Welcome to Spring Term 2019
Unit 3 Careers Fair
The whole of Unit 3 took part in a hugely successful careers fair. Representatives were present from Devon County Council Human Resources Department, British Airways Cabin Crew, Devon and Cornwall Police Dog Handler, Civil Engineering, Exeter University, Exeter College alongside small business owners from Flo's Nails, The Distinguished Dog Company and Needs Cleaning Needs Company. Each child had the opportunity to speak to all representatives and they asked some well thought out questions. The children were really inspired by the event and came away with some amazing ideas for the future.
"Today was amazing.We learned so much and had so much fun". Kiya
A message to our visitors. "Thank you for spending time with us talking about your careers. You've inspired many young minds. Your love for your jobs sets an example to us" Alex.
All adults in school are incredibly proud of Year 5 and 6, who conducted themselves with maturity throughout the event and proved themselves to be great ambassadors for Willowbank School. Well done Unit 3.
Science in Year 6
Year 6 have been learning about electricity. They planned their own investigation to find out whether wire length would affect how components work in a circuit. They made their own predictions, carried out the investigations independently and discussed their results.
Fantastic work Year 6.
Our local Police Community Support Officers visited Year 6 to talk to them about internet safety. Year 6 listened really carefully and asked some well thought out, sensible questions.
Kestral and Buzzard classes will be visited next week. Further information can be found using the link below.
Home learning in Unit 3
Year 5 and 6 have been busy with their home learning projects. The children have been very enthusiastic about the range of suggested activities and we have already seen some amazing examples of cookery, art, story writing and poetry. Mrs Hillson was so impressed, she gave out Head Teachers awards to 3 members of Hawk class. Keep sending in your projects, we love to see them.
Unit 3 Careers fair - Wednesday 30th January at 9.30. If you would like to come along and talk to our Year 5/6s about your work please let us know.
Spring Term Theme - Africa
Our topic this term is Africa. At the start of the term, the children took part in an African art day. Everyone worked really hard and there were some amazing end results. There are definitely some budding artists in Year 5/6. Well done Unit 3.
