Pupil Voice is very important at Lostock.
Please also see the School Council Page for Initiatives and decisions our children have been a valued part of.
Do your teachers encourage you to read book about your History and Geography topics?
We have quite a few books about maps. We have a blue box full books about flying. It has books about Amelia Earhart. She is one of the people who flew. She is a pilot.
My favourite subject is History. Our teacher read The Eagle in the Snow. I read a non-fiction book.
Tell me about a piece of work you are proud of:
When we learned all about the Wright brothers and they made a new plane and they fllew it for the first time. When we asked our questions about all of the Titanic stuff that was on the tables. I asked what does RMS mean? How long was the Titanic? How many people could go on the Titanic?
Stonehenge was big stones carried to make Stone Henge. It is in Wiltshire and we are in Cheshire. The Stone age people travelled round with the animals for food and for clothes. They were Nomads (went to the working wall to check this word) We know about their houses.
It's about the Lion Salt works. We were learning about how they made salt. It changed because they were making too much brine- too much was being pumped out which made the building subside. We went there and we saw the building was slanted. Pan 4 was the drying room. All the poles were rusty and the bricks were subsided. I like the information we made about the Lion Salt works – we had a map and I realised how important salt was and that Salt was so important back in the Roman times that people used to bring a coffin and fill it with salt. Salt was so important for preserving food- when they were in battle they didn’t have to keep going back.
I was really interested in the Anderson Shelters work.
What do you enjoy about computing?
The pupils suggested lots of different things that they liked about computing. They described lots of the activities that they had completed but across all year groups, they agreed that using the computers independently and learning about new things and how things are made were the most enjoyable. They particularly liked using the computers to present their work for an audience.
How do you know how well you are doing in PE?
When we get selected to go to competitions and we self assess at the beginning and end of the session
What do you like about Art?
‘It makes me feel relaxed and happy’ and ‘It is therapeutic.’
How do we find out about the past?
Reading, Timelines, Researching, I-Pads/computers, talking to experts, photographs and pictures, listening, seeing and holding real resources.
What new knowledge do you have now that you didn't have in September?
6-figure coordinates, know that jelling is a type of artwork that the Vikings used. The Battle of Hastings was important because it was about who would take the throne. The Stone age people made their own glue.
What have you enjoyed most in Geography and History so far this year?
Doing the Stonehenge silhouette, comparing Athens and Sparta, the progressive map and timeline for the world wars in the front and backs of our books, finding out about the seasons, when the Greek visitors came in and we made coins for the city states.
We also discussed the timelines running through the classrooms and I explained the continuity and build-up of knowledge up to Y6. We also discussed how individual classes could add to their own timelines as their topics progressed.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
- There is a wide variety of subjects to write about and it helps you learn how to use punctuation correctly and when I get a job this will help me.
- I like learning new words.
- I like how you can learn about punctuation marks which helps improve my writing and gives it more pezazz!
- I like learning new sentences and making stories up.
- I like writing down conjunctions because it helps my sentences.
- I quite like reading tricky bits.
Did you enjoy Inter-Faith Week? What did you like best?
- We went on a journey to Mecca and I learnt lots of new things about the Salvation Army and what they do
- We researched Bahai on the computers and then shared what we found out with each other and then with the whole school in worship. It was great to work as a team
- I enjoyed the Labyrinth, it was nice and calming
