Y6 have been developing their athletics skills!
Sheffield United Football Club have been visiting Y6 every week to help the children develop their skills. They have been learning about running (short and long distances) as well as throwing and aiming at targets. They have really enjoyed it so far!
Year 6 Pupils and their parents are invited to an Open Morning on Saturday 24th September 2016 from 10:00am until 12:00pm. This annual event is an opportunity to explore All Saints Catholic High School, meet staff and students and find out how to apply for a place with us for the next academic year - September 2017. There will be a range of presentations and activities in which everyone can participate.
Year 6 went to Crucial crew where they learnt some important skills. They learnt some basic first aid, internet safety and about keeping themselves safe and they all had a great day too!

You can see the documents below if you would like to enrol your child on one of the following singing or music courses.
Y6 are busy learning about the Egyptians.
In Design Technology, last half term, we made Egyptian death masks. We designed and sketched death masks ensuring the shape was accurate. We then measured and cut out the template on card. We attached a mask and then decorated in many different ways. We all enjoyed making, and designing our death masks.
This year, the vegetables that the children grew in the school garden seemed worthy of first place in any green-fingered competition!
What better place for them to go than their very own school kitchen. The talented kitchen staff cooked some delicious and nutritious meals for everybody to enjoy.
Remember, if you would like to grow your own food, a big garden is not needed. Sprinkle your selected seeds into a container if space is at a premium. Alternatively, to get you started, if you would like to take a cutting of the hardy mint from the school garden, see Miss Rafiq (Y6) and she will be happy to help.
On Wednesday the 10th of June, 10 pupils from Year 6 visited Kelham Island Industrial Museum to take part in the Build It fun day, which involved 150 pupils from schools in South Yorkshire. The challenge for Lowfield was to design and build models of a health centre, a mode of transport and a fairground ride, all of which would be added to a large model town at the end of the day. The children worked extremely hard and had a really enjoyable time – perhaps it has inspired them to become the architects and engineers of the future?
During the day we learned all about fire safety, travel safety, first aid and staying safe online, though the highlight for most people was taking part in a mock hearing at a Magistrates Court!
We all came away from the day with lots of essential knowledge.
Here at Lowfield school, we think that it is important for children to have an understanding of the food that they eat. A nutritious and balanced diet is essential as is leads to an active mind and body. With this in mind, Y6SR headed off to the Lowfield garden!
During the warmer months, each class planted a variety of seeds in their allocated plant bed. Come Autumn, these tiny seeds had grown into some delicious looking fruit and vegetables which we dug out of the ground…
We decided upon a menu of delicious dishes before spending an exciting afternoon in the kitchen. This is what we created:
-A mouth-watering vegetable curry
-Some creamy mint yoghurt
-A beetroot chutney
After all of that hard work, we sat down together to enjoy our healthy and scrumptious meal.
