Friday 20th March 2020
Today we said goodbye to one another for the near future. Understandably emotions have been running high but we tried to enjoy the day and each other's company as much as possible. We put on our own class talent show, spent time outdoors playing football, went on the trim trail and were lucky enough to participate in a Samba workshop.
Wow! What a busy fun few days we've had celebrating Science Week. From dressing up as scientists, completing a daily mile in fancy dress to creating our own slime and exploding coke bottles! We have made predictions and learnt some new words including "nucleation"!
For part of our Amazing America topic we have learnt about American pop artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. We looked at lots of their art work and noted the techniques they used: a few colours, solid blocks of colour, dots and stripes. We then created our own pop art based on our portraits or pop art words.
Harry Potter Studios
On December 5th we headed off to Harry Potter Studios for our class trip. We had a fun filled day learning about the secrets behind the magic of Hogwarts. We saw lots of the models, props and costumes used in the different films and even got to walk along Diagon Alley and through Gringotts Bank. A fantastic time was had by all!
Women in War
During our topic lesson this week we were learning and researching the roles of women during WW2. We learnt about the changes in employment for women during the war and the different job roles they stepped into whilst the men were away fighting, e.g. farming, engineers, bus drivers, factory workers etc. We looked at some examples of propaganda posters and then designed our own.
Children in Need
To support Children in Need we came to school in 'comfortable' clothes & participated in the Joe Wicks workout with our buddies.
Anti-bullying Week 2019
We've had a very busy week in Year 6 - we have been thinking about the importance of being an upstander not a bystander to help prevent bullying. In groups we wrote, acted & filmed short sketches to highlight this. We also participated in "Odd Sock Day" to celebrate our differences.
Henry Moore Art Work
We looked at some images drawn by Henry Moore during WW2 based on people sheltering during air raids. We re-enacted some of the positions the people sat in and looked at how our bodies were shaped. In groups we used chalks and pastels to re-create one of his famous pictures.
