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.
