Year 6

PGL Trip

We had a great time when we visited PGL at the beginning of November.

Hearts

Year 6 are learning all about the circulatory system. The children were split into mixed ability groups and given a heart that had been cut open to look at. All children were wearing gloves and had very thin straws to move and point at different parts of the heart. The children were using the scientific vocabulary for the different parts of the heart that they had learnt in the previous lesson.

Carrot Cookies

In Year 6 we have been learning about World War Two. We have been finding out all about rationing. We have up levelled ration recipes by adding key features of instructions, grammar and punctuation. We followed one of the recipes and baked carrot cookies, they were delicious!

V E Day

To celebrate the end of their WW2 Topic the children came to school dressed in clothes similar to those worn in WW2 or they wore red, white or blue as people did on V E Day. The children spent the morning watching a pantomime as people would have done during WW2. The children spent the other half of the morning finding out about how the war ended, watching videos from V E Day and making things for their V E Day celebration as people would have done when it was the end of the war. They made bunting, flags, mini flags for their cupcakes and paper hats. The children listened to Winston Churchill’s speech announcing the end of the war, they listened to music that was popular at the time of the war and sang cheery songs such as ‘pack up your troubles’ and ‘it’s a long way to Tipperary.’ The children then took part in their very own street party where they listened to music that was popular at the end of the war and tried food such as scones, jam tarts, spam, and homemade bread. The children and staff in year 6 thoroughly enjoyed celebrating V E Day!
