What we’ve been doing…

Remembrance

Year 6 are looking at both WW1 and WW2. We have looked at the significance of the poppy and why we have Remembrance Day. The children have painted poppies to create the picture of a soldier kneeling at a grave we have displayed this in the classroom window.

Day Of The Dead/Light

The Day of the Dead masks were created by the children during project week . The children researched the tradition of Day of the Dead and compared the traditions with Halloween . Both children and staff had great fun.

We also studied light and how it travels in Science. Here are some photos of the children investigating how light travels.

My Voice Matters

We are taking part in a project called ‘My Voice Matters’ along with other schools in our Cluster. We have had visits from a Poet and a Musician who are inspiring the children to be creative through poetry and music. Watch this space for what the children produce over the next few weeks.

Young Teacher

After our session with the musician, Max went home and produced some amazing music using Chrome Music Lab. We didn’t know if we could save our work but Max figured it out and was able to teach the class how to do it. Mrs Bedford learnt something new too!
