Year 6 – WW2 leaders research

After our discussion in the morning about who the various nations leaders were during World War 2, there are some links below which you may want to use to:

1. Look at the websites below and decide which leader you would like to make a factfile about.

2. Using the sheet provided, create factfile. Remember we are not copying! Write the information down in your own words. We are particularly interested in what they did, and what impact they had on the course of the war.

Year 1 – water colours

Within literacy, the children have been rewriting their favourite story, the robot and the bluebird. Today they created their own little bird who brings the robots heart back to life. The focus of today’s learning was the use of water colours and how to create delicate strokes like feathers.

The children reviewed their paintings as a whole class and identified that too much water causes the colours to run. For the second paintings the children decided to use less water and focus on the shapes they can make with the paintbrush.

Whole School Litter Pick

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This afternoon, the entire school, including parents/carers, teachers and children, went outside and cleared areas of the school from rubbish. This was due to the school parliament discussing their end of year goal where they would like to improve the local environment.

During an assembly, prior to the litter pick, school parliament members shared with the school, reasons why the environment is important and projects that will be happening in classes to support the school aim. A newsletter will be coming out next week with more details.

We would like to thank those parents and carers who took time to support our litter pick.

Below is the video, shared in assembly this afternoon.

Year 6 -Journey Outreach

Today, year 6 have had a great day of thinking and enquiry. We were extremely lucky to be joined by a team from The National Holocaust Centre and Museum who shared an insightful journey of a boy, Leo, in 1938. The children took part in a range of discussions and were given clues to establish who the boy was and how his journey from a Berlin began. It has been extremely insightful for the children and todays experience will be the foundation for our next piece of writing!
