Welcome to Year 6!
It has been an extremely fun week in Year 6! During Science, we made the Solar System using different varieties and sizes of fruits. We also learnt about the brain and how it works. Here are some facts about the brain: we have 3 brains in 1; it smells like cheese; feels like jelly and it gives commands to the body. This week we took part in an Escape Room. We had to answer maths questions to open locks, to get clues. We needed to get 8 clues to then open the final lock which had 3 different types of prizes. During English we wrote an origin story for characters from "The Nowhere Emporium" Daniel, Lucien Silver and Vindictus Sharpe.

During Spanish we learnt the alphabet and rooms inside of a house. In Guided Reading we marked a SATS test.

What an incredible WW2 week we have had!!! Earlier this week, on Tuesday, we took part in a Holocaust workshop where we learnt about what life was like in WW2 for the German Jews. We heard survivor stories and became aware of how German Jewish children were evacuated from Germany. Also, on Thursday, we went on a trip to Lotherton Hall where we roleplayed as World War 2 evacuees. We also learnt first aid knowledge, morse code and found out fascinating facts about the history of the house and how it became a hospital for soldiers during WW1 and 2. In Maths, we rworked on simplifying fractions and solving problems. During English, we wrote a newspaper report based on the WW1 Christmas Truce and how extraordinary it was. In Espanol we read the story of Little Red Riding Hood in Spanish.

What an extraordinary week in Year 6 we've had! We did bikeability, which is a cycling course about learning how to ride (safely) on the roads. In Art we cooked Lord Woolton's Pies which links to our history topic. This pie was made in World War 2. We also made firework art based on bonfire night. In English we started writing a set of instructions to bake a pie. During Maths we recapped our knowledge on adding fractions with different denominators and recapped times tables. This week was anti-bullying week we learnt lots about what bullying is and how it can affect people.
Children In Need
We have had an amazing first week, in our second half term of year 6! In Guided Reading, we are reading a new World War 2 book called The Harmonica. We have been practising our inference skills using our previous knowledge of Anne Frank. During maths,we have been dividing. In history we have gained more knowledge about evacuees and who evacuation affected. We had great fun hot seating. We have also sketched bonfire art which was cool.
Persuading women to work during WW2
Our first Half Term is over and what a lot we have achieved! During English we have been learning the famous WW2 poem "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae and what it means. In Maths we have been jogging our memories on fractions by multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting them. This week in Guided Reading we have finished reading Anne Frank and have almost finished Friend or Foe. We had our smashing showcase this week - did you come? We performed the poem In Flanders Fields and sang the wartime song Hey Mr Miller. We all think that our parents were very impressed.
We can't wait to find out what we are learning about next half term.
