Our super Year 6 have stepped back in time to the start of WW2 with their independent explanation of the events occurring during the evacuation of Dunkirk. They have also been ordering the facts leading to the victory of the Battle of Britain, deciding whether it was technology such as RADAR and the superiority of the Spitfire, human factors such as pilot resilience and the aircrew's tireless repair of the planes or the change in weather that contributed most to the victory.
During the European Day of Languages, the children looked at the German language and created a fact file on Germany.
The children have enjoyed Taiko drumming: a firm favourite amongst staff too! They also choreographed some wonderfully emotive, WW2 inspired dances in P.E.
In Maths, they have been understanding negative numbers and in DT, they have begun to design their own birdhouse.
Using the novel, Letters From The Lighthouse, they used description to draw their interpretation of Queenie's house. They used extracts from the text to "Observe, Wonder, Infer".
A brilliant class charter was agreed by the children to ensure they have a happy and safe environment in which to learn.
Well Done Year 6!
