Welcome to Year 6
Visit to the Beacon
We visited the Beacon to take part in their 'Keep the Home Fires Burning' workshop. Alan talked to the children about the causes of World War 2 and they explored topics like blackout, evacuation, rationing and the Blitz. The children learned lots of new information and got to handle artefacts and historical sources.
We started off our classification topic with some sweetie sorting. The children had to design question keys that would separate the sweets. They did a super job and got to eat them at the end!
In PE, the children are learning the skills and rules of tag rugby. They have been doing lots of drills involving carrying and passing the ball properly, and practising their footwork.
Our Art focus this half-term is drawing. The children drew fruit and vegetables and then added colour with a range of media.
