Welcome back and Happy New Year!
Welcome back to remote learning too...we are going to be using TEAMS for this - hopefully from tomorrow - there is already work there if you can access it. If not...use this for today.
Please see the homework page for today's work

Year 6 pupils have been leading our class worship this week.
Our new, News Champions led our Big Picture News discussion - Should we treat everyone the same?
Five other pupils led a worship about the election of Kamala Harris and how this links to other moments in history such as Rosa Parks and Ruby Bridges. See below for the PowerPoint they used.

We investigated - Why were animals important in World War One?
We found out lots of interesting facts and concluded that without animals the war would have been very different. There would have been transport and communication problems that would have seriously damaged our country's ability to fight. Other roles (like spying and sniffing out poison gas) were perhaps less important but still useful. They were also important for morale. It is hard to measure this. At a time when those fighting were often scared and lonely, animals provided comfort and hope.
Some of us asked if we would have won the war without the use of animals. That would depend upon if the enemy was still using animals or not.
We also investigated The Korean War - why has it been overlooked compared to other wars?
Pupils explored this and came up with lots of reasons.
We watched an animated short film about a boy seeing the from a child's perspective.
This inspired the poems below.
