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 have produced some great history work this term - here are some of our prize winners.

 

 See below for photos of our History Ambassador team and our new, News Champion team

 

We've been raising money by designing Christmas cards and we've been learning about how to stay safe during Covid Christmas. 

Thank you to all of them! 

Art lesson- Banksy Advent graffiti -style art work

Science lesson- how does exercise affect our bodies?

 

 

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. 

 

 

 See below for some of the work we produced for our Remembrance Walk

 

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.

 

            Some pupils created these emotive speeches, urging people to                   remember the animals of war and why they were important - 

 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.

Our enterprise project

We were entrepreneurs!

We had the task of turning £20 into much more - and we did!

We had to come up with an idea that would sell and make us a profit.

We researched our costings to get the lowest prices. 

We made labels to make our products look attractive.

We put together a range of sweets to sell around the the of Frozen.

For example, we put marshmallows and other sweets so that a snowman could be assembled. We had snowman food as mini marshmallows. 

We had to pitch our products to the whole school and then we got to selling!

Working as a team we made £70 profit.

Here we are sharing our family stories of those who served in the two world wars of the last century.
