Do you still want to learn more about World War 1? Try these BBC videos, there’s loads more to learn!
This week we themed most of our lessons around World War 1.
We had a drama themed day on followed by a presentation to parents, wrote WW1 newspaper articles, made our own poppies, learned to waltz whilst drinking cloudy lemonade and watched War Horse.
Year 6 got into the spirit of the week and everyone dressed up on Friday for our themed day (even the teachers!)
This week our focus has been shapes. We’ve looked at the properties of 2D shapes and 3D shapes and also solving problems with the nets of cubes. What did you think? Are there any facts that you now know that you didn’t before?
Yesterday we had a World War 1 drama session to begin our week learning about the Great War.
Anyone fancy watching the play again?
Here’s the cheesy one too! Enjoy!
Here is one of the videos from Friday’s lesson. “The Sneeze”…delicious!
Our new science topic is Microorganisms. Watch this video to introduce to what they are.
Our first walking club started on Sunday with an amazing 18 Year 6 pupils venturing out into the countryside.
Our first walk was Nicky Nook, over in Scorton and we had some beautiful sunshine!
The walk took us to the top of Nicky Nook where there was a great view, including Blackpool Tower. On the way up we:
- Saw a dead squirrel
- Got very hot and sweaty
- Ate Mrs Mallinson’s fudge
- Met some lovely people walking (especially the man who explained all of the mountains in the view!)
- Talked a lot about food (especially ice creams!)
Once at the top, we stopped and had a spot of lunch before the group ran/rolled/were dragged down part of the hill.
The way down was much easier. We:
- Saw lots of sheep
- Sang “Baa Baa Black Sheep”
- Picked blackberries
- Splashed in puddles
- Climbed in giant tubes
- Climbed stone towers
- Ate chocolate
- Saw some sausage dogs
We then rewarded ourselves with an ice cream and a play on the park (though Kelsey dropped hers outside the shop!)
Roll on the next walk, this was great fun and the group did us proud! No moaning, just lots of enthusiasm, polite attitudes to other walkers and excellent behaviour…I was very impressed!
A HUGE welcome to the new Year 6! We hope that you have a fantastic year, learn lots and create some brilliant memories!
P.S. Look at these pictures I found! lol
Year 6 have again shown their artistic talents as they painted the boards in the infant playground! Thanks to the PTFA for providing us with the paint and brushes!
As part of our PE subject of learning Golf, Year 6 visited the Tee Time Driving Range.
