As part of our topic we looked at how fossils are made and what paleontologists can learn from them. We also made our own fossils.
As part of our WW2 topic we had a VE Day dance.
Year 6 learned how to dance 1940s style and then we cooked some food based on old “rations” recipes (some were tastier than others!)
We’ve been practicing our speaking and reading skills with some infant story books. Our aim was to impress the infants with our voices, volume and some pretty funny accents!
WARNING… some of these pictures are toooooo cute!
Year 6 visited the Grundy Gallery to check out our own art work displayed in the Illuminations section of the gallery!
Well done everyone…your display ace!
How amazing do Year 6’s Blitz paintings and Blitz inspired poems look!
Last week was our 2017 book days. Just like the last one, Year 6 were dressed as some great characters!
Our World Faith week was based on Buddhism. As part of our learning, Year 6 took a trip to Manjushri Buddhist Centre in Ulverston.
Whilst there we learned about:
- different Buddhas
- how to meditate
- Buddhist symbols
We also got some time to do some art work; to hug a huge tree and to throw stones into the sea.
I forgot to add the photographs from our “Wedding of the Week”.
In RE Year 6 are learning about the sacraments. Mr Waywell and Mrs Whitmore decided to get married and show them what a marriage ceremony was like. Mrs Whitehead took the reigns to perform the ceremony with best men, brides maids and a very supportive group watching the wedding.
As Year 6 ended out WW2 topic we decided to cook using some ration recipes.
Which did you like? Would you like the recipe to make them again?
Schools Alive were amazing this week! Here are some of their performances!
