Back in October the children started to study Walter Tull for Black History Month. Walter Tull was a professional footballer and fought as a soldier in World War One. The children loved learning about him! We started by reading a book which was a scrapbook of his life. We then completed some online research, created a timeline of his life and then finally the children created a double-page spread to show what they had learnt about him. They have taken a while to complete but are now finished and looking amazing!
In preparation for their cooking soon, the children taste tested some modern vegetable pasties – Bombay potato and spinach pasties. There was quite a divide of opinions in the classroom. A lot of the children thought it was delicious, whereas others thought it was too spicy. The children will soon be planning their own vegetable pasties.
During Anti-Bullying week Year 6 took part in lots of different check-ins and activities. We discussed who we could go to for support if we felt bullying was taking place, what kind words had been said to us during the week and more!
We also took part in a special anti-bullying live lesson and a Children in Need mood booster! This was a great way to end such an important week.
To kick off their electricity unit, Year 6 spent their first lesson exploring static electricity. In this lesson they found out how static electricity is created with the transfer of electrons between objects. The children had great fun!
Year 6 have recently finished their writing unit based on The Highwayman Poem. Throughout the unit, the children have been spending time learning the words of the poem. Here you can watch the children performing it.
