Events and Trips

Polar Express

 

We watched Polar Express to begin our new writing unit and to inspire our writing over the next few weeks. We had a magical day as we dressed in PJs, drank hot chocolate and received a train ticket and bell.

 

 

 

 

Paper Chain Challenge

Today we took part in The Paper Chain Challenge

The aim was for our groups to make the longest, strongest paper chain following a set of rules and using team work.

Rules

  1. Each ring must be cut to the width of a ruler.
  2. The same colour must NOT be used next to each other.
  3. Each ring must be glued safely and securely.

You must work as a team

Rock Star Day

 

To help celebrate and raise awareness of Times Tables Rock Stars we held a fancy dress day. Children also had the chance to participate in the online battle against their classes. 

Halloween fun!


After such hard work throughout Autumn Term 1, on the last day we dressed up for our Sponsored Spooky Sprint, decorated spooky biscuits and played some games before watching a Halloween themed film!

Sponsored Spooky Sprint

 

This week we announced our first fundraiser of the year which is the Sponsored Spooky Sprint. All children in Year 6 are excited to take part in this event and are already trying hard to raise as much money as possible. 

 

 

Partake WW2 Day  

We are very excited to have the chance to meet Mr Adby and take part in a day filled with fun, exciting and knowledgeable activities based around WW2. Some of us have even come as a war time figure

WW2 Dancing

During our first session of the day, Mr Adby taught us that during the war moral was low and people found day to day life hard. To relax and enjoy some time together people used to dance and listen to music. Two of these were The Lambeth Walk and the Jitterbug which we learnt the dance to.

 

War Time Artefacts

We have enjoyed getting the chance to experience handling some of the artefacts that were used by the army and by civilians during World War Two. We tried to guess what they were used for before Mr Adby explained how they were used and by who. 

War Time Rationing

To help us understand the hardships of WW2 we have discussed the amount of food that was consumed by people during the war. We found out that each person had to use a ration book to enable them to buy and collect their food. We took part in a rationing quiz and we were shocked to learn how little people had to eat and how they had to make it last.

War Celebrations

The end of the war was an emotional as well as happy time for the people of Britain. To help celebrate this, people had street parties and decorated their homes with homemade bunting and decorations. We have created our own bunting this morning for our classroom. 

Evacuation

This afternoon we have been discussing evacuation and if this was the right thing to do or not. We watched clips from 1940s that encouraged parents to send their children away. We put ourselves into the position of parents during WW2 and thought about how we would have felt.
