World War One - Lest We Forget
Our newest English genre has focused on balanced arguments. After analysing their features and exploring a range of examples, we then planned and began to write our own versions, based on answering the question: Should horses have been used during World War One?
Our newest Science focus is on Light. After studying the anatomy of the eye, we began to explore how light travels. Using the idea of periscopes and how they were used in World War One, we carried out our own investigations.
Some of the Deer Class have been continuing their learning at home, demonstrating an excellent commitment to achieve! The extra work has included Science work on the heart, art linked to World War One and writing about the outbreak of the war. Well done, Year 6!
Year 6 have had a superb week examining World War One. With data to interpret the casualties from different countries, Kahoot retrieval quizzes, an art analysis to gain information about life and writing about the trenches - well done Deer class!
Thank you to the whole school and the children’s families for attending our Remembrance Assembly today - the Year 6s did a fantastic job in sharing their beautiful messages of remembrance.
Our Remembrance display in the hall is ready for our assembly on Friday. We are looking forward to commemorating this important time with the whole school.
Year 6 have been historical detectives today, trying to solve the murder mystery of the 20th century! We have studied sources to try to discover how World War One began, evaluating their reliability. Fantastic work Deer Class!
Our new World War One display is ready for this term’s important topic. You can already see some of the children’s fantastic work commemorating this occasion.
We had a brilliant parent event this afternoon, sharing our curriculum week linked to WW1 and the lives of Eliza and William. The children presented their hard work, including their art, drama and research. Thank you to the parents for joining us.
Our World War One boards are almost ready for our parent event, sharing what we have learnt from the WW1 boxes we have borrowed. Just the finishing touches to add and some drama to perfect, then Year 6 will be ready!
Here is some stunning World War One artwork which Year 6 produced yesterday, in preparation for our Remembrance assembly and WW1 topic next term.
Year 6 are absolutely loving exploring the WW1 boxes! They are asking so many excellent, curious questions and finding the artefacts fascinating. Keep an eye out for our immersive learning this week, ready to launch our WW1 topic next term.
