- About Us
Earlier this week, the children used all of their knowledge about nationals parks and the impact of human activity on these places of natural beauty through a roleplay activity. They enjoyed getting into character and both considering and challenging the points of view of different groups of people. They were able to demonstrate lots of ruby power by empathising with others.
Year 6 eagerly accepted their Commando Joe's mission this week, as they were determined to decode the secret information they had previously collected. They learned how to use Morse code and flashlights to communicate important messages to each other.
What a week!
The children have been exploring their creative sides in their painting lessons this week. Inspired by the Mexican self-portrait artist, Frida Kahlo, the children have learned how to accurately colour match an image by using tertiary colours. They even learned how to make grey without using black! The children have also experimented with the different effects and textures they can create by using their paintbrush and the thickness of their paint in different ways. Watch this space to see the amazing artwork they create next week.
Of course, the highlight of the week has to be Muddy Mayhem! The children had (literal) bucketfuls of fun traversing round the course on the school field - made even more exciting by the appearance of our local firefighting team. Smiles were seen all round as the children slipped, dived and sprinted through the mud. Thank you Mr Askew for putting on such a fun event once again.
What a start to Year 6! The children have hit the ground running, becoming secret spies, just like our key individual Nancy Wake! This week they have explored the causes for the Second World War, analysed sources to learn about the evacuation of children and compared and contrasted wartime rationed food with their own modern day diet.
To finish the week, they took on the role of spies in training to protect vital information and learned how to say personal pronouns in Spanish.
