Year 6

Tuesday 22nd November 2022

 

As part of their RE, our Year 6 children chose to adopt the Humanist approach of caring for the environment and do a good deed by litter picking in the streets surrounding our school.  

 

It was a bright, sunny autumn day, we went out in small groups armed with litter pickers, gloves and bin bags. We all really enjoyed the feeling of doing something good for the local community. The children were so enthusiastic that they actually ended up retrieving rubbish from the front gardens of local residents! 

 

We managed to collect 4 bin bags of rubbish! The most random find was a toothbrush in The Fairway and a flannel in Eastwood Road North. The children were hoping to find the whole bathroom suite!

As part of this half term's theme, the children in Year 6 have been learning about World War II.

This week, in our History lessons, they have been organising World War II events and organising them into a timeline.

This raised a lot of questions from the children who are extremely keen to find out more about this period in our history.

Duxford - Imperial War Museum

 

Last Friday, as part of their World War II History curriculum, Year 6 visited Duxford Air Museum. The children immersed themselves into the experience by dressing as evacuees, in clothes of the era. Many public visitors at the venue commented on how fantastic the children looked!

Year 6 loved the whole day, looking at all the exhibits of tanks, planes, trucks, uniforms and weapons, learning more and more about the war and what people went through at the time. 

Seeing a Spitfire and a Hurricane was amazing but there was all types of aircraft at the museum and the children even went inside Concorde!

The highlight of the day for many was seeing the planes and helicopters of World War II practising on the airfield, as Duxford was holding a special Battle of Britain event the following day.
