Year 6 had great fun dressing up for World Book Day. They completed some wonderful artwork based on the novel Kensuke's Kingdom and created their own versions of the famous 'The Great Wave' masterpiece by artist, Hokusai. They also explored the characters in the novel through the use of a variety of drama techniques such as 'Conscience Alley'.

Diwali Celebrations 6SH Group work ( in progress )
Diwali celebrations (6SM)
In class 6SM today (20.10.17), we have celebrated the Hindu festival - Diwali. Throughout the day, the children have learnt about the meaning of Diwali and the ways in which Diwali is celebrated. The children have made Diwali lanterns and the children have also participated in some food tasting.
On the 16th of October 2017, 6SM visited the RSPB visitor centre. While on the visit, the children learnt the following:
- how to classify a range of creatures;
- how to identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment.
In addition, the children have also investigated different plants and animals in various habitats.
Good examples of learning journal homework
This week in year 6 we have studied Black History Week. Throughout the week, we have studied Rosa Parks (a civil rights activist) and Faith Ringgold ( an artist and story writer). In addition, we have also looked at the Wall of Respect which was located in Chicago before it was damaged in a fire. Over the week, the children in year 6 have created many pieces of art work and carried out some drama work relating to Rosa Parks.
In Black History Week, 6SH studied the civil rights activist Rosa Parks and completed some speech bubbles and a drama sketch, empathising with her predicament in refusing to vacate her seat for a white person. We also completed 'block-style' artwork looking Black role models.
