Year 6 Learning Log

Have a look at what Cedar, Palm and Willow have been up to...

Odd Socks Day

As part of our Anti-bullying Week, we celebrated Odd Socks Day. This year's theme is: Reach Out.

The Journey

 

We had a virtual visit from Debbie. She works for the National Holocaust Centre in Nottinghamshire. She ran a workshop called 'The Journey'.

 

 

Step back in time to Nazi Germany. Step into the life of Leo, a young German Jewish boy growing up in 1930s Berlin. Everything changes for him under Nazi rule. Eventually, his family makes the brave choice to send him to safety in the UK, as a child refugee on the Kindertransport.

 

Leo’s story raises big questions. What is it like to be seen as ‘different’? What courage does it take to stand up for our friends against bullying? Take a journey into one of the most dramatic periods of world history, to help you think about identity, friendship and kindness in your own life today.

 

The children really engaged with this workshop and asked many important questions.

Pudsey Ramble - great fun had by all!

National Poetry Day - 6th October

 

As part of the celebrations, Year 6 learnt and performed a poem called 'The Battle of Britain' by James Wiggins.

We also wrote acrostic poems inspired by the book 'The Lost Words' by Robert Macfarlane. Our poems were entered into a national competition. Fingers crossed. Here are a few examples:

Design Technology - Cam Toys

The children have worked really hard to design and create their moving toys, using cams mechanisms. 

Evacuee Day

 

In history, we are learning about World War II and, in particular, key turning points of the conflict, such as the Battle of Britain.

 

To launch our studies, we experienced what life was like as an evacuee. We heard Neville Chamberlain announce that Britain was at war, packed our suitcases and bid a tearful farewell to our parents.

 

We travelled by train to the village of Melbourne (our village did host evacuees during the war) and a very strict billeting officer organised us. We waited to be 'chosen' by our foster families.
