Ancient Greek Urn Making
Linked to the topic of Ancient Greece, Year 6 have been making Greek urns in Design Technology. This has involved planning and sketching of designs before creating the models using papier mache. Next steps involve adding handles and painting Ancient Greek symbols.
The First Men on the Moon - A Newspaper Report
Year 6 are very interested in current affairs; we regularly watch "Newsround" and discuss the events that are happening in the world. Following China's achievement of landing men on the far side of the moon this month, Year 6 have been researching the first moon landing in 1969.
Direct and reported speech was used to convey the atmosphere to newspaper readers almost 50 years ago. The pupils developed their ICT skills through using Publisher to present their work. The School Office currently has a display of the articles- when you are next in do take a look.
Year 6 pupils enjoyed making a Christingle each this afternoon for the forthcoming service. We discussed the symbolism of the Christingle- what the candle, sticks and red ribbon mean to Christians.
Remembrance Week, 5th - 9th November
To commemorate the Centenary of the First World War, Year 6 have been writing in character as a soldier sending a letter home from the trenches. They have also looked at poems including "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon and discussed meaning and symbolism.
The children have moulded Poppies from clay and painted them. They have also baked and tasted a "Trench Cake".
