Class 4

Remembrance Day

We rehearsed and performed choral performances of ‘In Flanders Fields’. We then created our own Remembrance day poems and used water colour to decorate them.

Africa

This half term, we’ve been learning all about Africa. We researched one of the countries in Africa and created non chronological reports about it.

World War II

As part of our history learning, we visited Eden Camp where we learnt more about life during World War II. The children particularly enjoyed learning about the great escape and what life was like for prisoners of war.

We’ve learnt about persuasive techniques used during World War II such as propaganda. We identified features and created our own propaganda posters to help save the environment.

Over the half term, we have learnt different printing techniques and used these to create bunting for the classroom like they had to celebrate VE day.

House Captains

The Year 6s read their House Captain speeches to the school which explained why they would make the best House Captain. Lots of the children thought carefully about how they demonstrated our school values of faith, courage and love and how they would develop these in school. The rest of the school then voted at the voting station.

The votes were then counted and the House Captains this year are-

Well done year 6 on your amazing speeches!

Buddies

Today, Year 6 met their Reception buddies and had a lovely time reading to them and playing. They can’t wait to spend more time with them over the year!

 

High 5

Class 4 thought about 5 things they were particularly good at and wrote them on a template of their hand. This is on our door to remind us how many different skills we have.
