First Week Back
In Year 6 this week, we have been learning lots about our WWII topic and the concepts we will be studying this term. The children have all enjoyed sharing their understanding and own personal links to WWII; they are showing such enthusiasm towards broadening their knowledge about such a significant event in British history. We are looking forward to exploring the concepts of ‘morality’ and ‘conflict’ in further detail which will certainly spark some mature discussion. This term, we are focusing on our school value of ‘resilience’ and it’s been wonderful to see the children already demonstrating their growth mindset skills when approaching a challenge within their learning. A blue luggage label could be up for grabs if the children continue to shine within this area.
We have kick-started the term with a gruesome science experiment where the class created their very own ‘blood smoothie’. We discussed the varying components in blood and used real life ingredients to replicate each one. It was lovely to see the children applying their knowledge of the circulatory system and justifying their predictions.
We’re certain the children will sleep well this weekend after such a jam-packed week. Don’t forget to keep checking this page for more updates! Have a wonderful weekend.
