Science - exploring evidence for evolution using fossils (10/2/23)
Internet Safety week (6th - 10th February)
This week is Internet Safety week. The theme this year is 'what to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life offline'. To celebrate Internet Safety week, our computing lesson was designated to discussing our internet use and ranking different elements of our digital footprint and online useage. We discussed how different things that we experience online can make us feel, the physical responses that our bodies can have and finally how to overcome any negative responses.
Year 6 trip to Tudor House Museum (1/11/22)
As part of our World War Two topic launch, year six enjoyed a trip to Tudor House Museum, in Worcester. At the museum, the children participated in workshops about rationing and 'make do and mend', as well as listening to a talk by Alec, who was an evacuee during the war. We learnt so much from our trip and are excited to continue our learning at school!

Mayan masks project (w/c 10th and 17th October)
Over the last two weeks, Year 6 have been working on their Mayan masks project. We started by researching different types of masks, learning about their different materials, uses and who would wear them. Following this, we designed our own masks and then started the process of creating them out of modroc. The final step, was to paint our designs, using acrylic paints and applying our knowledge of the colour wheel and mixing paints to achieve different shades. We also linked our project to our English lessons, by drafting an instruction text to explain how to create a Mayan mask.
