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.
