This half term in year 6 we have thoroughly enjoyed being back in class and having the opportunities to work as a whole class. We have been busy with visitors, having had weekly life coach lessons for all classes from Paddy Venner. He has been teaching the children about resilience, positive attitude and making the correct choices. We have also had staff in from one of the high schools where the children had many opportunities to ask questions. This made them feel more reassured and excited about the year ahead for them.
In class we have been busy with our science work on light. We have learnt about how light travels, can be bent, refracted and split. The children enjoyed the practical lessons involving experiments.
In History, Reading and English we have been learning about World War 2. We have been reading Carries War for our reading and English lessons. The children have written letters and short stories from the perspective of an evacuee. They have enjoyed this and have shown how their own reading is coming through into their writing.
