6D class highlights – Spring term


World Book Day – Thursday 8th
March 2018

On Thursday 8th
March, Highfield celebrated World Book day! The teachers in key stage 2 dressed
up as characters from the book, Peter Pan
by J.M. Barrie and 6D made a fantastic effort with their fantastic dressing
up costumes! In the morning, we had an assembly let by Captain Hook! (Mr
Wilson) where he shared that the theme of this year’s world book day was
sharing a book. In the afternoon, we shared and recommended our favourite books
to one another. We then redesigned our favourite books illustrations/ front
cover and rewrote the blurb of our chosen book. A brilliant day was had by all!

Lewis in 6D said, “I really
enjoyed the day and everyone loved my costume (I was the BFG!)”

Vina in 6D said, “I
really enjoyed re-creating my favourite book and thinking about how I could
create a new cover to appeal to new readers!”

Hannah in 6D said, “It was a fun day – it is great when we all get dressed up and share
our favourite books with our friends.”


International Women’s Day – Friday 9th
March 2018

On Friday 9th March, Highfield celebrated
International Women’s Day!  In 6D, we began
by looking at a timeline of inspirational women throughout history. This included
discussions on Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Harriet Tubman, Emmeline Pankhurst,
Florence Nightingale, Anne Frank and Malala Yousafzai.

We then as a class decided on 13
influential women we knew little about and decided to ask the following
questions for each of them: when were they were born, what was their role in
society and what did they contribute to female empowerment? The women we chose
to explore further were Coco Chanel, Agent Fifi, Mary Seacole, Frida Kahlo,
Marie Curie, Jane Austen, Anne Frank, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Sacagawea,
Gertrude Ederle, Emmeline Pankhurst and Mary Anning. We then shared and
discussed each of the women, teaching our friends what we had learnt and why we
believed we should be thankful for their contributions to society.   

In the afternoon, we learnt that there
are still some countries across the world where women have not been given the
right to vote. We wrote short persuasive speeches encouraging these countries
to allow women to have equal rights and an equal chance to vote in their
countries’ general elections.

Finally, linking to our topic of Tomorrow’s World, we were given
inventions developed and created by inspirational female inventors and
mathematicians. Using these inventions, we considered what life would be like
without these incredible discoveries and creations.  


Fatima in 6D said, “I
loved learning about inspirational women that I had never heard of before!”

Ilias in 6D said, “It
was great to be creative and discuss how women’s rights have changed for the
better – and rightly so!”

Ioana in 6D said, “It
was great to see how much women’s rights have changed and also work that still
needs to be done.”
