6D Autumn term class highlights
World War 2 Day
On Friday 1st December, Year 6 took part in their annual History day. This term, we have been learning about the impact of World War II and considering the question: What was life like for evacuees during WW2?
The children did a fantastic job of dressing us as soldiers and evacuee children, making their own identity tags and gas mask boxes! During the day, the children learnt about The Battle of Britain, D-Day and VE Day. The children created art-inspired water colour paintings, silhouette landscapes. After break, we made celebratory VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) bunting. In the afternoon, Mrs Stoughton taught us all how to do the jive – which was great fun! A memorable day was had by all and it was important to consider how life was like over 70 years ago.
“I loved dressing up as a soldier – I was told I looked really dashing!” – Alex
“I think it is really important to learn and remember how the evacuees must have felt at such a terrifying time!” – Holly.
“I really enjoyed the art sessions and being able to experiment with a range of mediums!” – Kalina.
Fossil making fun!
Linking to our whole school topic of Going Underground and our science topic of Evolution and Inheritance, Year 6 had the opportunity to create their own fossils! The children drew the outline of a fossil they wanted to create onto card. Next, they went around the outline with art wire and taped this to the card. Then, the children added layers of tissue paper to the card. Finally, the children used chalk pastels to go over their design, which you can see below!
“I loved using the chalk pastels and art wire – I learnt a new skill!” – Shai.
“It was fun to link our understanding of fossils to art.” – Ilias.
“I found the lesson challenging – but I do love a challenge!” – Claudia.
