Year 6 - Autumn Term One
What a fantastic start Year 6 have made! Since the beginning of September, we have been learning about World War Two and how it affected the people of Britain. We have produced some excellent writing around this subject, including newspaper articles, informative reports and diary extracts.
We have been fascinated by the story of Goodnight Mister Tom which has inspired us to produce emotive and imaginative writing.
During literacy lessons, we have researched the area of rationing during the war and used this to write interesting non-chronological reports.
In maths, we used our predicting and weighing skills to weigh a number of foods that were rationed during World War II. We wanted to understand and appreciate how difficult it was for people during this time. It surprised us how little food people survived on each week.
We have been impressed by the high-quality home learning this term. It is obvious the children have been inspired by this topic!
During a visit to the Lifewise Centre at Hellaby, we participated in Crucial Crew workshops in order to learn how to keep safe in our homes and communities. Here, we took part in a number of informative scenarios involving fire safety, first aid and road safety.
We have been lucky enough to visit Eden Camp which used to be a real prisoner of war camp in WWII. Along with having fun, we discovered so much more about the social and military history of this period.
