Pop Up Cafe

Preparations are well underway for our Pop Up Cafe.

See the gallery below to find out what we have been up to. 

 

RE - What are we committed to? 

This week in RE we have been thinking about commitment. The children joined in some interesting group discussions about their most important commitments. 

DT - Making flowers

This week we have been analysing different materials for our flowers project. We have considered the positive and negative aspects of different materials before creating our designs. 

Food Technology

This half term we have been working with Mrs Tatham making pizzas. We have been learning lots of the skills we will need for our project after half term.

More information about the pop up cafe and shop to follow after half term! 

There are more photos in the gallery below. 

 

Hearing Dogs

Last week, 6S were lucky enough to have a visit from the charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. They talked to us about what the charity does and being deaf aware.

We were also introduced to some of the amazing hearing dogs - Abney and Noodle. Noodle is in training to work with a deaf person in a school. 

The Manchester Blitz 

In history, we are learning about the impact of the Blitz in Manchester.

We used different sources and considered our own historical questions.

 

Art Sculptures

In art we have been learning about movement and exploring different ways movement can be captured in art. We have been looking at the work of Auguste Rodin and we have made sculptures inspired by his work. 

There are more photos in the gallery below.

Watch this space for the finished sculptures! 

 

Christmas Chocolate Logs

We have had a great afternoon making our Christmas chocolate logs. They are all packaged up and ready to go. Hope you enjoy them...ho, ho, ho!

Lacrosse

We enjoyed our final lacrosse session before Christmas. We played some team building games, practised our skills and played some mini games. 

 

We've made lots of progress with our skills. 

 

Fantastic Fairgrounds!

In DT this term, we have been learning about different mechanisms in fairground rides. Just look at the effort and determination that went into creating our final models. Great resilience and problem solving skills 6S - well done!

RE - Visit to the Buddhist Temple

As part of our learning in RE we visited the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple. We learnt lots about the different shrines and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

PE - Lacrosse

We are lucky to be working with a lacrosse coach in PE this half term. We are developing the skills we learnt in year 5.

History  - World War II

This week we have been learning about life on the Home Front during WWII and how everyone worked together to cope with the German threat. 

 

We researched different areas and then taught each other. 

 

 

 

 

 

Maths - This week we have been analysing and investigating with measurements.

History - What evacuation was really like.

We looked at photographs and used inference to offer ideas of what was actually happening. Then, we conducted a role play where the children were given evacuee identities and spoke to each other about their experiences:

 

To finish the activity, they were asked to order themselves with the graded information that they had as to which evacuee had a horrible, difficult evacuation to those who had a wonderful, happy experience:

 

 

In PE this half term we are working with Total Gymnastics to develop our skills. More photos in the gallery below. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In maths we have been practising our times tables.

We know how important they are in lots of areas of maths! 

 

Our history topic this half term is all about World War II. This week we have been finding out why Britain went to war in 1939. The children researched reasons for and against appeasement and held their own debate. More photos in the gallery below.
