This week we did a circle time about internet safety as part of Safer Internet Week. We discussed how it is important to feel free to express yourself when using the internet. As well as discussing our freedoms, we discussed how it is important to be kind to others even when we are using a hidden identity or even if we are hidden behind a screen! It is important to always be respectful and safe online.

This picture shows our thoughts about how we are ‘free to be…’ online. The other picture shows us playing a game to improve our listening skills!

WW2 visit from The History Guy!

Today was the most exciting and interesting day! The History Guy brought in fascinating arefacts from World War Two for Year 6 to explore. We also took part in fun activities such as creating our own Morse Code machines using circuits!

Here are some photos of the day!

The Heart

This week, Year 6 learnt about the circulatory system. We used special virtual reality (VR) headsets to take a closer look at the inner workings of the heart. It was very exciting!

Comment on the blog to explain your understanding of how the heart works. You need to include these key words ‘vein’, ‘artery’, ‘ventricle’, ‘away’, ‘in’, ‘one direction’, ‘oxygenated’, ‘deoxygenated’.

Foil Sculptures

As part of our ‘Olympics’ topic, Year 6 sketched designs of Olympic athletes. We thought carefully about the proportion of body parts e.g how large a head is compared to the torso. Following this lesson, we created foil sculptures of athletes. Can you tell what sort of athlete the children sculpted in these photos?

Circle Time

Aman received our first ever ‘Magic Carpet’ moment during circle time this week. We all discussed our favourite things about Aman such as his kindness, fun personality and his ‘positive’ energy’. Comment on the post to say what your favourite part of circle time was.

Trip to RAF Cosford

Year 6 visited RAF Cosford this week. It was a fascinating trip and we looked at many planes that would have been used during WW2. During the ‘Spirit of the Blitz’ workshop, we learnt about how it felt to live in Britain during WW2.

Please enjoy our pictures below and comment on the blog 6EA to answer these questions:

Were people able to eat whatever they wanted during WW2?

Where did people shelter during air raids? What were the different names for these shelters and describe how they worked.

How did people know if an air raid was about to happen?

What precaution did people take during an air raid?
