Remembrance Topic

To begin our new topic on Remembrance, year 6 each made a clay poppy and then painted it. We looked at the importance of the symbol of the poppy and why it is used to remember those who have fallen during conflict.

We wrote Haikus to remember those who have died, remembering especially the First World War.

We have also made our own Remembrance stained glass windows inspired by events of World War One and the images associated with Remembrance.

During our topic session, we have used our maths skills to build a body density map of The Battle of The Somme.

We used Diennes blocks to show the fatalities in each area of the battlefield. We then used our inference skills to think of reasons for the range of deaths across the area.

We have created a timeline of the events of World War One, as well as learning about the causes of the fighting.

Maths

During maths lessons, we have begun to focus on multiplication and began by learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers.
