Remembrance & WW1
To begin our new topic on Remembrance and World War 1, year 6 have created their own clay tiles. We have researched the importance of the symbol of a poppy to remember those who fought in the First World War.
We also created stained glass windows of poppies and have displayed these in our classrooms.
Battle of the Somme
We completed our work focusing on the Battle of the Somme by using body density maps. We used Diennes blocks and an original body density map to find out the areas of the battlefield where the most fatalities occurred.
WW1 Home Learning
Look at our fantastic home learning, we have created models of trenches:
Poppy Wreath Laid In Remembrance
To commemorate Armistice Day, year 6 visited the War Memorial in Dover to lay two poppy wreaths which we made in school. We observed the minutes silence alongside local police officers and town council workers.
We have been investigating creating different circuits using electrical equipment. We have drawn circuit diagrams and predicted whether a circuit will work or not.
We have completed an investigation looking at how the brightness of a lightbulb changes dependent on the number of bulbs in the circuit.
