Easter

Democracy have been busy with their Easter crafts. They began by making some origami tulips which were then attached to Easter cards. A very brave few then took on a very intricate and challenging build to create these wonderfully 3D tulips.

Battle of Britain

After researching about The Battle of Britain in our topic lessons, we designed our own non-chronological reports about the events of this conflict and have included pictures and images to add extra interest for the reader.

DT - Anderson Shelters

In our DT lessons, year 6 have been researching, designing, building and evaluating an Anderson Shelter. We looked up information about how these shelters were used and looked at different designs. We then designed our own Anderson Shelter and World War 2 garden. Once our designs were built, we evaluated them and thought about how we could improve them in the future.

World War 2

During our topic work, we have been learning about the Battle of Britain and the Blitz. We have created artwork showing cities during the Blitz bombing. We created silhouettes using black paper to show the skyline and then stuck them to our painted backgrounds.

Science Gliders

During our science lesson, we built models of Spitfires. We then had to complete a fair test to improve our aeroplane and make it fly as far as possible. Our furthest distance was 6m (nearly the length of our classroom!)

PSHE

During our PSHE sessions, we have been considering the importance of different values and beliefs. Year 6 were given different dilemmas which they needed to solve. Groups acted these out and gave their opinions on how best to solve the problem.

Let's Count

Year 6 have been taking part in Let’s Count activities. We have learnt about the census including how often it takes place and why it is important. We have examined data from the 2011 census related to the age groups of those living in Tower Hamlets, we then drew our own pie charts to show this information.

We collected primary data from our school, by counting the number of birds in our local area. We used this data to create bar charts showing our results. The most frequently seen bird was a seagull!

Spring Display

For our Spring displays in school, year 6 were asked to draw a picture of Spring, we discussed the new beginnings which spring can bring, as well as lighter evenings and warmer weather. We also talked about the importance of open-mindedness when looking forward to new starts and beginnings.
