Here in Year 6 we are keeping the memories alive of those who have lost their lives to war. We used chalk pastels and oil pastels to draw poppies using various techniques. We are also currently creating our own poppies with a multitude of materials – pictures to follow so check back soon!
For our WWII topic, we went on a class trip to Bewdley Museum where they keep various artifacts from WWII. We were able to handle some artifacts, go down into an air-raid shelter and play with some toys from the 1940s! Not only did we learn many new things on our visit, we taught…
We had a Bollywood dance instructor come to Perryfields to teach us some Bollywood dance moves! We all took part and really enjoyed this activity!
Today we had various agencies join us for the day to discuss keeping ourselves safe! Miss Clulow learned a lot from PC Treasure!
In our science lesson we worked in groups to test whether a material was a conductor or an insulator. We did this by making a simple circuit and adding particular materials to the circuit to see if the bulb would light up or not.
In Class 6 we have been making clay monsters – some of them were convinced that they were re-creating Mrs Bates and Miss Clulow’s gorgeous faces!
Today in forest school, we worked in teams to build a shelter using waterproof sheets, string and natural resources such as sticks, leaves, stones, logs and mud! We used our values: collaboration, responsibility, patience and perseverance.
