Monday 30th January - Friday 3rd February
This week children were talking about their aspirations and what they aspire to be when they are older. They had a unique opportunity to listen to three wonderful people talk all about their careers from an inspiring business owner who creates amazing and jaw-dropping cakes, a cinematic animation director who has worked on Lego Video Games and a sports rehabilitation therapist who currently works with the England Amputee Football Team. It has been an amazing week!
We also had Pop Project come in and perform a series of songs all about believing in yourself and your aspirations. Finally, pupils had the opportunity to learn how to convert fractions to decimals playing an interactive game on the iPads - children were really engaged and raced to 'splat' the correct fruit!
Monday 23rd January - Friday 27th January
In History this week, we were looking at a variety of different events that occurred during the beginning, middle and end of World War II. Pupils had to consider which events they thought were the most 'significant' including the impact they had on the war. They chose three of the most significant and then presented them in a range of different ways.
In English this week, pupils were writing their own persuasive speech to convince people not to read the 'book of immortality'. They had an opportunity to come up to the front of the class and present their speeches.
This week we were joined by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
They came to talk to year 6 about fire safety.
We have continued learning about WWII in History. Below are some examples of the fantastic propaganda posters that we made.
This week we explored the changing roles of women before, during and after the war.
