Since the last time we made bread and soup, we’ve decided on our preferences and a few extras. IMG_4276 Take a look…
This half term, we are learning about evolution. Today, learnt about how animals have evolved to bare the strongest characteristics. Unfortunately, one animals is rapidly becoming extinct!
Year 6 have learnt about Refugees and experienced a glimpse of the pressure that the decision-making, or lack thereof, brings.
War broke out in our country so we had to decide what essential items we wanted to carry. We wouldn’t be able to carry it all. The truck arrived before some of us managed to gather our belongings. It was too late! We couldn’t return for them.
The journey was horrific! A few of us lost our belongings because the truck driver was hurrying to safety. Amongst us, we decided that we ought to share with those who lost their belongings – so we did. The journey… some bruised. Some bled. Some just cried. It was overwhelming.
Whilst we were travelling up a steep mountain, the truck broke down. We had to walk the rest of the journey. Our bags were too heavy. So yet again, we had to lose another item…
Having recently learnt about The Circulatory System, we have been investigating what happens to our heart when exercising and thereafter.
Today, Year 5 and 6 listened to the account of a real-life WWII evacuee. We then asked questions and gathered primary evidence.
Thank you Mr Hewetts for taking time out and sharing your experience with us.
It was really nice communicating with each other, effectively. We learned about what makes us feel upset or causes us stress. We have been helping each other to solve problems.
This week, the children led us to reflect upon how great God is. Understanding the story of The Tower of Babel, we learnt of how seeking to make a name for ourselves is not always acceptable in the sight of God. In RE, we have learnt about Cain and Abel whose story corroborate this point.
What a fabulous time we had at Whitemoor Lakes! Year 6 conquered their fears and showed immense compassion and encouragement to each other. It was a wonderful experience.
What a phenomenal immersion day years 5 and 6 have had! We are currently reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and in History we are learning about World War II. Harry from Portals to the Past taught us about the countries which Germany invaded. We also learnt about various occurrences.
Look at the pictures and let us know what you learn.
