The Woeful World Wars
Evacuation to Ihgtham Mote:
On 31st October Rowan Class was evacuated to Ihgtham Mote where we were immersed into the reality of WWII. Activities included a tour of the house, incendiary bomb and fire warden training, make do and mend classes, blackout, various chores and the dreaded weekly laundry!
Throughout term 2 we have been studding a range of different texts covering both world wars: Warhorse, War time poetry, a variety of non-fiction texts, Goodnight Mister Tom, Rose Blanche and Anne Frank’s Diary.
This term we have been working on calculation, fractions, decimals and percentages. We are also building our successful yoga/mental maths project.
Year 6 have enjoyed several Science Days this term where we have been developing our scientific enquiry and investigation skills.
