Y6 Building Resilience Against Violent Extremism (BRAVE) workshop

On Monday 20th January , the children in Year 6 were given a free workshop by St. Giles Trust,

The workshop  focused on preventing gang exploitation,  by both dispelling the myths which glamorise gang life and crime, whilst also exposing the serious exploitative and grooming tactics that take place in order to get young people to join gangs and commit crime.

The children found the workshop very informative and came away with  real tools to prevent recruitment and exploitation.

Thank you St. Giles Trust. The trainer was  excellent and the children were engaged throughout.  A vital workshop for young children today.

Y6 at the Centre of the Cell

On Monday 25th November,  Y6 went on an fascinating trip to  Center of the Cell. Centre of the Cell is a science education centre based at Queen Mary University of London.  Here the children witnessed research scientists at work as they entered the centre.

During the session, children were able to visit the Pod  where they played interactive games to learn about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research.  These interactive games were enhanced by films projected onto the ceiling of the Pod which introduced the concepts of cell biology and medical research.

Y6 also took part in a separate interactive presentation about the heart and learnt the importance of being healthy.

They had a great time and learnt a lot of new facts.

Y6A Bow Arts Day

For our topic this half term ‘London in Danger’, we were very fortunate to work with Bow Arts.

Bow Arts takes world-class artists into schools across London to improve the learning experiences of children and young people.

The children in Y6 designed and created 3D models of buildings that would survive London if it were to be flooded.

Take a look at their designs and models.

WW2 at the Museum of London (Docklands)

On Wednesday 13th November, Year 6 visited the Museum of London Docklands as part of our learning about World War Two. We examined real objects and discovered what they were used for in WW2. We also explored the museum exhibits and learnt about the effect of the Blitz on the Docklands.

The workshop was extremely educational and the workshop leader was very informative. It was definitely worth it.

Concordia’s ‘Man in the Moon’ performance at St Paul’s Church

On Thursday 31st October, Y6 were very fortunate to take part in  and watch Concordia’s Man in the Moon Performance.  During the show, the Man in the Moon  introduced children to the beginnings of industry (the Stone Age), the discovery of oil  and to the invention of the world’s most wasteful material – plastic.

The children loved the show. They joined in with the songs that they had learnt in school with Concordia.

Thank you Concordia for a wonderful project.

 

Soanes Centre Y6

Children in Year 6 explored aquatic fauna and flora in a pond dipping session. They explored the adaptation of freshwater invertebrates to their natural habitat by examining pond animals using magnifying glasses and binocular microscopes. In addition, they used classification keys to identify the invertebrates. In school, they wrote instructions on how to pond dip.

It was a fantastic day.

Chessington World Of Adventures and Y6.

On Wednesday 22nd May, Year 6 had the best time on their end-of-year trip to Chessington World Of Adventures. It was amazing! The weather was perfect; the rides were stomach-churning and the laughter was never-ending.  We did not want to leave, but unfortunately we had to.

On Thursday, we reminded ourselves of our adventure and wrote some pretty thrilling recounts of the Vampire Ride. What a treat for all the hard work this year!
