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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
On the 23rd January 2019, Y6 visited the Imperial War Museum. We went there to learn more about the World Wars.
The museum showcases the experiences of modern conflict. We got to explore the the causes of war and its impact on people’s lives. We also had the opportunity to travel through the trenches and view different war vehicles.
