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.
On Wednesday 14th 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. We had a fantastic time.
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.
