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.
Year 6 had the best time on their end-of-year trip to Chessington World Of Adventures Resort. The sun was shining, the rides were stomach-churning and the laughter was never-ending. Next day, we also wrote some pretty thrilling recounts of the Vampire Ride. What a treat for all the hard work this year! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
For World of Work week, Year 6 had a visit from a Management Consultant and a Pharmacist. They both gave us an insight about their profession and how they manage their workload. They spoke about the challenges they faced and how they persevered. The children took part in a small activity to match the name of the medicine to its function. They asked relevant questions to find out more information about our visitors and their job roles.
Year 6 attended a workshop in Pizza Express. We learnt about the origins and the ingredients of Pizza Margherita and then turned into pizzaiolos and prepared our very own, delicious pizzas! On our way home, we stopped at Brick Lane to admire the lamp posts that we helped to design earlier this year. What a fantastic trip!
