On Wednesday, 5th June 2019, Year 6 visited the Houses of Parliament. We had a chance to see the Westminster Hall, Central Lobby, the Lords Chamber in the House of Lords and the Commons Chamber in the House of Commons. We learnt about the history of the building and how the country is being governed. Since it was a sunny day, we finished our trip playing in the park nearby.
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 Monday 11th March, Narconon Drug Prevention & Education visited our school to work with our Year 6 children in a workshop related to drug awareness.
Narconon Drug Prevention and Education, have been delivering “The Truth About Drugs” sessions for primary and secondary schools in the UK since 1986.
Their 1-hour workshop was informative, effective and delivered with an acceptance level for the children to understand.
Art Day in Year 6 was all about our topic ‘Codebreakers’. We started with practicing some drawing techniques that can help us create intricate and repetitive patterns. After that, we explored photographs of various historical coding machines (for example the Enigma machine). Inspired by the codebreaking history, we created our own individual collages. Finally, we worked in groups and designed and made original coding machines with different functions. When we finished, we presented our work to the rest of the class. Thank you Bow Arts for a creative and engaging day!
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.
We’ve had a fantastic first day with activities such as abseiling and the mini Olympics. We are all back in rooms getting ready for our first night’s sleep.
Children having a fantastic time with all the fun activities.
