SPRING TERM

 

It has been a busy term in Year 6.  Our visit to the Commandry in Worcester was a great success.  The children have been studying the Civil War as part of their history lessons.  The workshops provided by the Commandry staff were excellent. The children  were able to experience life in 1657 in Worcester, visit the battle site at Fort Royal Hill, dress up in period costume, load a cannon and visit the surgeons tent on the battle field.

 

In Music we have had great fun with the Cup Song which they learnt to sing as a team and performed in assembly to the whole school.

 

There have been lots of sporting opportunities.  Four children were picked to compete in the lotteryy funded County Cross Country race in the Wyre Forest.  We were delighted when our representatives finished 11th and 28th.  We have also been involved in both Tag Rugby and Football competitions.

AUTUMN TERM

 

We have started our WW2 topic focusing on the work on the home front and how the war affected the lives of people including identity cards. rationing and evacuees. We have also studied the art work of Henry Moore.

Having thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the life and experiences of those that lived during the war the children held a WW2 coffee morning to show case some of their work. Our headboy and headgirl put to together a presentation. We were entertained with traditional songs, Lindy hop demonstrations and some amazing war poems written by the children.  Thank you to all who were able to attend and helped to raise £140 for the Royal British Legion.

Everybody got a chance to cook some WW2 recipes and were surprised how good everything tasted despite the strange ingredients which were used due to rationing. There were eggless sponges, carrot cookies and potato scones.

OUR TRIP TO FRANCE 

 

Year 6 had a fantastic time in France. Their behaviour was outstanding, they were real ambassadors for the school. Once in France the busy itinerary started with a visit to the French market town of Brie-comte-Robert. They completed a town trail in the morning visiting typical French shops such as the boulangerie and the afternoon visited a chocolate factory. On Wednesday they enjoyed a full day in Paris, with a boat trip on the Seine, scenic views from the Eiffel Tower and a coach ride around the capital to see some of the major landmarks. Great fun was had on Thursday at Disney Land. On the way home they stopped at the WW1 Canadian Memorial with a particularly poignant moment when one pupil was able to place a poppy in remembrance of members of his family who had died during the conflict. There were also trenches to explore and views across the bomb cratered landscape. A huge thank you to all the staff who volunteered to go to France with out whom the trip could not have taken place.
