Well done to Year 6 for a fantastic half term of learning! This week in English, we finished and published our information piece presentations all about the British Empire. We are so impressed by the amount of information and detail the children have put into their writing – they look amazing!
We had our school trip on Monday to the Corn Exchange in Cambridge city centre, where we had a wonderful, informative poetry workshop with Michael Rosen.
In STEM, we carried out an experiment where we examined the impact of health and diet on the circulatory system and blood vessels. We used different sized tubing and red-coloured water to compare how long it takes for blood to travel through different sized blood vessels.
On Wednesday, we had a visit from Bigfoot Arts Education theatre company, who performed their play, ‘All Abroad the Windrush!’. This connected this year’s learning on Empire to the children’s project learning last year about the Windrush, as well as Black History Month this October. It was a brilliant show!
Well done to the children who took part in the football match on Tuesday – they won 10-0!
