A love for learning - what have year 6 been up to this week?
The children had an amazing time during their trip to Ackers Adventure. They took part in rock climbing, skiing, tobogganing and bell-boating on the canal. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking risks and learning new skills. We admire their courage and perseverance!
Year 6 started their History topic this week by ordering eras on a timeline. They used their deduction skills to find out about life in Victorian Britain by exploring paintings from the Victorian time period.
We have been exploring light and dark tones and practising how to create sketches that appear 3D.

We had the pleasure of inviting into school visitors for our Victorian workshop. Year 6 explored toys from the era, as well as experiencing what school would have been like for children.

This week in Spanish, year 6 took on the roles of a shopkeeper and customers, asking for and sharing prices of items of clothing. In previous weeks, we have learnt to describe clothes, recapped on colours and numbers and focused on our pronunciation of Spanish words.
