This week we have completed a Mock SATs paper for reading, writing and maths. We have all tried our best to show what we have learned so far this term.
We have also started our rehearsal for the KS2 Christmas Performance. We are learning lots of new songs and beginning to feel very Christmassy already!
We also have produced a project in groups based on planning a Christmas party. We looked at menus, decorations, invitations and planned to a budget. We will send this project to our link school in El Pins and City Road to share how we celebrate Christmas.

This week we visited the Safeside centre which is a facility that shares a range of scenarios or situations that we may face. The safeside team talked to us about the dangers and how we can keep ourselves safe. These included by dangers that may occur by a canal, travelling on buses and trains as well as how to contact the emergency services in a crisis situation. The police collected us and returned us to school and this contribution kept the cost of this trip low and for that we thank them.

This week we were excited to begin our new tppic: World War II. Our first lesson took us back in time to 1939 when an announcement was made that a war had begun. We were overwhelmed by the sound of the air raid siren and discussed how children would have felt.
We are looking forward to learning more about how the war affected the nation.

This week has been National Book Week. Year 6 celebrated this by sharing and learning about each other's favourite authors such as Roald Dahl. Sara regaled us with an amazing anecdote that Dahl only ever wrote in his shed on yellow paper!
We are very much looking forward to our cinema trip next week.

This week Year 6 have been learning about the artist Henri Julien Rousseau.
We have created a factfile about him identifying key events from his life. We couldn't believe, that despite being such a great artist, he had never had an art lesson.
We then created a pallet of green tones using paint. These were used to create our own Rousseau inspired paintings.
