November 2021

What a busy month November has been! It all started as we returned to school from half term to a firework safety assembly by the Lancashire Fire Service. They taught us all about how to behave around fireworks and how to act and behave in certain situations. Then we were treated to a virtual visit from the author Yassmin Abdel-Magied. She told us all about how she became an author and even gave us some tips on how to make our writing the best that it can be.

           Remembrance Day was also celebrated across school this month and allowed us to remember and pay respect to those that fought for us and gave their lives for us. We even teamed up with Year Two and took a walk to the Moor Park Memorial Gardens to lay a homemade wreath and pay our respects.

           Next came Anti-Bullying Week and the theme this year was ‘One Kind Word’. We spent the week looking at how we are able to prevent bullying and how our words can make people feel. We even took part in a live lesson with the BBC and CBBC.

           Towards the end of the month, we visited our local Synagogue to see how Jews worship and to compare the differences (and similarities) in their place of worship to other religious places of worship that we have previously visited and studied.

           We ended November with our Topic theme day where we all came dressed as WW2 evacuees or as other significant individuals from the WW2 period. We had a fantastic day and it really brought our topic alive! December incoming…

October 2021

During October, Year Six have been busy learning all about WW2 during our Topic lessons. We spent time looking at the different countries (and their locations) involved in WW2. Then, we created fact-files on each of the countries leaders. This month also marked #NationalLibrariesWeek where we were able to celebrate all things reading and even look at some of the wonderful new books and authors out there on offer.

           Within our Science lessons, we continued to learn all about electricity. We managed to design our own series and parallel circuits before carrying out a number of tests and investigations.

           Finally, Halloween arrived! We were so excited in Year Six for the disco! It was such an amazing night! We were also given the opportunity to design and carve a pumpkin for the Morrisons Community Pumpkin Competition. Do you like our final entry/ design?

September 2021

WOW! What a busy month it has been here in Year Six. The year started off with us all preparing our Head Boy/ Head Girl speeches and campaigns to perform for the rest of the school. We all wanted it so badly, but there could only be four winners. Congratulations to the elected candidates. We cannot wait to work with you and hear all of your ideas for our school over the coming year.  Shortly after this, we hit the ground running with our first community project (Harvest). This year we collected food for the Blackpool Food Bank. We even hosted our first whole-school class assembly in two years! Within our lessons, we have been busy learning all about the outbreak of World War 2 and the countries involved. This half term we have also been learning all about the work, style and technique of the artist L.S. Lowry within Art. We all loved learning how to  draw ‘People in Motion’.
