We started the week with some art. We revised our colour mixing skills and created blackout scenes with chalk and our own stencil designs. 

At the start of our art lesson this week we all sketched a WW2 plane. The kids did an amazing job! 

We had an amazing time at Tenterden being evacuated to Wales. Everyone got into character and we enjoyed meeting Viv the Spiv! 

We were invited to School at Sommerhill to meet the author Annalise Gray. She told us all about the inspiration for her series of books based in Ancient Rome and the Circus Maximus.  

we started our new science unit: light! 
Our first investigation was to prove light travelled in straight lines.

In science this week we continue to learnt about how we see things with light travelling to a source, then an object and finally being reflected in to our eyes so we can see. The children has to model this using a torch, mirror, string and a cuddly toy. 

Our PE with Mrs Pain this term is cheerleading. We have practised different moves, and put them together to the best of the music and included stunts and lifts. 

This week, for anti-bullying day, we made some socks to show how everyone is different in their own way.

Also, we made some poems about remembrance. Some poems were even shown to Mrs Farr because of how good they were. 

To complete our work on World War Two, we designed and made shelters. Here is our finished products. 

Our PE in term 3 has been gymnastics. We had a gym coach teach the skills and they we put them together into a routine which we performed to the class. Great job Year 6. 

In our art in term 3 we used water colours to paint plants, flowers, insets and birds from the rainforest. We then used these to create ‘rainforest boxes’ in the style of Joseph Cornell. 

As part of children’s mental health week, Year 6 thought about accepting differences and made ‘all about me posters’. 

In term 4 we have been learning about the heart and circulatory system. We made a model to help understand how the heart pumps. 

Year 6 running their toy sale to raise money for comic relief

We have been studying David Hockney. After experimenting with different media and creating  their own drawings of the Kent countryside the children worked in a group to upscale one landscape.
