We've been inspired by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and have had a go creating our own designs using the the styles they created.

Hope you are as impressed as Mr Crick and Mrs Llewellyn were!

Morris Lessmore loved words. He loved books.

Year 6 have loved studying this beautiful picture book and using it as an inspiration for some excellent written work - descriptions, diary entries, book 'blurbs', poems and changes of narrative viewpoint.

One of the most popular units of work remains our study of World War two and in particular the experience of war from a child's perspective.

We look at Evacuation, The Blitz, Rationing, The Battle of Britain as well as linking it to Geography and map work skills, Art when studying Propaganda posters and Literacy when writing biographies or Non-Chronological reports.

As part of our D.T, we looked at making our own World War 2 air raid shelters. This involved investigating various joints, materials and structures to ensure the shelters were built as strong as possible.

 BREAKING NEWS!

 Over the past few weeks, sighting of flying objects have been seen throughout the U.K

During February half term, something fell from the sky landed in St Johns nature area. We sent Year 6 to investigate!

First, they went to the scene to look for evidence so they could try and determine what it could be. Then, to follow protocol, they had to notify the Ministry of Defence of what they have found. Next, what goes with all good investigations and stories? A news broadcast!

 

After a thorough investigation, we had to describe in detail what we had found and how we came to find it. This included drawing a picture of what we believed it looked like and give a descriptive description of what it looked like and how it may have moved and behaved.

 

The children did a great job in doing this! What great detectives they are!
