17th October 2019
Over the past few weeks, we have been extremely busy, we covered so much in English and Maths and learnt loads about evacuees, rations and World War 2. To top it off, we have managed to squeeze in two educational trips.
Firstly we were lucky enough to visit the Science laboratories at AKS. The children had a number of scientific opportunities and challenges that included separating salt from rock salt and looking at the cell structure of an onion under a microscope.
We have also visited the The War Rooms in Liverpool. A fantastic trip, where we all learnt about the tactics and the people who masterminded the Battle of the Atlantic - key to the survival of our country during World War 2. As well as taking part in a code breaking workshop, the children toured the war rooms and offices. This proved to be an extraordinary opportunity to get hands-on with all the equipment and artefacts used and allow the children to immerse themselves in what it was like to work there during WW2.
Wonderful trips with wonderfully behaved children.
Have a lovely half term

A big welcome back to a new school year in Year 6!
The children have made a super start and have all settled in really well.
They have very much enjoyed the work we've done this week, focused on helping develop their perseverance and a growth
mindset - I hope they've shared the pen trick with you.
