Currently we aren’t taking our pupils on visits out of school. We still want our children to have experiences out of the classroom in order to bring their topics alive. Our Y2s were lucky enough to have Florence Nightingale visit our school and talk about her life and her work in the Crimean War.
I love this project. I have really enjoyed seeing the models come into school each morning. You are all very creative and imaginative. Well done.
We are so lucky to have the historic Manor Lodge Tudor site on our doorstep. It is steeped in history.
Yesterday, we visited Manor Lodge as part of our Tudor topic. It was such a fun day, exploring the grounds and taking part in different Tudor themed activities. We loved meeting Bess of Hardwick (Countess of Shrewsbury) and we enjoyed dressing up in different Tudor clothing.
What a great day!
Here is one of our Y3 Blog entries about the work they did on Black History Month, Nelson Mandela and apartheid. I set the Y3s a challenge to find our what significance my key ring souvenir has. I bought it in Cape Town. The key ring simply says “466/64”.
This week we have been learning about Nelson Mandela for black history month. We have completed a fact file about him using the iPads and we have had lots of discussions about apartheid, race and diversity. Mrs Weet has been really impressed with our mature ideas!
As we reach the end of our World War Two topic, and knowing that war was over, year 6 celebrated today by having their own VE Day ‘street’ party. We shared cakes and scones and had afternoon tea.
All the children have really enjoyed learning about significant events during the war and have all gained an understanding of what it must have been like and felt like to be living in Europe during this devastating time.
