Year 6 - 2017 - 2018
Welcome to the Year 6 page! Here you will find lots of information on what Year 6 have been up to and what we are looking forward to!
Monday 18th December
Today we re-enacted the Christmas Truce from World War I, when England and Germany played football on Christmas Day. As well as playing a match, some of the soldiers gave each other haircuts and swapped chocolate and biscuits.
Afterwards, we had hot chocolate to warm us up!
"I thought it was exciting and enjoyable." Francis
"It was good because we got to understand how the soldiers felt and how they reacted to the situation." Charlotte
"It was really fun because we got to understand the scene." Ella
"I really enjoyed it because we got to have fun and learn about history at the same time." Sofia
"I thought it was fun because we got to play football and it helped me to understand what happened in World War I." Keenan

Monday 16.10.17 - Trip to Great Ormond Street Hospital and The British Museum
"On Monday we went to Great Ormond Street Hospital to learn C.P.R. I learnt how to use a defibrillator and how to help a choking child. My favourite part was saving a man whose heart stopped on a video game.
We also went to The British Museum to look at the ancient Greeks and Mexico. My favourite part was seeing the Greek artifacts." - Aston
"On Monday 16th October we went to Great Ormond Street Hospital and did C.P.R. activities. I was one of the three to do virtual reality. It was a mini-movie where we had to pick the right choices for the movie. We used C.P.R. on a cushion for the chest of a human. At the end of the day we got a goody bag." - Patrick
"On Monday 16th October we learnt C.P.R. It was my first time learning it. Now I know how to save someone's life." - Angela
"We went to Great Ormond Street Hospital and learnt how to do C.P.R. We also went to The British Museum. I enjoyed seeing all of the artwork and in the Ancient Greece section there were lots of vases!" - Ellie
"I learnt how to use a defibrillator on a person whose heart has stopped. We were also taught how to do C.P.R. I also learnt about the Mayans at The British Museum." - Kieran
The Declaration of Human Rights turns 70 this 10th of December 2017.
Let's stand up for equality, justice and human dignity.
On Wednesday, Year 6 participated in a Human Rights Day Workshop and were able to articulate really well what the meaning of human rights and their responsibilities were.
On Tuesday, 12th December we made Christmas hats followed by a delicious Christmas lunch. We also had auditions for the Talent Show which was held in the afternoon - a very busy day!
