January 2020

So far this term, Year 6 have been busy exploring the


They have been fascinated by the inner works of the human heart and how the blood is transported around the body.  Their curiosity has been driven even further by some brilliant experiments.  We began by creating blood using a range of different materials in order to understand what is actually in our blood.  We also dissected pig heart's, looking carefully at the different chambers and the features of the heart.  It was disgusting yet fasinating!!

WW2 Memory Cafe

To end our Autumn Term topic, on Friday 17th January, the children took part in a Memory Cafe. We invited people from the local area to share their knowledge, expertise and personal experiences of the war with the children. In return, Year 6 shared some of the songs and dances from the WW2 era that they have been practising. 

The children enjoyed looking at the artifacts and asked some brilliant questions about their local area during the war. 

We even enjoyed tea and cake with our special guests!

Year 6 India topic! Spring term. 

To launch our new topic this term, we spent the afternoon exploring the Indian culture. We learnt lots of key information that we are going to build on over the term. Did you know the national animal of India is the tiger and the national flower is the lotus? 

We spent the afternoon looking at different Mendhi patterns (a decorative design created on a person's body using a paste made from the henna plant). We used to designs to inspire our own and then used henna to bring them to life. 

We also followed instructions on how to put on a Sari ( a traditional women's garment). It was harder than it looks!

We are really looking forward to all the Art, DT, History and Geography we will be learning around this topic. 







The Year 6  WW2 'Dig for Victory!'

As part of our World War 2 topic, Year 6 have been learning about the impact the war had on people's lives. We have looked at the important role rationing had in ensuring that food and clothes were distributed fairly. 

We have also been learning about the 'Dig For Victory' campaign that encouraged people to use land wisely by growing as many vegetables as they could. As part of this, we planted our own vegetables in our garden area - we are looking forward to seeing how well our lettuce, red kale and pak choi grow so we can turn them into a delicious WW2 recipe! Watch this space!


Year 6  have had a GREAT start to our learning this week! We  launched our  World War Two topic with an ‘Evacuation Day.’ We listened to 'Neville Chamberlain’s Declaration of War Speech' and spent the morning getting ready to be evacuated. We made name placards, jam sandwiches for the long train journey and packed our suitcases with items recommended by the government. We even got to try on a gas mask, bought in by Alisa Adlem, to help us understand how it must have felt having to wear them in school!

During our long train journey, we learnt how to play Beetle Drive, a popular WW2 game for children.

We wrote letters and postcards home to our families telling them all about our evacuation experiences.

Year 6 are really excited about their upcoming WW2 learning this term

Year 6 had the most amazing time at Butlins for our residential. We took part in some brilliant activities where we learnt new skills and had so much fun! What a brilliant way to end our Year at Pinhoe
