The Vikings

In Autumn 2 we will be learning about The Vikings! We are excited to find out what made them such good warriors, where they came from and how they travelled to Britain. We will research what the Vikings ate and will have a Viking feast at the end of the topic which links

with our D.T. In Science, we will learn about animals and humans.

A super DT morning developing our chopping, grating and slicing skills whilst making pizzas for our Christmas party! 18.12.18

29.11.18 A very interesting afternoon at St John's church.

We loved our Viking Workshop led by Jorvick Viking Centre!

World War II

In Autumn 1 our topic was all about World War 2, a real favourite within school – it was linked to a local history study where we will learnt about how the industrial estate at Yeadon Airport was used to build Lancaster bombers; how Thwaite Mill made putty to help with the war effort and the visit of Winston Churchill to Leeds. We had great fun designing and making shelters in D.T. and learnt about light in our Science topic linked to the blackout. In Music we learnt WW2 songs and linked these to Remembrance in November.

To celebrate the end of our WW2 topic, we had a party similar to how people celebrated the end of the war in 1945. We had buns and juice, and played board games whilst listening to Vera Lynn!

"I enjoyed our VE day party - I liked doing the mindfulness colouring in sheets because it made me think about the people from WW2 whilst I was colouring. The juice and buns were yummy too! It was nice to spend time with my friends." Ella C 6M

Have a look at our completed shelters we made in DT. They had to withstand a 1kg weight, be waterproof and air resistant. We all worked really well in our teams!

"I enjoyed this DT topic because WW2 is an interesting subject, but when we did the tests, our Anderson Shelter did not survive the water test!"

Emma, 6M

"I thought my shelter was going to collapse when we carried out the different tests because we didn't think it was strong enough, but it was strong enough which made me happy!"

Matthew, 6M



In Science, we explored what colour light is. 10.10.18

"I enjoyed going outside and using the prism - I found out that when light is refracted, you can see the true colours of light and not just white."

Jay, 6M

"I have really enjoyed orienteering because I like reading maps!"

Harry, 6M


"I liked that you had to run around. There were lots of different races that we could do and I don't run as much out of school so this was good fun for me."

Annabelle, 6M

We are enjoying constructing our WW2 Shelters in DT! 11.10.18

"It was a lot of fun because we got to use a lot of equipment that we don't normally use - like glue guns and saws!"

Jake, 6M

"I really enjoyed the whole day - I liked learning about the different coins and the rations because it was very interesting to find out how much food they had in a week and what coins they used to buy it."

Libby, 6M

We had fun trying to put up tents for our shelter topic in DT!
