Who can believe that we're almost at half-term?
We've had so much fun in Autumn 1, learning about how World War 2 impacted our local area. Do you know about the AVRO and what it was used for during the war? Can you explain why it was such an important target for enemy bombers and why it was never discovered?
We've also enjoyed amazing investigations in Science as we explore how we see and how light travels. We're all improving in our Science skills, especially in how we present and organise our findings.
All of Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed researching, designing, creating and testing Anderson shelters in DT. Next week we will be testing them out! Will they survive a bombing raid (weight), bomb blast (fan) and the weather (water)?
Please remember to ask us about our wonderful designs for new Apps in Computing. We shall be presenting our designs, Dragon's Den style, to see which design is voted the best original idea.
What a great half term! Enjoy the holiday!
Keep calm and carry on!
In Autumn 1 our topic will be about World War 2, a real favourite within school – it is linked to a local history study where we will learn about how the industrial estate at Yeadon Airport was used to build Lancaster bombers; how Thwaite Mills made putty to help with the war effort and the visit of Winston Churchill to Leeds. We will make air-raid shelters in DT and we will be learning about light in our Science topic linked to the blackout. In Music we will learn WW2 songs and link this to remembrance in November.
