This week we have been thinking about what it might be like to be a child at school during the outbreak of WW2. We have been writing diary entries about our days. Today Miss Wilson brought in a gas mask for the children to try out, it was very uncomfortable to wear and difficult to breathe in!

We had a brilliant visit to the Imperial War Museum North last week. We found out lots about the Blitz and the effect of war on different people's lives. We especially enjoyed the BIG PICTURE SHOW which was projected on the large walls of the museum and told real people's stories and memories from the Second World War- our new topic this term. It was really special as we commemorated Remembrance Sunday last week when we remember soldiers who have fought in all wars.

Today was exciting as we went back in time to September 3rd 1939 to the day World War Two began. We all enjoyed being in role and taking part in a school day with our war names and meeting our war teachers... Miss Gilbertson and Miss Wilson. We were just taking part in our school dance when the siren went...then it was straight back to our rooms to gather around the "wireless" and listen to Neville Chamberlain's speech.Over the next few weeks we will be researching how war began and what life was like for people during the Blitz. Click here to find out more and click the picture below to hear Neville Chamberlain's speech.

We have had lots of fun exploring nature and creating art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. We have also worked alongside Mrs Mccaffer to use printing techniques that are inspired by nature -just like Andy. Take a look at our awesome work below.

On Monday, Year 6 had a thrilling and wet day out at Scotsman Flash. As part of our Golden Week celebrations for all our hard work this year we headed off to Wigan for a day of kayaking, canoeing and rafting! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we even managed to coax Miss Coulson into the water! WATER DAY OUT!!

We have done a lot of fun thing this year but today was a really fabulous day out. We visited Blackpool Zoo as part of our science topic: "Evolution and Adaptation." Daniel said it was, "The best day ever!" We even managed to dodge the rain as we hung out with the monkeys, giraffes and lions and penguins. Have a look at our video to see how much fun we had.

Today we scared ourselves silly sharing our Haunted House stories!
"I loved the brilliant description in Paige's story- I could really imagine the scary house from all her similes and metaphors." Aminat
"Saina's story was really scary and spooky, I could really see feel how scared her character's were." Lora
"Fantastic vocabulary in Brandon's story." Thomas
I really liked the way Aminat didn't give the ending away- it was really dramatic... and SCARY! Nahara
"Ryan used brillant vocabulary to create a spooky atmosphere." Thomas
"Thomas and Daim had brilliant description mixed in with dialogue and action." Paige
"Daim's character's jumped off the page" Brandon

After all our hard work for our Sats we have had a chance to relax a little and have some fun! We played games, hung out and did some sketching outside! Well deserved Year 6!!!

AFTER SATS FUN!
We set the year 6 children a series of maths challenges. They needed to solve the maths clues in teams that were hidden around the room. The clues led them to a 10 digit code that would enable them to escape the room! Thankfully some teams managed this before breaktime! Yikes! Well done Violet, Enoch and Ellie.
Lots of fun - well done Year 6!

We have been using our knowledge of circuits to create useful equipment that Anne Frank could have used to protect her diary during WW2.
Can you work out what she might have used these boxes for?

In Year 6 we have been looking at electricity. We challenged ourselves to work out why a bulb was/wasn't lighting up in a circuit.
Can you see what we needed to do?

Today there was a bustling ration queue as the children of Year 6 attempted to collect their meagre rations to make their wartime shortbread. They have this evening to use the limited amounts of flour, butter and sugar to ollow the wartime recipe they have been given. Good luck Year 6! The Bake off competition winners will be announced tomorrow!

As part of science week we investigated circuits as part of our electricity topic. We worked out how the brightness of the bulb changed by increasing the amount of bulbs and batteries in the circuit…
“First we made a simple circuit and then we added another bulb and I noticed that bulbs became dimmer. When we added two batteries and one bulb, the light was much brighter. “

We really enjoyed sorting shapes today into Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams. We used properties of shapes to help us to classify them, including parallelograms and perpendicular lines. Why not practise at home?

Following on from today’s lesson, use this game to help you practise recognising prime numbers
Remember to scroll through to find the prime number option.
Plus, bring 3 examples to prove that this trick works. Remember, you can use short division to divide by 12.
The Prime Number Trick
Using prime numbers, you can amaze your friends with a prime prediction…
- Ask your friends to pick any prime number bigger than 5, but they must not tell you what it is.
- Square it. (In other words multiply the prime number by itself.)
- Add 17
- Divide by 12
Without knowing which prime number your friends picked, you can still tell them: There will be a remainder of 6
