This Friday, Year 6 gathered at the cenotaph in Crook Town to remember those who have lost their lives while fighting for our country. The children recited a special poem, 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae, a WWI Lieutenant.
Thank you to all of the parents and members of our school community who joined us in our Remembrance Day Ceremony.
Our focus in Religious Education this week has been to explore the beliefs and practices of Judaism. The children have discovered the significance of the features of the Jewish synagogue, and the importance of the Torah.
They have also identified what happens during Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest, and the festival of Passover. These photos show how the children used drama skills to represent the key events in the story of Moses.
For the last 2 weeks, Year 6 have used a range of cutting and joining skills to create a hand-operated toy with a CAM. The children have enjoyed converting rotary motion into linear motion, and have shown determination and perseverance during the construction process.
The children in Nursery and Reception loved playing with the final products and helping the Year 6 children to evaluate their toy.
Playground Partners have begun their role during playtimes, ensuring that their peers are happy and safe on the yard or field; helping them to find a friend or just offer a listening ear!
This week, our year have been immersed in a world of art and creativity. They've explored the work of the renowned artist, Frida Kahlo, looking at her iconic self-portraits and the stories behind them.
They've honed their artistic skills by using guidelines to draw faces with the correct proportions. Furthermore, these budding artists have been practising the art of tonal contrast, adding depth and dimension to their creations.
It's been an inspiring journey of self-expression and growth, as they have taken inspiration from Kahlo's artistry while developing their skills. Well done Year 6.
