Year 6 have been looking at the human circulatory system as part of their science. To help them understand the dual-circulation system they got creative with wool and play doh to form models on their tables. Do you know how blood circulates around the human body?
6K had fun dressing up in their fancy dress for the PTFA.
6K working on a tricky tarsia puzzle

6K looking at the Blitz in English
As part of studying our new text 'Letters from the Lighthouse' we studied life in London during the Blitz. We looked at some photos of the effects of the German bombs and considered the thoughts and feelings of people at that time. We annotated the picture with examples of powerful and figurative language for a writing activity that would happen later in the week.
6W had lots of fun painting their remembrance poppies in art this week!
