In our topic lessons, we are learning about WWII. As a part of this, we looked at some work by famous English artist, L.S. Lowry, to help us to understand what Britain was like during the 1930s. We took inspiration from Lowry to create our own pieces of art.
With the start of the new school year we revisit all we have learned about internet safety and how as we get older it is still relevant, in fact as we get even more competent with a computer we can do far more so come in contact with far more people in the digital world.
We know that in school we have filters and monitoring software that is used to keep us safe but sometimes even with these in place we need to TELL an adult when we feel uncomfortable.
Remember our school computer rules.
- Don’t switch off the program or close the screen.
- Only use technology when you are supervised by an adult.
- Close the laptop or turn over an iPad.
- Tell an Adult.
But we don’t just use computers in school we use them outside, where there aren’t as many filters in place.

In science this half term, we are learning about blood. We have made our own blood smoothies using all of the different components: red blood cells (cheerios), white blood cells (marshmallows), platelets (oats) and plasma (yellow water).
We are looking forward to being in contact with our French penpals! We have made some friendship bracelets to send to them to wish them good luck for starting back at school.
We have started this term with an alphabet reading challenge. Each team is trying to read a book starting with every letter of the alphabet!
We are very excited to be starting a new school year. Welcome to all the new Year 6 pupils!
