RISK

Standard
Today we played RISK. We were separated into different country teams, and were given scenarios to discuss and decide the best action to take to defend or benefit our country.
What did you learn it today’s lesson? How might it have been difficult for world leaders, leading up to the outbreak of WW2?

Peace

Standard

Last month, Year 6 had a peace evening in school. As part of the evening we created peace doves, bunting and stones to share messages of peace in different languages. Today we hung the doves and bunting up around the school grounds and left the peace stones in the woods for children to find.

See if you can spot our peace messages around school.

Museum of mould experiment

Standard

Todays science lesson, year6 are testing some brown bread that we got because we are learning about micro-organisms and mould. By testing the bread we will know the answer to our questions we did in our science books. We are checking what will be the fastest to mould the bread quicker! Some of the options are put the bread in a light and dark cupboard,put some in the fridge and in the classroom and leave the bread outside.We will find our answers in a weeks time.
