Welcome to Year 6's page. We're really looking forward to some exciting learning opportunities as we make the most of our final year at All Hallows. 

 

 

 

 

This week Class Wollaton went on their final residential visit to PGL in Caythorpe.  We had great fun on all the activities and, as you can see from the photos below, everyone got stuck in...even the staff!!  

Holocaust Centre Visit

 

On Monday 22nd November, Class Wollaton visited the Holocaust Centre in Laxton where we learnt all about what it was like for Jewish people running up to and during WWII. We followed the journey of an 11 year old Jewish boy, Leo Stein, and found out what it was like for him growing up during this terrible period in history. The most amazing part of our visit, was listening to a Holocaust survivor called Simon Winston. Simon, who is now in his 80s, spoke to us about what he had to endure as a child growing up as a Polish Jew and how he spent so much of his childhood in hiding in order to survive. He talked about the 'miracles' that helped to keep him alive, including how his father had stashed gold bars in a brush handle which later allowed his family to buy their way out of a ghetto and flee to safety.  Simon taught us not to pick on people just because they are different- what a powerful way to learn this message. Look through our photos below- you can see us queuing up to collect a stone. We carefully laid our stones on a huge pile. Each stone in the pile represents one of the children lost to the Holocaust. 

Come in to look at our Holocaust display outside Class Wollaton.
