Class Book: Boy by Roald Dahl
We are currently taking part in the '100 Book Reading Challenge'. As a class, our aim is to collectively read 100 books before leaving Year 6. The display in our classroom shows us which books we must complete. Once we've completed a book, we place a token on it. If we would recommend the book to someone else, we pop a star on it.
Thanks to all parents that are helping with our challenge by visiting the library regularly and even buying books to help support this.
Holocaust Museum Visit
As part of our History/RE topic we visited the Holocaust Museum.
During our visit, we followed the journey of a Jewish boy, Leo, and his family during WW2. Leo was eventually evacuated to Britain on the Kinder-transport.
In the afternoon we were lucky enough to hear from a Holocaust survivor. Simon Winston was a young jewish boy living in Poland when the second world war started. He shared with us his inspirational story of survival and how he narrowly escaped being captured several times.
The stone pile at the end represents all the Jewish lives lost in the events of the Holocaust.
Today we've been learning about plastic pollution.
We created collage sea creatures using old crisp packets and bottle tops, ready for our display, 'Keep Our Sea Plastic Free.' It will soon be ready to view in the hall.
In science, we are learning about animals and humans. Today we took photos and measurements of ourselves in order to compare how we look and grow throughout the year. We'll take photos and measurements again in February and July to see how we've changed.
