Today in Literacy we took examples of prepositions from Kensuke’s Kingdom. We were separated into groups of 5 or 6 to create a poster of the examples. We had a class competition between how many examples the girls and boys found. Here are two pictures of our work:

Happiness has spread around Shrewsbury especially Year 6. We have been happy nearly all the time. With all this happiness – Year 6 bloggers have been going around the classrooms to ask what makes you happy. This was inspired by 4MD’s assembly. Here is a video of children and teachers answers:

This week, 6JN have been testing which material is the best to use for blackout Curtains. We have learnt that Blackout Curtains are used in the Blitz during the World War 2 to protect light from getting out so enemy bombers cannot see. We then need to fill in a chart and draw a line graph of the results we get. To complete this we used a photometer (light sensor).

Last Friday, we conducted a science investigation involving light and World War 2 blackout materials. We concluded that our neck tie is the best for the blackout because it thick and dark. The worst material is paper because first its white colour, second its thin and light can pass through it.

On Friday we went to the Atrium and also the Year 2 playground. The Drill Sergeants taught us some basic drills and skills such as ‘RIGHT TURN’ and ‘LEFT TURN’ etc. Some of the children were punished with push ups, wall squat and sit ups. It was a very exhausted time being a child. Please have a good look at this video.

Last week, we had evacuation day and full book week. We dressed up as evacuees and went up to the recital hall to be chosen by the host and hostess. Almost all of us got chosen and the unlucky few didn’t have a home and the billeting officer had to sort it all. it was really fun pretending to be evacuees and doing work for the host and hostess. We helped the host and hostess clean the rooms and fix things. In the end we all got home safely.
Tuesday 6th March was full of excitement for Y6. It was our evacuation day! where we tried to imitate the feelings of an evacuee. It was a really fun day. Some of us got really mean parents and got annoyed while others got luxury treatment with their guardians.

On Thursday, we were transported into experiencing what it was like to be in a blitz. We had to go down silently to the school’s air raid shelter which is in the basement of the Memorial Hall. Some of us were petrified! However, most of us were nice and calm. Here is a picture of us in the air raid shelter. What an engaging experience.
