Mini police sessions
In our mini police session, we looked at creating some posters around the theme of respect - something that has been at the centre of all our sessions as mini police.
With our PCSOs, we went into Boxmoor to talk to business owners and explain about what we have learnt. A few of us were even able to put posters up in the windows of these businesses!
The remaining posters are displayed below.
Well done to Year 6 for conducting themselves so well, and explaining their learning so well.
Christmas in Year 6
We have had lots of fun this Christmas in Year 6. We have met various farm animals, filmed a Christmas song and travelled to St Johns church to put up our hand-crafted decorations.
Everyone has had a brilliant time, and Year 6 are enjoying their Christmas activities after a hard working term. Well done everyone!
We are delighted to be back for the new academic year - it has been lovely to see the children back, with smiles on their faces, ready to learn and have a fantastic year!
WW2 Abandoned Places
In Year 6, we have been learning about World War 2.
One of the things we found out was that war creates a need for many different types of places, including: anti-tank barricades, look out posts, munition storage and air craft hangers.
After the war, these places no longer had a purpose and many were abandoned - they are slowly crumbling and being re-claimed by nature.
We learnt about using proportion, sketching technique and shading - we then applied this as we drew a picture, based on a set of photos, of an abandoned place from WW2.
We hope you enjoy the pictures, we are very proud of them.
Coding on Chromebooks in Year 6
We have continued to look at coding in Scratch - specifically we were looking a creating a maze game. This involved:
Creating a sprite that could move in four directions
A start/ finish that triggered a response from the sprite
A hazardous maze that sent you back to the start if you make a mistake
A well-designed background to engage the player in the maze
Year 6 made a good effort at this, with some of our more confident children beginning to look at creating moving hazards!
Well done Year 6!
