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!
