Year 6 – 19/10/18

Wow, what a week it’s been! Today has been unforgettable. From a special assembly in the morning and creating Pope Paul VI peace art, to making Vatican flags and culminating in the grand finale of the release of 12 white doves, our memories of celebrating when Pope Paul became St Paul will stay with us forever.

Also this week, we welcomed Mrs Dain, a resident of Potters Bar who lived during WW2. She consolidated our learning of the reasons for the outbreak of the war, and shared stories of her experience. It was captivating to hear her speaking with so much passion and vigour. In science, the children carried out investigations they had planned the previous week looking into what affects brightness in an electrical circuit.

One World Week Home Learning – due Tuesday 23rd October 2018

Next week is One World Week and, in Year 6, we are going to be studying Poland. We will be doing lots of fun and interesting activities, including creating folk art, cooking Polish food and learning about Poland’s situation in WWII.

For home learning this weekend, you are asked to do a research project on a famous person. Two of the most famous Polish people in history are Nicolaus Copernicus, the astronomer, and Marie Curie, the scientist. Choose one of these people, research their life, then decide how you are going to present what you’ve found out. Your home learning needs to be hand-written and must answer the following questions:

  • What is this person famous for?
  • How has this person influenced our life today?

I will make a display of your learning, so ensure it is visually appealing as well as informative.

I look forward to seeing what you produce!
