Year 6 – One World Week 2018

Our final week of the half term has been full of creative learning. For One World Week, Year 6 has been studying Poland. We kicked off the week by looking at the physical and human characteristics of the country, and since then have cooked Placki ziemniaczane (Polish potato pancakes), danced the Krakowiak, performed Holocaust poetry, written our own Holocaust poems, created Wycinanki (Polish paper cutting folk art) and studied a piece of music by Polish composer Chopin. They have produced beautiful learning which they are extremely proud of. We were also very lucky because Sara brought in some beautiful traditional Polish clothes and told us about the designs and when she wears them. Thank you Sara!IMG_0125
