Here are some really fantastic homework projects from our excellent year 6 children. Lucy became the teacher as she showed her fantastic presentation on World War 2 including a section on her great grandad and his military service history as well as the many medals he had earned.
Millie showed us her Anderson shelter complete with real soil and a fork for digging up home grown veg!
Ruby brought in a variety of historical items including a baggage tag, a ration book from 1929, a kitkat wrapper and a diary entry from 1938 all with written entries explaining their significance.
Macy helped us ‘read all about it’ with this stunning front page of a newspaper, sketched then shaded with charcoal. Impressive work!
Well done everyone! It’s lovely to see the children putting so much time and effort into their projects.

For his World War 2 homework, Ashton has made his very own Anderson shelter. We especially like the attention to detail with the washing line that comes complete with clothes, pegs and a little robin perched on the post! Notice also the shovel and fork – vital tools in the Dig For Victory campaign. Well done Ashton!
Don’t forget, Year 6, the deadline for World War 2 homework is December 2nd.

As part of their learning about World War 2, Year 6 have been looking at rationing. Working in pairs, they have worked together to calculate how much food would be required for a family of four per week and how much it would cost in ‘old money’. Some of the children couldn’t believe that at one time you could buy an egg for a penny!

Gabriel, with the help of his dad, has made a replica German sniper rifle for his World War 2 homework. He says it took him and his dad between 2 and 3 weeks to complete. Excellent work Gabriel!
Remember Year 6, the deadline for your homework on World War 2 is the 2nd of December.

Year Two Visit Cosford

Yesterday we had a lovely trip to Cosford RAF Museum! The children enjoyed looking at lots of different planes and discovering how planes work through lots of Scientific investigations. We were extremely lucky to see the Spitfire which was designed by Reginald Mitchell (who we will be learning about later in the term) and to try on different pilot outfits from World War One and Two.

Year 4 Visit to Chester

Year 4 had a fantastic visit to the DEWA Roman Experience in Chester yesterday.

The children took part in a Roman Solider patrol, learning all about the military tactics used by the Romans, as well as the armour and weaponry that was used to help the Roman Empire conquer so much of Europe. We visited the Amphitheatre and learnt more about gladiatorial combat and also visited the museum to learn more about Roman life. We found out about food, medicine, the bath houses and more before seeing all of the fantastic archaeological evidence that has been found in Chester. The children were brilliant ambassadors for our school and received many compliments from the staff at DEWA. Well done Year 4!

Well done to all of the children in Year 5 who have brought in their projects. We’ve had some amazing shields, axes, ships… Some children preferred to write while others made models or made a PowerPoint. Thank you so much to all parents/carers who helped with sawing, drilling, cutting etc.
