In Indoor PE this half-term, the children have been learning about how they can show mirroring, contrasting and matching through their body positions. Whilst learning about this, the children have helped each other by doing peer assessment to give guidance on how they can perfectly match their partner. This has been quite a tricky skill, especially when you cannot see each other! The children have really enjoyed learning about this and we have also been able to recap some of our maths skills.
As part of our World War 2 topic, the children in Year 6 had the opportunity to visit Armley Mills to take part in an evacuee role play workshop. All the children came to school dressed as evacuees and made a brilliant effort. They also took on a person of a WW2 child. Whilst on our visit, the children learnt what happened during this time and even learnt a gas mask drill.
Last week, the children were given an exciting opportunity to bake bread along side Warburtons. The children learnt about the history of Warburtons, learnt top tips for food hygiene and discussed foods that would keep them healthy. Afterwards, the children were given dough to knead and they created their own shapes. It all looked and smelt very tasty!
The children in Year 6 had the opportunity to carry out geography fieldwork. The purpose of this fieldwork was to find out what the different types of land are in Hemsworth. Back in class, the children have then used the correct terminology to label their sketch maps. The results of the upcoming geography work will be to work out whether Hemsworth would have been suitable for and evacuee in WW2.
