Continuing with our topic of ‘Sinking Ships’ we made our own boats in DT.
We first created a success criteria needed for a successful boat and then move on to designed our boats.
Then we created our boats using materials we had brought in from home.
Year six have begun their new topic of ‘Sinking Ships’, linking to that topic we had a visit from the RNLI.
The children learnt how to stay safe, a little history of the RNLI ships and also how the RNLI work endlessly to keep us safe in water.

During Poetry Week, year six wrote a wintery Alaskan inspired poem.
They learnt this together and performed it to other pupils, staff and parents/careers at St. Peter’s Church.
The RSPB visited year six to help them with their new science topic of living things.
We began our journey to London very early in the morning (6:50).
We took a coach from school to Piccadilly Station to get on the direct Virgin train to London.
Once we arrived at Euston Station we took a quick tube ride to The London Eye!
This landmark links closely with our current class read of The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd, it was amazing to
finally see something we have read so much about!
We enjoyed lunch sat under The London Eye.
Next we boarded a Thames River Cruise to take in many of the sights that London has to offer.
After we hopped off the cruise we walked towards the Gillian Lynn Theatre to watch The School of Rock!
It was an amazing show! We all absolutely LOVED IT!
We then had a quick whistle stop tour of Trafalgar Square lead by Mrs Whiteside!
London Eye – Breaking News!
We have begun to read The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd! We are really enjoying the story so far!
One of the main characters Salim has vanished and we have put out a breaking news report, with a description
of his appearance, last whereabouts and key witnesses!

In Year 6 we have been looking at Roy Lichtenstein, the famous pop art artist.
We began the week by researching Roy Lichtenstein and learning all about his life and his painting.
Next, we tried out different techniques and equipment to achieve the perfect Roy Lichtenstein effect.
Finally, we chose our favourite techniques, equipment and colours to create our own Roy Lichtenstein inspired portrait.
