Term 3

This term in Dance, 6CH have been learning a number of dance styles that were popular during World War II such as the (rather tricky) Charleston, Lindy Hop and Lambeth Walk. We have loved learning these new moves and listening to a range of ‘Big Band’ music from this time period. This week we created an interpretative dance in groups to ‘Mars’ from Holst’s Planet Suite depicting the events of WWII. The children showed such creativity to produce beautifully choreographed dances inspired by the Blitz, the D-Day landings, soldiers on the battlefield and poppies growing.

Term 2

For term 2, our Rights and Respecting Theme is ‘The Right to Learn and Play’. This term we have thoroughly enjoyed working collaboratively with others to develop our knowledge and understanding. In Science, as part of our ‘Light and How We See’ topic, we planned an investigation into how shadows change in small groups and carried it out in the darkened classroom. In Maths, we have loved working together to play games such as ‘Connect four’ to practise adding and subtracting fractions and creating posters in groups to illustrate our methods when problem solving.

Term 1

In 6CH, we have enjoyed our weekly library slots and the opportunity to choose and share a book with our friends.
