Year 6 become evacuees for the day

Year 6 had a great day visiting Beamish where we found out what it would be like to be an evacuee during WW2.  We did lots of fun things: sat around the fire in a 1940s cottage, baked carrot cookies, pretended to be the home guard and went inside an Anderson Shelter!

Historical Detectives!

Beamish Outreach came to visit us yesterday to talk about what it was like in Britain during World War 2. We especially enjoyed learning about evacuees and playing “detective” with the lost evacuee suitcases. We were able to find out so much about the children who owned the suitcases from their contents!

Fun in Science!

Year 6 have been working hard, learning about the organs in our body. In this lesson, we drew around a member of our group then tried to place the main organs where we thought they were located – it was trickier than we thought it would be!
