I'm an evacuee... Get me out of here!!!!!!
As an introduction to our latest topic, WWII, 6W became evacuees for the day at Tatton Park. Whilst there, they got to see what life was like for real evacuees in the village and spent the day carrying out jobs that children would have had to do during the war including: milking cows, polishing saddles and blinkers of horses and learning about other tasks expected of them. They also got to try out different games that people played for entertainment whilst experiencing an air raid siren and visiting a shelter for safety. The children learnt lots of valuable information they will be able to apply to this topic as well as having wonderful experience throughout the day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, thank you Tatton Park.
UKS2 Environment Alert! - Freshwater Theatre Company
On Tuesday and Wednesday, UKS2 had a special visit from the Freshwater Theatre Company to highlight all the dangers faced by the environment. During their session, 6W learnt all about the environment, the dangers posed to it and the causes behind it. Whilst learning, they had to be as dramatic as possible acting out dangers. They also created a transformation machine, giving them the opportunity to recycle old materials into new, much needed objects such as chairs. 6W had a fantastic time being very dramatic whilst taking lots of learning away from the session to apply to the rest of their topic.
Below are numerous photos from the session of the children acting.

6W are saving the environment - 1 piece of plastic at a time
As part of our new topic, the children have been learning all about plastic and the danger it poses to the environment. Taking this into account, 6W have been making their own bio-degradeable plastic that won't end up in the ocean damaging marine wildlife or bleaching coral and won't be sent to another country to be dumped into a landfill site and burnt. Below, the children are making their bio plastic and an example set of instructions the children made on how to make the plastic if you are interested.
