Diversity is our strength

This week in Willow, we have been celebrating a variety of past and present Black stories, as well as Black figures from all walks of life who have acted as inspirational change-makers for future generations.

We researched our own chosen Black significant person and then used what we had found out to help write an interview with them. We thought about what questions we would love to ask our significant person and asked them how they would like to be remembered. After writing our interviews, we had lots of fun working with each other to record our interviews. You can enjoy listening to a selection of our interviews by scanning the QR codes below.

In Art, we produced some beautiful posters to help raise awareness of Black History Month. The theme this year is ‘Time for Change: Action not words’. What a powerful message!

In PE, we explored the apparatus, finding out different ways of travelling, balancing, jumping and landing. What a great workout we had!

If you go down to the woods today…! We found bugs galore during our Forest session this week including newts, beetles, spiders and millipedes to name just a few! It really was the Great British Bug Hunt in Year 6!

There was certainly a buzz in the air during Science this week! Inspired by our class novel ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar, we used our previous learning about conductors and components to design an alarm. We had to incorporate a pressure plate for our switch and a buzzer. If triggered, the alarm would alert the Warden that someone was trespassing. Problem solving skills and team work a –plenty! Well done, Year 6!

Have a lovely weekend.
