The Autumn term has been an exciting start to year 6. We have covered historical events during the Second World War We designed and made shelters and researched The Battle of Britain and The Blitz. In art we studied Henry Moore and his sketching of the impact of the war on London society. We then looked at the work of Banksy and created our own drawings in his style, relating to the current Covid pandemic. In science we have worked hard to study the human circulatory and digestive system, enjoying fun experiments to demonstrate the workings of the body. We have also looked at animal classification.
