With smiles on our faces, the Year 6 are spending the day writing to the elderly residents of some of our local nursing homes. We know that many of our older generation are having to self isolate and we hate the idea of them feeling alone at this time.

Year 6 -Becoming Architects, by Mrs Parry
Date: 9th Mar 2020 @ 11:19am
On Friday Year 6 spent an exciting morning creating a prototype for a new Birkenhead Landmark. We studied the features and measurements of iconic landmarks in our capital city and put together a proposal for a replica structure in our own locality.
As architects we needed to use our maths to calculate land areas, surface areas and volume and then we applied our understanding of scale factors to produce blue prints for construction. We had no idea how much maths was involved!

Year 6 Come & Share, by Mrs Parry
Date: 27th Nov 2019 @ 2:08pm
This morning's Come & Share was a great success. The children talked about their learning in history and showed our visitors what they had learned about WWI and WWII. Their knowledge of specific dates and events was incredible. We then related this to our studies of charities in RE and the terrible effects war both had on the world and continues to have on our world today.
Together we made Christmas cards for strangers - Refugees fleeing war zones, Veterans living with the effects of warfare and individuals who have been affected by violence and fighting. We wrote messages of support and hope and began making packages of love (containing dry, warm socks) to send to both local homeless shelters and charities.
We are so proud of our Year 6, their maturity and their compassion.
