Hola! from Mexico
Year 6 have been having a fun filled afternoon, making Maracas for their new topic on Mexico. We used a balloon, paper-Mache and toilet rolls to form the basis. We are then going to cover them again in paper-Mache and then paint them! Watch this space for our finished Maracas!
As part of their Topic homework, Year 6 made evacuee suitcases, which they filled with what they would take if they were to be evacuated. They then invited Year Three in for our Class Museum, in order for them to see what children may have taken with them!
Dig for Victory
Within our topic, Year Six have been looking at the 'Dig for Victory' campaign. We combined this with our Literacy writing, to write instruction on how to make Woolton Pie. This is us preparing all of the ingredients! Danny, who took his home and added a sprinkling of cheese, said that his was "delicious"!
Year Six had a fantastic Evacuee Day! They began the day by attending school, however they did not know where there were going! Eventually, they were evacuated to Manor Farm, where they were billeted and then set off to School and to do their farm jobs! They learnt lots of things in the 1940's school, although the Headmistress was a bit scary!
