Black History Day
Friday 2nd October
In year six we have been learning about Martin Luther King. He was a Baptist minister and one of the most important leaders who led peaceful protests to fight for equality during the 1960s. He hoped that America and the world could become a colour-blind society where race would not impact a person's civil rights. . Martin Luther King may be best remembered for his famous “I Have a Dream” speech issued on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. He is considered one of the great public speakers of modern times and his speeches still inspire many to this day.
Wednesday 23rd September
During the last week in English we have been learning about poetry. Firstly, we looked at a poem by John Drinkwater called 'I want to know'. We discussed how the language used impacted the reader and then used this to write our own versions of John Drinkwater's poem.
Today we looked at a poem called Mcavity. We began to learn the verses by heart then performed the poem to the class.
On Tuesday 15th September we visited Weston Park as part of our topic study. We had the opportunity to experience what life was like for children at home in Britain during World War Two. We created our own gas masks and viewed a collection of authentic gas masks - including one for a baby, toddler and child. We experienced an Air Raid and visited an Anderson shelter to discover what conditions were really like.
We would like to welcome children and parents from 6S to our class page!
We will regularly update this page with work and activities that have been completed in class or any information that needs to be shared with you.
Miss Salim and Mrs Begum are looking forward to the year ahead!
Please watch this space for weekly updates!
