Autumn 2021 – Evacuate! Evacuate!

Welcome back everyone! Year 6 have had an amazing start to their new theme ‘Evacuate! Evacuate!’ with a fantastic trip on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway, where the children were evacuated by steam train to the country.When we arrived at the station,  the children were greeted by ‘Farmer Wells’ who took them back in time to 1945 where they got to meet and speak to a real life evacuee, experience a mock Air Raid, arrest a German spy and work in teams to put out some fake fires. It truly was a memorable experience for all! We are now looking forward to applying all the fantastic knowledge we learned to our Diary writing. 

Autumn 2020

Welcome back! We have had a superb start to our first theme – Jungle Fever! 

Class 6 have been working really hard to create stunning rainforest leaves and animal skin patches (after studying Henri Rousseau’s ‘Surprise’ painting). Our shared area is looking fantastic! 









We have also had an amazing time on our trips to Copsegrove Farm. On our first day we learned some survival skills such as making solar stills for collecting water, dens for shelter and foraging blackberries for food as well as cooking over the fire.

During our second trip we enjoyed popcorn by the fire before setting off in our groups to learn how to identify different trees from their leaves and how to age trees by measuring the girth of the tree using our hands and tape measures. We then made leaf and berry prints on material using a pressing technique with stones. We also learned how to filter water using a tripod and various filtering materials such as grass,  sand and charcoal. The highlight of the day was making our very own apple juice!

On our third and final visit the children were given the challenge of building badger homes which would keep a badger cosy and warm. They then rotated around lots of activities such as bug hunts, identifying animal skulls, creating clay animals and learning about animal and insect adaptation. The highlight of the day was making chocolate wraps over the fire! What a fantastic end to such an amazing experience at Copsegrove Farm. A huge thank you to Kate for planning an amazing 3 days of activities which inspired and challenged the children. They thoroughly enjoyed each day.

To the shelter!

Year 6 have been busy researching about the different types of shelters used in WW2. They then created their own models of a shelter thinking carefully about the strength of their chosen materials. We then tested the strength of each shelter by dropping weights on to them.













































Evacuate! Evacuate!

Class 6 had an exciting start to their new theme of learning for the term, heading off to Bewdley for a blitz and evacuation experience. Arriving excitedly at our location for the start of the day (Bewdley Museum), the children clambered down from the coach dressed in their 1940’s attire (teachers too) entering a world from the past! The class were informed about life during World War 2 and the many ways families had to adapt to stay safe. They loved squeezing into the Anderson shelter imagining they were part of a real air raid! The best was yet to come…the actual evacuation!

Marching in pairs through the town towards the train station, the children eagerly awaited the distinguished blast of the train’s whistle and the puff of steam as the train slowly chugged into the station. As the train pulled away, the children were able to imagine what it would have been like for evacuees in the 1940s, empathising with their worries and excitement too. A wonderful day was had by all, with a wealth of knowledge gained from the day’s activities, the children were set up for the rest of the term’s learning; enthused and ready to learn more!

Welcome to our journey into Ancient Greece – keep checking this blog to find out what we have been discovering about this ancient civilisation!

Jungle Fever!

Welcome to the jungle! Our classroom is turning, bit by bit, into a rainforest.

The children in Class 6 have been working really hard to create stunning rainforest leaves, animal skin patches (after studying Henri Rousseau’s ‘Surprise’ painting, felt butterflies and ‘all about me’ snakes – it’s all getting wild!

We have already been on an exciting visit to The Living Rainforest. We were stunned by the variety of plants and vegetation within the domes and loved observing the range of animals there – we were so excited to finally spot Cinnamon the sloth (after much searching). She was beautiful. It was so fantastic to see the animal that Bussage had adopted as part of the Erasmus + project in the flesh! A great day was had, and the experience is now helping us to have a better understanding of rainforests.
