The overall winners in each category were:
Year 1 & 2: Jago Buckley (2R)
Year 3 & 4: Eliza Forbes (3O)
Year 5 & 6: Sasha Barrett (5R)
Year 6 have been delving deeper into their WW2 topic by looking at the horrific treatment of the Jews during the reign of the Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany. From this, they begun looking at Anne Frank and her inspiring story and wrote biographies to give a detailed overview of her life as a young Jewish girl during the war. In addition, Year 6 also created presentations about Dorothy Vaughan, a NASA mathematician and pioneer of leadership at a time when women and those of different ethnicities did not have the same opportunities as others, and shared their work and findings to some very eager Year 4 pupils.
To end their week, they also very enthusiastically shared and presented their outstanding WW2 homework projects to each other where so much work had clearly gone into producing excellent and informative pieces of work! Thank you to everyone who supported their children with making these incredible projects.
Please ensure that your child has his/her PE kit in school. This year, Year 6 will be having PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week.
