Today Year 6 have been working with Mr Paul Stevens and have participated in a drama workshop. The powerful workshop gave a clear insight into the dangers of alcohol.
Year 6 delivered an effective and highly emotive assembly.
Year 6 have spent the day experiencing many different activities based on World War 2:
- Learning and rehearsing songs
- Creating ‘old’ paper and developing calligraphy skills
- Sketching and discussing artifacts from the War & the impact it has on us
- Tasting and creating food based on rationed ingredients
Excellent resources were found from http://www.historic-newspapers.co.uk/
