VE Day - Friday 8th May 2020

75 Year Celebration

 

"When VE Day dawns on 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe. Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, mourn their loved – ones and to hope for the future, but not forgetting those still in conflict until 15th August when it was announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II."

 

Please see below for a range of websites, resources and other documents relating to this weekends celebrations and remembrance.

3D Printing Update

 

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

 

I thought I'd share with you what the school 3D printer has been doing during lockdown.

 

I have been working with a group called St Helens COVID mask makers and we've been producing 3D printed masks for frontline/key workers. Lots of these masks have been created and delivered to local places that need protection such as: hospitals, doctors' surgeries and care homes.

 

Here's the printer in action!

 

 

Once the print is made an acetate sheet is attached.

​​​​​​

 

Keep safe, stay active, stay home and be good for your folks! I hope to see you all soon. I missing you all!

Your profiles are set up. Your username is the first 3 letters of your first name, then a full stop, followed by the first 3 letters of your surname. (e.g. If my name was John Smith my username would be joh.smi).

 

Your password is your first name (with a capital letter) and your date of birth.  (e.g. John030609). Please ensure you keep this information private.

 

As always, your blogs will be monitored by admin before having them published. Hopefully this will be a safe and meaningful way to keep in touch with each other over these difficult times.

Maths and English 

Whilst the Government have said that there will not now be SATs tests for Y6 this year, due to the Corona Virus, this is still an important year for Year 6 pupils, as we need to be well prepared for the next step into year 7, in September. So we DO need to continue to study, at the level we have been, and consolidate and embed facts, especially in mathematics and English but also in other areas of the curriculum.  

 

Generally, we need to practise what we have learnt in previous years, but we also need to work hard on new learning too - such as the properties of circles and Algebra in Mathematics, and the use of colons and semi-colons to demarcate independent clauses in English. These are topics we need to study, whilst away from school during this crisis. 

 

History 

 

Our History topic this term is World War 2. We will be asking the question "The Blitz: All we need to know about World War 2?". 

 

We studied the Second World War back in Year 4 but are excited to look at it again in more detail this year. We will be focusing on studying: 

 

  • The role of women during the War.
  • The Geo-Politics of the War. 
  • The impact the War had on children - both those that were evacuated and those that weren't as fortunate. 
  • The impact of the War on Widnes and surrounding locaility. 

 

What facts can you tell us about the war?

Science

 

For Science, we are learning about the Human Body - in particular the systems of the body. This ties in extremely well with our English topic "Blood!"

 

We will be looking closely at the roles of the Circulatory System and Digestive System in keeping us alive.
