Year 6 have had a whirlwind of a week and a brilliant end to our half term. We have raced through time and history to learn about the Suffragette’s battle for equality, the history of the Notting Hill Carnival and we have also visited the Natural History Museum to learn about evolution and inheritance.
To celebrate Black History Month, children across the Year 6 classes have created Caribbean inspired menus, learnt about the origins of the Notting Hill Carnival and designed their own celebration masks. We have enjoyed listening and dancing to Soca and Calypso music and ended the term with our very own mini-carnivals!
Children have also been immersed in the struggle for women’s rights and have written and performed their own speeches to campaign for the right to vote. There was uproar across the classes as they delivered their speeches in the style of Emmeline Pankhurst.
To top it all off, each class has also visited the Natural History Museum to support our evolution and inheritance topic in science. We were all in awe of the extraordinary specimens in the museum and were comparing our own clay fossils to the real ones!
Well done on a fantastic half term Year 6, enjoy the break!
