Music of World War One
In History lessons, Year 6 have been learning about the First World War. This week, they focused on the music written during this period and analysed three key pieces: ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’, ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ and ‘I Vow to Thee My Country’. They then used glockenspiels to play the opening lines of these songs. The music helped the pupils to understand the changing emotions felt by people throughout the war…and gave them an opportunity to make lots of noise in class!
Computer Science skills are essential in our modern world. Therefore, Year 6 took on the ‘Hour of Code’ challenge this week. They had to follow instructions to build codes and then used their programming skills to create their own Star Wars game. After this, they challenged themselves with a more difficult coding programme from ‘VEX’. You can see the concentration on their faces in the photos below!
Christmas is certainly going to be a little different this year, but St. Cuthbert’s still know how to celebrate! Year 6 started off their party day with dancing and games in the hall, including favourites such as musical chairs and musical statues. This was followed by a talent show, filled with jokes, riddles, songs and gymnastics. What a talented bunch! In the afternoon, Year 6 took a trip to the pantomime (in the classroom) where they were wowed by the magical powers of the ‘Cheatini’. Check out the photos below to see the fun we had.
The true meaning of Christmas
In RE lessons, Year 6 have been thinking about the true meaning of Christmas. They wrote their own radio broadcasts to explain what is meant by the incarnation and why it is special to Christians at this time of the year. Some pupils were brave enough to broadcast their work to the rest of the class. Check out their work in the photos below.
