As part of our World Book Day, 2019, in Y6, we have been focusing on Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, a book following a ten year old boy stranded on an island after an around the world voyage with his family went wrong. We have been on the topic of the book for a few weeks and managed to just finish it in time for World Book Day. For the day, we all dressed up as the characters from Michael Morpurgo book: sailors, Michael himself and some even dressed up as Stella, Michael’s dog!
One of the activities that took place was a collaboration animated trailer for the upcoming film of the book. We all split into teams and had so much fun creating props and animating them on the iPad. As a result of all our hard work, we had such a laugh watching back our masterpiece.
Y6 had so much fun for World Book Day 2019, celebrating and sharing our favourite books with each other.
Congratulations to the Year 6 children who have been learning about Emergency Life Support (ELS) this week in school with Mr Fernandes. ELS is the set of actions needed to keep someone alive until professional help arrives.
Our school is a member of the British Heart Foundations 'Heartstart' programme, helping to train children in ELS skills.
The children were instructed on how to get help, the recovery position, how to help someone that may be having a heart attack and how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Today the Year 6’s went on an exciting trip to the Wilberforce House Museum in Hull. We had an amazing time learning about West African culture and took part in workshops where we had a go at some traditional arts and crafts. We learnt lots of interesting new facts about the Transatlantic Slave Trade and saw artefacts and pictures which led us to think about how different life was when the slave trade happened. We also visited the Street Life Museum next door, where we explored the history of transport and even had a go on some on some old arcade slot machines. More photos here.
