World War 2 Day

October                                                                                                                                                                       To celebrate nearing the end our World War II topic, Year 6 enjoyed an experiential day where they participated in a range of exciting activities. These included baking honey cakes with rationed ingredients, creating replica paper spitfires, embroidering individual pieces of fabric to create our celebratory bunting, writing radio broadcasts, using telegrams, thinking about what we might take in an evacuee’s suitcase and translating Morse code messages. In the afternoon, we had lots of fun looking at an amazing Jeep from 1945 and feeling how heavy army equipment was before sampling our delicious jam sandwiches and honey cakes. Thank you so much to our parent volunteers for helping out!

Paired Reading

October                                                                                                                                                                  Year 6 have paired up with a buddy from Year 1 to enjoy books. The Year 1’s have enjoyed reading to the older children and, in turn, the Year 6’s have felt very responsible being allowed to write in their reading records – even awarding house points! We’re looking forward to some more lovely times working together!

Coleridge Maths Quiz – Autumn 2021 – Year 6

A Year 6 Student reports …

On Wednesday 29th of September, 12 students from Queen Edith Year 6 competed in a mathematical quiz which took place at Coleridge Community College. The 12 of us took part as two teams of six against participants from other local schools. There were three rounds, starting with number puzzles, then number crosswords and lastly a relay race which got our hearts beating fast. We had to work together as a team and be speedy with our arithmetic.

After all their hard work it was finally revealed that the two Queen Edith teams had come first and second! Congratulations to everyone who took part – we can’t wait to have the engraved trophy presented!

Science – Leaf Study – Autumn 2021 – Year 6

Year 6 took advantage of our lovely field space in Science recently. We’re studying plants and looking for key observable characteristics. We each chose the most interesting leaf we could find and then took it indoors to discuss. We then created a branch diagram to help us work out what sort of leaf it was!

World War II – Year 6

This half term, Year 6 are learning about World War II. In one of our first topic lessons, we looked at the countries that were involved and whether they were allies, neutral or an axis power. We used our knowledge from previous lessons, our own research, and the atlases to help us colour code our own maps of Europe.
