Mental Health Awareness Day
On Mental Health Awareness Day, we spent some time exploring what mental health is. We discussed the difference between a positive and negative mental health.
We spent some time reflecting on what helps our own mental health. One of the activities we found that can help our mental health is painting. We spent some time painting images from the very good book by Charlie Mackesy which contained some helpful quotes.
Henry VIII biographies
We have been working hard learning about the features of biographies. We have written biographies on Richard III and Henry VIII. We are particularly proud of our completed biographies.
How would you describe King Henry VIII?
Whilst learning about the Tudor era, we have explored Tudor links in our city of Leicester. Year 6 never realised there were so many links to this period around them and were curious to learn more!
The story of the discovery of Richard III's remains under a car park is just a piece of the story of Leicester in the Tudor times.
Using digital mapping software, we explored what remains from the Tudor era and what purpose of the buildings are now.
We learnt how to describe the location of these locations using six-digit grid references.
We have made a start on our new exciting music project - turntablism! We have been given the exciting opportunity to learn how to become budding DJs using turntables.
We are currently learning 'Jiggy - jig-gy' and 'Ah..back'. These skills are a bit trickier than they first seem, but we are demonstrating great resilience and continuing to practise. We are learning how to read music notation and are designing our very own music pieces!
