Hello and welcome to Platinum class. We have had a busy start to Year 6.
Our History topics have been WWI and WWII and we have been researching the reasons that Britain got involved and the impact of the wars on the modern world
In Science, we have been investigating light and electrical circuits, discussing why blackouts were needed during the war.
In English our text for this term is the story of Pavana’s Journey. The story is set in Afghanistan and it explores the tragedy of loss through war and how resilient and brave children can be. Pavana is on a quest to find her mother and we get an insight into her life throughout this difficult time.
In P.E. we have been developing our badminton skills and our gymnastic abilities. We also had a school Benchball competition and Platinum won the Year 5 & 6 round.
