Week Commencing 12th October 2020

6KR have found their research into the Tudors very interesting this half term. They have especially enjoyed learning about King Henry VIII and his controversial choices. This week they have explored the similarities and differences between the lifestyles of the rich and poor.

Week Commencing 5th October 2020

6KR have enjoyed raising money to support YoungMinds so that they can help even more young people and their families at a time when it’s most needed. As a class we have discussed mental health and positivity. Looking after our wellbeing has never been more important!

Week Commencing 28th September 2020

6KR learnt about the different parts of the blood and their functions and then we got to make our own! You can have a go at home by following the instructions below. Remember to ask a year 6 what each part does and why it is so important.


You will need: 

  • Strawberry laces 
  • Hundreds and thousands 
  • Marshmallows 
  • Oil 
  • Sandwich bag



  1. Open your sandwich bag. 
  2. Add a sprinkling of red blood cells (strawberry laces) so that oxygen can be carried around the bloodstream. 
  3. Now add some white blood cells (marshmallows) so that your body’s defences are abroad in the blood. 
  4. Now add some platelets (hundreds and thousands) so that if you’re injured, your blood will clot. 
  5. Now add the plasma and fluid (oil) and seal your blood vessel.

Week Commencing 21st September 2020

6KR started working on their art project which they will be displaying outside the classroom. Watch this space!

Week commencing 14th September 2020

6KR have been learning about The Battle of Bosworth. This week we started by playing Decisions Decisions to see if the children could complete the sentences to find the facts. Now they will use their knowledge to write a newspaper report about the event. In science, we are learning about the circulatory system. Here is a diagram of its most important component: the heart.
