Shakespeare – RSC
In preparation for watching a live stream performance of Romeo and Juliet by the RSC, Year 6 got to know the story through a drama workshop. They also spent a lesson insulting each other using Shakespeare-inspired insults.
We had a fantastic visit from the Ministry of Chocolate, learning lots about the history of chocolate, how it is made and best of all making our own. Carl the chocolate man also taught us the importance of looking for the fair trade symbol when buying chocolate as that ensures that the farmers are getting a good deal.

Faith in Art
Year 6 looked into the artwork associated with Islam, particularly repeating geometric patterns and calligraphy. We discovered that living creatures are not depicted in Islamic art which is why calligraphy and pattern are used extensively in places of worship. Year 6 children chose a word or words that had a special meaning to them and created their own interpretation of Islamic art.

Ricardo Engineers come to visit
We were very fortunate to have a visit from some engineers from local firm Ricardo. The children learnt about the role of an engineer and had a go at designing and testing materials for a crash test. Each group had to consider both safety and cost to get the best score. It was exciting watching the truck roll down the ramp on each test.
