Wildside- Day 3
Wildside - Day 2
Wildside - Day 1
Term 1 - sailing, evacuees, air-raids and eggless sponges!
It has been a busy start to the term in year 6. Right at the beginning of the term we headed off to Portland to see a real working lighthouse and explore the amazing landscape of the Bill - children loved exploring the rocks and small caves. A great place to explore with the family!
I'll hand over to Tilly and Ryan to explain what happened next . . .
St Marys year 6s had the amazing opportunity to sail at the Weymouth and Portland National sailing Academy. 25 students (1 mum and 1 dad)
Last week we put away our uniform and replaced our outfits with those of children in the 1940s. Children explored the thoughts and emotions of children during this troubling time - those with younger siblings were particularly anxious about being left in charge! We used quills to write our own labels, drank tea and ate rationing favourites: an eggless sponge and honey biscuits
(Slightly concerned about this waxwork!)
In the afternoon we made gas masks, picked blackberries ready for hedgerow jam and shared the precious items that we would have brought with us.
Through these trips and events we grew stronger together as a class and as individuals. We as staff loved getting to know the children more and all their wonderful individual characteristics!
