Year 6 Pop up Museum. Children showcased their World War 2 knowledge and loved sharing facts with parents and friends. Half way through there was a dramatic demonstration of how war affected everyone and then a good old Vera Lynn Sing song!

Year 6 visit to Maths City

What a great place! The children had a fantastic time solving problems and puzzles; creating human size bubbles; and building a Leonardo Dome in a team. 


24.11.2022 Year 6 visited the Royal Armouries for a World War II workshop.   During the visit, the children found out how factories that made toys were made into factories to produce arms for the war effort. They were taught how to be Privates on the Home Front and how to respond to orders.  Afterwards they found out about being an APR warden during the Blitz and practiced black out during an air raid simulation. 


In todays assembly, to mark Remembrance Day, Year 6 read our class poem: Remember by Yorkshire Prose.  

In Literacy, children in Year 6, used drama to portray Britains response to the Blitz. Some children showed evacuees leaving the cities; some children showed wardens clearing people off the streets and to shelter during an air raid. 


In today’s History lesson, Ms Core kindly brought in a collection of letters and documents from World War II which belonged to her Grandfather.  These included an identity card, official letters to advise that he was missing in action, letters to advise he was found and finally a post card home from a prisoner of war camp.  The children were fascinated and it really brought home the gravity and seriousness of what individuals and families went through during this time in history. 


National Poetry Day 

Children went out into the park to perform poems to do with the environment which they had been practicing during the day.

Today Year 6 visited Malham in the Yorkshire Dales to enrich their learning in Geography.  The trip included a very undulating walk ( around 8km) which covered Malham Cove,  Gordale Scar and Janet’s Foss.  Children used OS maps to recognise features and contours of the land. 

Today we were extremely fortunate to be visited by a former Meanwood pupil. Year 6 listened as they described what life was like at the school during World War 2. It was fascinating to hear how life in Meanwood has changed and also how some things have remained the same. The children were very good during the visit and had some very thoughtful questions to ask.
