Making our Mark

Year 6 have very quickly settled back into life at Sheen Mount.  In the first couple of weeks of the new academic year, we have been learning about the experience of the children who were evacuated during World War II as part of our history lessons.  We have also started to read our core text, “Letters from the Lighthouse”, in which two children are evacuated to Devon to keep them safe from the Blitz.  We are looking forward to writing our own letters in the style of an evacuee next week.

This week we really enjoyed consolidating and extending our understanding of colour mixing and theory as part of our unit of work on Mark Rothko and Abstract Expressionism.

In science we are learning all about the five kingdoms of life (bacteria, protists, fungi, plants and animals) and we are getting used to learning with children from the other two classes in our French, RE, computing, music, spelling and debating lessons.
