This week Year 6 have been busy designing and making their own games for the Winter Fair.  Please do come and visit Y6 on Saturday and see what they have been up to!

On Tuesday Year 6 learnt about Victorians and their clothing.  Mrs Blatch explained about Victorian schooling and some of the children dressed up as characters from the original film of Oliver Twist.

As part of our D and T Year 6 have been designing games for the Christmas Fair. They worked in groups to come up with a company name and 3 products.  They then created a presentation and pitched their ideas to Mrs Baxter, Mrs Lynch, Mrs Clark and the class.  Next week we will be making our games and would be grateful for any cardboard donations.

We then enjoyed making poppies and created a poppy wreath.
