Year 6 had a fantastic time with their VR experience!

As part of Black History Month, year 6 have recently learnt about Blues Music. We looked at the history of the Blues, explored its features, listened to examples of Blues songs and composed our own Blues compositions, using a variety of instruments. The children did brilliantly and had lots of fun!

Year 6 Trip to Gunpowder Mills Sept 2023 - As part of the children’s first Year 6 theme ‘Behind Enemy Lines’, the children went on an exciting trip to The Royal Gunpowder Mills, in Waltham Abbey, where they even dressed up for the occasion. It introduced them to what it was like to live through WWII, as well as a hands-on object handling and activities workshop, where they got to explore around a museum, with relevant historical artefacts. They also learnt about rationing while visiting a replica wartime shop, explored their fascinating site and discovered what happened at the Royal Gunpowder Mills during the Second World War and they even experienced an air raid – which the children got very excited about.
