In February, Year 6 went on their annual residential to Robinwood. They say 'pictures paint a thousand words'. Take a look at these photos to get a glimpse of the fantastic memories that Violet Class made!
Autumn Term Topic
Our first topic in year 6 is The World Wars. We will be studying World Wars One and Two.
Things we will be investigating throughout the term:
- Life in the trenches
- The Blitz
- The role of women during the war
- Daily life for children during the war
What a week! We've tasted; we've sampled healthy salad ingredients, and loved or loathed them; we've planned, based on our findings; and finally, we prepared.
We've learnt safe chopping techniques like claw and bridge grips. We can now peel and prepare. And, Mums and Dads, we proved we can even clean up after ourselves!
Thanks to Cathedral Academy, we got to create our masterpieces in a proper food technology kitchen and feel like proper chefs!
At the end of the afternoon, Mrs Tilly, who used to be a professional chef, wowed us with her chopping talents - she's a kitchen ninja!

Eden Camp - October 2018
Violet Class had a great time exploring the WW1 and WW2 huts at Eden Camp. It was a fantastic opportunity to discover what life might have been like for soldiers and civilians during the two World Wars. We were impressed by the huge tanks and guns, and we enjoyed testing out what it would be like in an Anderson or Morrison Shelter during an air raid!
