Welcome back to Term 6!
We are continuing our World War 2 theme this term, there is still lots to learn! We will be looking at mould and micro-organisms in science and learning to draw figures in art. We will be practicing our track and field sports ready for sports day, practicing our singing for the KS2 performace and taking care if our 'Oldmixon in Bloom' plants - busy busy busy!!
We've made a great start back to the term. Take a look below to see some of the things we've been up to...
As part of our Micro-organisms topic in science, we have made compost pots! We will be observing the changes to the materials over the next few weeks and investigating what is happening!
We went onto the field to collect natural materials. We worked in groups and made sure we all helped.
We have been observing how the materials have changed over the week. The main changes we noticed were...
- There is water and condensation on the sides of the pot
- The grass and leaves have changed colour from bright green to darker green and brown
- The compost pots are smelly!
- There are some bugs in our pots

All About World War 2
This week we have been learning about Rationing. We looked at which items were rationed, why rationing had to happen and the impact it had on people's lives. We discovered that not only food was rationed, but food and other things too! Do you know any facts about rationing?
We studied World War 2 rationing posters and thought about why they were made and how they changed people's opinions about rationing. We decided which ones we liked best and had a go at designing our own.
Which ones do you like best?
Building Anderson Shelters
Over the past few weeks the children have been working hard on their Anderson Shelter projects and they are looking great! All sorts of materials have been used to create some fantastic effects (see if you can spot the tea bags!)
Oldmixon in Bloom update...
The sun has been shining down and some of our plants are beginning to flower, let's hope the warm weather continues!
Thank you to everyone who has helped us out by sending in plants, seeds and pots, we really appreciate it! We have been getting our hands dirty doing lots of planting and digging, now we're just hoping for some sunshine to help them grow!
Have a look at what we did...
Pop up on to the decking to see if our plants are growing!
