Reconciliation Sculptures

Thursday, 23 October 2014

Today Mrs Haughey and I both walked in to Year 6 and were truly impressed. I knew straight away without being told what it was they had been asked to re-create – the Reconciliation sculpture to be found in the old Coventry Cathedral. The inscription on which says
“In 1995 fifty years after the end of the Second World War this sculpture has been given as a token of reconciliation, an identical sculpture has been placed on behalf of the people of Coventry in the Peace Garden, Hiroshima, Japan
Both sculptures remind us that in the face of destruction forever human dignity and love will triumph over disaster and bring nations together in respect and peace.”

We all feel that this terms topic on WW2 has truly inspired the pupils to produce some amazing work, well done year 6.

Krystal Maze Maths Challenge

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

This morning Year 1 and 2 were put into teams of five. They were asked to complete 15 mathematic challenges and for each one completed successfully they were given a crystal.
Each crystal they gained gave the team extra time to search in the crystal pool to find as many dominoes as they could, the team with the most spots won.
We have run this event for a few years, our pupils always enjoy a fun morning of problem solving and love diving into the pool for the dominoes. All the pupils worked really well in their teams, it was a really good morning.

War and Reconciliation

Friday, 3 October 2014

The class assembly today showcased perfectly Year 6’s learning, using this terms topic “War and reconciliation,” it covered many aspects of World War 2 and Coventry in particular. It was evident from the depth of the detail on show, how much insight the pupils had gained from all the trips and research.
Parents were treated to a variety of written displays all based around the evacuation. Lots of different writing genres were used, diary extracts, persuasive letters and note taking to help the children understand how difficult it was for families to be split up.

The pupils were also able to include a shadow theatre based on their science topic “light and how it travels” portraying Coventry during the blitz. A video of this is available to view on the school learning platform.
A lot of the children were especially interested in operation “Moonlight Sonata” when over an 11 hour period on the night of November 14th, 500 bombers attacked Coventry. Their trip to Coventry Cathedral highlighting just how much destruction had occurred that night.
It was an informative assembly, which we hope the parents who attended enjoyed. The turnout was brilliant and the children rose to the occasion and gave a confident and polished performance. A good start to the year, well done Year 6.
