Year six have been working with the Warner Textile Archive to find out about different sewing techniques, decoration and embroidery. The children made their artwork based on Pandora's box which we have been studying in English and across other curriculum subjects.

Maples had a great week learning about Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds.  We learned a lot about mental health and explored different ways we can help manage our emotions and feel positive.  We looked at healthy foods and tried lots of unusual fruit and vegetables that are healthy snacks.  We were very surprised at the sugar content of some of our favourite drinks.  We did lots of fitness and physical activity all week, culminating in our Sports Morning on Friday.  The children all worked very hard and encouraged each other to be the best they could was fantastic that the class had the most points of the Year 6 classes and that Courtney and Orlaith won the individual prizes for Year 6.

Year six have recently made pillows in design and technology: they had to come up with a design to do with World War 2. The children decided to either complete 2, 4 or 6 boxes on their material. When they had their design they transferred it onto their pillows and then used back and running stitch to sew around the pictures, words and letters they had drawn. Once they had completed the sewing they were able to colour in their designs with fabric crayons and pens. Finally, they stuffed the pillows and sealed them up using blanket stitch.
