The children have written some wonderful poems of remembrance and reflection for Armistice Day which we have displayed on the fence for the village to read. This year we have ensured we have included poetry writing reflecting on points of view from soldiers from different countries.

We also visited the Smeeth War Memorial to have a moment of reflection, and we read out some of poems which we then left at the memorial for the local community to enjoy reading.

After learning about the Normans and reading about Robin Hood, in outdoor learning we made our own bows and arrows. Today we tested them out and shoot imaginary food sources!

The children were brilliant as usual when we went to see the actual battle site of the Battle of Hastings. The guide was very impressed with the children’s knowledge and answers, so went into more detail about the first battle of 1066, to add to our knowledge of the two more famous battles we had studied in class.

We have been reading the book Outlaws by Michael Morpurgo, and were inspired to make our own bows and arrows to be modern day Robin Hoods. We sourced different wood from the woods to test which will be the best for a bow, with some dead pieces of wood and some living to see if that affected the flexibility.

The Year 6 children have become Buddies of the Robins children, and will be playing, reading and helping them out as they settle into the school.

We re-enacted the Battle of Hastings, to learn about the events that led to William being crowned King. With two different armies to fight within the space of weeks, King Harold and his English army made of farmers and volunteers found it too difficult to handle William's well-trained knights.
