In year 6, we have been looking closely at the themes explored in Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have carried out class debates and used the book to write letters in role of the character, Michael. The children have loved reading the book so far and are excited to see what happens next.


In Science, the children have been looking at the heart and its role in the circulatory system. They had great fun planning and conducting their own scientific ‘blood smoothie’ experiments – learning about the products found in our blood. We carefully measured each ingredient into our beakers, according to the percentage which each component is found in our bodies.
