Anti-Bullying Week - I am so proud of how mature, understanding and respectful our children have been in relation to Anti-Bullying Week discussions. At St. Bernards, we fully promote equality regardless of our differences and as God's children, we pride ourselves on treating everybody as equals. Our assigned class focus this year was Homophobia and here is a sample of the WONDERFUL posters created by our class - Well done Year 6 and thank you for your efforts in promoting this message!
Science - Forces - We had great fun investigating the difference between weight and mass, using Newton Meters with a plastic bag to measure the weight of various objects (eg apple, book, tennis ball). FYI weight, measured in Newtons (N), is how hard gravity is pulling the object down.
As part of our WW2 History unit, we studied the Dunkirk Evacuation and considered whether it was a success, given that 68,000 soldiers lost their lives. Following a very interesting and informative class discussion, we used drama to re-enact the plight of the Allied forces.
In May 1940, Germany advanced into France.
The Allied troops are trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk.
British and French sodiers wait on the beach to be rescued.
Operation Dynamo began on 26th May.
The 'Little Ships' began to rescue the soldiers.
Winston Churchill and his advisors expected to rescue around 25,000 soldiers.
In total, 68,000 lives were lost, however 338,000 soldiers were rescued!
90,000 were taken prisoner and the bulk of tanks and heavy guns were left behind.
