We have been learning about the Maya and in Art have been learning about the significance of Mayan masks. The Maya originally used their masks to protect their faces in battle and to strike fear into the hearts of their opponents. We used paper to construct different layers on our masks to represent the different carved features that we saw, and chalk to help us recreate the vibrant colours that many of the masks used.
Have you ever heard of the amazing lady daredevil, Annie Edson Taylor? A retired teacher in desperate need of a get-rich-quick scheme, she was the first person to ever go over the Niagara Falls in a barrel, and live to tell the tale! Year 6 have been writing biographies about the woman who managed to conquer the Falls, and were lucky enough to have a visit from the lady herself to help enrich their writing.
Year 6 pupils thoroughly enjoyed their stay at PGL, where they took part in a range of exciting activities in the beautiful Surrey countryside. The activities were a great opportunity for the pupils to develop independence, co-operative skills and learn how to work successfully as part of a team!

On Wednesday 27th June, Year 6 were lucky enough to have a special visitor come to speak to us in our school. PC Nicholls, who is a police officer with 20 years of experience, spent the day talking to year six pupils! He visited to inform us about what his job involves and to tell us some valuable facts about the law. For example, you can be arrested at the age of 10 (would you believe it!) We enjoyed hearing stories about some of the adventures he has had as a police officer in Tower Hamlets- some of us even got to try his police vest and hat on.
