Year 6 created and explored VR worlds that were based on an imagined disaster trip to PGL. They chose settings, added characters, props, audio and pictures, before adding to code to make the characters speak, think and move!


Year 6 have just  had a cooking session with Andy from Cooking @ The Stonehouse who delivers Jamie’s Ministry of Food cooking lessons in and around the Bradford area, today! They discussed the different food types and their effects on the body before making and eating healthy chicken fajitas!


On Wednesday 20th June to Friday 22nd June, Year 6 visited the PGL Centre in Grantham. Check out what we got up to on Twitter! www.twitter.com/thorpebradford


In Art, we had a go at forced perspective which is a technique which employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. The children used iPads around the school and the playgrounds to think of and take their own pictures.

Year 6 worked with Danny from the Bradford Cyber Team. They looked at cyber bullying, including what it can involve, its effects and ways of dealing with it. Amongst the activities, they played Chinese Whispers to demonstrate how rumours spread.

In Geography, Year 6 had to work cooperatively in groups to plan out a modern settlement, using a budget of £500,000,000. They looked at different plans and types on the internet, and had to think about housing, roads, leisure facilities, open-spaces, natural features and public facilities.
