Below is a copy of this week's science homework on adaptation. It is due in on Friday 7th July.

For our geography homework last week, we had to research one of the states of the USA and present our research in whatever way we wanted. Julia decided to make a Monopoly board all about the state of Nevada. In her game, she has included neighbouring states, major cities, rivers, mountain ranges, stations and airports. She made the whole board, printed out the money and made 'Community Chest' and 'Chance' cards with extra facts. Some of 6H played a game of 'Monopoly Nevada Edition' at lunchtime today and we'll continue playing it next week. Below are some photos of the game and Julia presenting it to the whole school in assembly today. Well done Julia, an *amazing *piece of homework!

This evening, Hafsa and Antoniya both gave a speech to the parents of the reception pupils who will be joining in September. This involved standing up and speaking to about 100 adults in the school hall and telling them all about Walker School. Both girls were confident, clear and spoke very loudly. Below are some photos of them presenting. Thank you for volunteering, Hafsa and Antoniya.

We have finished making our cars as part of our DT unit on moving vehicles. They look absolutely brilliant and definitely reflect our personalities. Below are photos of each of us holding our car and some blurry photos of our drag race!

Today, we had a visitor from Transport for London. They talked to us about how to stay safe on our city's transport system and how to be a good and responsible transport user. Below are some pictures of our session.

Today, we had a 6H Pets' Corner! Tom brought in his three gerbils and two guinea pigs and gave us a talk about their history and how to care for them. We were able to stroke the guinea pigs and some people were even able to hold the gerbils. In the afternoon, Thomas was able to bring in his dog, Tammy, and give us a talk about her history and how he cares for her. We were all able to stroke Tammy, if we wished, and she was very excited to see us all. Below are some photos of the pets and their owners giving talks. A huge thank you to Elaine and Anne for allowing their beloved pets to come in and meet 6H - we really enjoyed it.

This afternoon, 6H visited Arnos Park. We have been working towards this treat for the last term. We have earned 104 playing cards, as part of our class's behaviour reward system, to reach our goal of going to the park. We had a great time - have a look at some of the photos below.

Today, Year 6 went to Epping Forest Field Centre for a science trip. We had a fantastic day. We took part in a classification of trees activity, which involved us measuring trees' heights by looking through our legs, measuring their girth and naming them. We then went on a mini-beast hunt and found a wide variety of invertebrates (with quite a lot of squealing). Finally we went pond-dipping. Oh, and there just happened to be a special visitor at the centre too... There are two sets of photos below: the first set are with HRH Prince Harry and the second set show the extremely royal 6H in a forest!

Today, Year 6 experienced a World War 2 day to finish off our topic. We got to experience a 1940s schoolroom in the morning and then go shopping in the afternoon. We had a brilliant morning, experiencing being 'caned', writing with ink pots and pens, writing on slate boards and even singing the national anthem. In the afternoon, some of us became shopkeepers and some of us became shoppers. We were able to use our ration books in the shops but were often stopped by the police, to show our identity cards. It was a great way to end our topic and a huge thank you to Ethan and Haroon's mums for helping in the afternoon. Below are some photos of our day, you may even spot the moment an air raid siren went off.

We're almost at the end of our drama unit on Hamlet. In our most recent session, a group of travelling actors arrived at Elsinore Castle to put on a play. Hamlet designed the play 'The Mousetrap' to try and trap King Claudius. To create an evening of entertainment, we divided into groups and all performed. We had the royal family, some dancers, some chefs, some artists, some guards, 'The Mousetrap' actors and even a compere - Matthew! We performed brilliantly - King Claudius didn't enjoy the evening at all. Below are some pictures of us performing. We're looking forward to finding out the ending this week.

Consequently, Hamlet has decided to put on an 'Antic Disposition' whilst spying on King Claudius. Below are some photos from today's drama session. You may spot some strange hairstyles and clothing being worn in unusual ways - some of us were playing the part of Hamlet when he went to visit Ophelia. We look a little odd but it's all part of our learning!

We're beginning to realise how incredibly talented Stephen is! Our next step is to draw our final piece.

This week, Tom brought in a real-life gas mask from World War 2. This special type of gas mask was designed for babies - they were placed inside it! It was his grandmother's, when she was a baby during the war. However, she never actually used it. Tom spoke to us about the gas mask and we even borrowed a doll from Reception, to place inside it. It was a great example of living history, thanks for sharing it with us Tom.
