Autumn 1 - Berlin Wall Blog


We had a fantastic first half term in Hawthorn Class. Our Berlin Wall topic was an amazing journey delving into post war Germany.  We explored putting a Wall up and the restrictions it caused. Some of us became guards to keep order in the classroom.  We even had a few children working for the Gestappo!  

Our adventurous maths topics have covered some great challenges, we have explored recombining numbers to help with our calculations and some fantastic multiplying including very large numbers and very small decimals!

Some of us managed to crack Mr Osmond’s year six reasoning challenge on the Berlin Wall showcasing our formal methods of arithmetic.

In English, we wrote some emotive diary entries and imagined what it was like to plan an escape from East Berlin to the West.  We took notes from our research and created power point presentations to show the importance of some of the meetings between the allies and how they divided Europe. 

Our Art and Music featured Pink Floyd who sang the famous ‘another brick in the wall’ and of course in art we looked at some graffiti.   Mr Richie, our Art teacher, was very brave and allowed the children to Graffiti on their early morning work books, Miss Clayton found out about it on the Monday morning! Apparently not knowing the art is going to suddenly appear is half the fun!!
