Weird and wonderful WW1 facts!

Good afternoon Year 6!

We’re really looking forward to reading your pieces of writing about World War 1 at the end of the week.

I imagine you have found many interesting facts as you’ve been carrying out your research.

I came across a couple of weird and wonderful facts myself which I thought I would share…

  • Many people suffered facial injuries during WW1. As plastic surgery was primitive, artists created copper masks to hide the injuries. The masks were held on by glasses and painted to match each soldier’s skin tone. Some even featured eyelashes made from curled metal. How interesting!
  • Effective gas masks did not exist at the start of the war. The only protection soldiers had against gas attacks was a cloth, often an old sock, soaked in their own urine. Wow!

Can you share any strange facts that you have learned about WW1?

Year 6 WW1 class assembly

On Thursday, both 6M and 6W showed off their knowledge of WW1 by performing in a class assembly for children, teachers and families.

They told the story of how the Great War began, which countries were involved, what life was like for the soldiers in the trenches and how we remember the war today. This was all shown by acting, singing and poetry reading.

We hope everybody enjoyed watching!

My Christmas Holidays!

During my Holidays I didn’t do many things but it was still really fun!

Seeing as I don’t celebrate Christmas, for the first few days I just played on my ipad.

After Christmas we went on lots of shopping adventures. Sometimes to The Fort, sometimes to the Tesco this may not sound fun, but there was always something that made us crack up laughing.

Then days passed and passed the same way shopping and playing every day, until finally it was New Years Eve. I was sooo excited. Me and my sister wanted to stay up until 12 o clock, but my mum didn’t allow this. She said your sister already looks like a panda with dark circles under her eyes we don’t want you to look the same. We pleaded and begged and finally she said ok. So we stayed up and watched the countdown on TV . When it turned 12 o clock fireworks blasted into the sky sizzling and crackling. It made me smile so much, but in the middle of watching the fireworks I fell asleep. I had an amazing dream that night.

The next day (In the middle of watching TV), I remembered it was school on Monday, I sighed and carried watching TV.

Renewable and non renewable energy

Renewable energy

Renewable energy is when the energy can be used again and again. The three types of renewable energies are hydro, solar and wind. Solar energy is when solar panels get the heat from the Sun and turn it into electricity, so that’s how we get electricity. Solar energy never runs out because the Sun is heating it all the time. Solar energy gives us 10% of our overall energy. Wind energy is when a wind  turbine is spinning it’s blades and the magnets inside of it spin around too. This is wind energy. Wind energy gives us 40% of our overall power. If there is no Sun or no wind one day then that’s when hydro energy comes in. Hydro energy is when a flowing river or stream goes down a pipe and then a water turbine spins the water around and creates electricity.This gives us 50% of our energy.

Non renewable energy

Most of our electricity comes from power stations that use fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas to make the energy. This is called non renewable energy because you can’t make any more of it and it will eventually run out. Unfortunately, burning fossil fuels produce gases like carbon dioxide and methane which may cause global warming.
