On Tuesday 6th February, Year 6 visited the Garden Museum to study climate change. This was part of last term's topic but had been delayed. We were able to study the structure of plant leaves under microscopes, conduct an experiment to see how greenhouse gases cause the temperature of our planet to increase, and learn new vocabulary such as 'anthropocene'. Thank you to the adults who supported us on our trip.
This week, Willow Class attended a course at IntoUniversity. Based at Keyworth Primary School, our focus was on freedom and the abolition of slavery. We have engaged in activities exploring the lives of key abolitionists, as well as visiting the National Maritime Museum to learn about how contem-porary artists from different cultures express a sense of belonging to the community of the world. We have also found out about the wide variety of courses on offer at universities and colleges, considering what we might like to study at that point in our lives. The week culminated in a graduation today at King's College, London. We all thoroughly enjoyed our week and wish to thank the IntoUniversity staff for organising such an exciting week of events for us.
