Year 6 ‘s amazing holiday homework!

Year 6 kept themselves very busy over the half-term holiday! They were set optional homework which included making a model of a World War II Anderson shelter; Maisy and Lydia impressed Mr Peace by including a garden with a vegetable patch! Via PowerPoints, an iPod calendar and verbal presentations, we also enjoyed finding out about our adventures in the holidays…the North Norfolk coast…London…Sweden…and we even located Isabella’s town of Clovis in California. Welcome to HOHS, Isabella!

Year 6 get ready for war

As part of their World War II theme work, Year 6 have been learning all about Anderson air-raid shelters.

They have just started building their own ‘Borrower-sized’ shelters; photos of the finished products to follow.
