Year 6 40s and 50s Dress Up Day

During our 1940s and 1950s topic, Year 6 were lucky enough to be visited by some ex-Cherry Orchard pupils. They spoke to us about how school life was different during the fifties and told us all about Cherry Orchard.

Year 6 have investigated 1950s fashion and really enjoyed getting all dressed up! We even learnt how to dance to rock and roll music! We have read some classic Tolkien extracts and explored famous inventions, such as Mr Potato Head, Barbie and Lego. In maths, we practised using imperial measurements and converting them to the modern metric system.
