The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Knowledge Organiser

This term we are using the book 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' by Brain Selznick as a driver for our learning. The story is about a boy called Hugo who lives in a Paris train station. He is working to repair an automaton, which he thinks will write him a secret message.

Throughout this unit we will be exploring how leisure and entertainment changed during the 20th century. 

Royal Navy Visit - 26.03.24

Year 6 were visited by the Royal Navy to take part in some problem solving activities. Throughout the morning they had to build a 6ft communication tower in groups. They needed to use their teamwork and communication skills to do this and to make sure it didn't fall over! Then, the children had the opportunity to build their own flares and launch them into the air! 

Outdoor Learning 

This term in outdoor learning, Year 6 have been building shelters. Working in groups they were given the task to build a waterproof shelter in our outdoor learning area. They only equipment they were given was a tarpaulin sheet and some rope. We then tested whether their shelter was waterproof and would protect them if they needed to use it!
