John Lennon and Yoko Ono - Peaceful Protest

 

Week 2:

The Swinging Sixties was the decade that shook Britain - a defining decade for Great Britain. The 60’s saw London become the capital of the world : freedom, hope and promise, anything was possible.  

Fashion - Mary Quant showed that it was acceptable for women to wear more liberating, youthful clothes. She championed the mini-skirt and psychedelic prints and vibrant colours became popular. The hippie movement gathered pace! 


Second Wave Feminism - Following Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragettes successful work for the right for women’s vote in the early 1900’s, a second wave of feminists began to become more influential: more jobs became available for women, they began to gain more independence , had more involvement in politics and thus the equal pay act passed legislation in 1970. In 1968, Barbara Castle became the first and only woman to be appointed First Secretary of State in the UK. Women had found their voice in society! 

 

The Beatles - She Loves You (1963) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S302kF8MJ-I&safe=active 

Listen to The Beatles hit single ’She Loves You’ which was released in 1963. Why do you think this song captured the imagination of the whole nation? How did it relate to young people and the youth culture that was growing all over the UK?

History Topic-Lights, Camera, Action

Throughout the summer term we shall be learning about the post war generation and how the United Kingdom blossomed during this period. We will look at 1950's culture, fashion, music and the people who heavily influenced this exciting time in recent history. We will also learn about other important events that happened around this time. 
History Task 1 - Use the knowledge organiser and photo clues to complete the timeline.
History Task 2 - 1950's. Use the website links to research life after world war 2, moving through the 1950's. You may want to mention the baby boom, financial prosperity, employment, new youth culture (music and dancing), post war immigration from Asia and West Indies.
Questions:
  1. Why was their an upsurge after the war ended in young pop culture, which included socializing, dancing, enjoying music more?
  2. Why did people have more disposable income (more money)?
  3. Why did the UK see an increase in immigration, especially from the West Indies, India and Pakistan? What impact did these different cultures bring to the UK and what legacy remains today? 
  4. What was the name of the American musician who led the Rock and Roll revolution throughout the 50's? Can you name any of his most famous songs?
  5. Can you sum up how the majority of the country felt after the war and moving through the 1950's? 
History Task 3 - Liston to the song 'Jailhouse Rock' by Elvis Presley (1957).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj0Rz-uP4Mk&safe=active
Think about what the song is about; how it makes you feel (or how it made Elvis's audience feel back in the 1950's). Does it excite you? Does it make you want to dance, sing, party? Why did Elvis become such a famous performer? Why did he appeal and reach out to millions of American and British people throughout the decade? Would you like to have lived through the 50's? If so, why?

Year 6 

Welcome to Year 6!

The children have made an excellent start to the new school year and have begun their Year 6 journey with enthusiasm and determination. This was evident during our recent outdoor adventure trip to Kingswood in north Wales. Each and every single individual showed resilience and perseverance during activities such as caving, abseiling, rock climbing and the zip line. They really pushed themselves and showed great courage throughout the week long residential.

Our Autumn topic is ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ where we will explore WW2, with a particular focus on the Blitz, D-Day and the role that women played during the war. We shall delve deep into the sacrifices different people made during the war, from soldiers on the front line, to evacuees back home.

Pupils in both classes have the potential to make Year 6 their best year yet at Hempstalls!

 

 

Kingswood Colomendy-Year 6 Residential

Take a look at the photos from our most recent trip to Kingswood Colomendy, North Wales. Year 6 had an amazing time, albeit the weather was not on their side! Our children enjoyed rafting, giant ziplining, rock climbing, orienteering and many more exciting activities.

Year 6 Autumn Term Launch Day-WW2

We have been back in time to 1939 to experience life in World War 2. We did ration tasting, art, geography and drama!
