1960s Fashion and Music

This week we have learned about fashion and music from the 1960s. We loved looking at the different styles and enjoyed designing our own clothing inspired by these various styles. Which was your favourite: Flower power, hippy style, geometric, space age or maybe mods or rockers? We found out more about The Beatles and enjoyed singing and using instruments to accompany the song, ‘She Loves You’.


We have used all our 1960s knowledge to write a non-chronological report about the 1960s. We remembered to write in full sentences, used correct punctuation, used the correct tense (with a few reminders about was and were!) and tried to use a range of conjunctions to extend our sentences. We focused on the correct features of non- fiction such as writing an introduction, using subheadings and writing in paragraphs.


The children have really enjoyed learning about fractions this week. We have looked at fractions of shapes and have started to think about fractions of quantities and equivalence.

Can you show your grown up, how to find one half, one quarter or even three quarters of this shape using the bar model method?

Have a look at these photos taken today. We had to sort the different images according to the fraction they showed.

Have a go at creating your own fraction flags using the link below.

Enjoy your long weekend! See you all again on Tuesday!

    Your fraction work looks really interesting! Charlie has enjoyed playing fraction flags!
    Sounds as if you have learnt lots about the 1960s Charlie played us the Beatles song on the xylophone!

    Ashwin has been singing the beetles song “she loves you” all weekend. He has been working with fractions at home and sharing his chocolate in quarters with his sister.
