Welcome back into your old classroom Year 6. We have some interesting things for you to study and research this half term before you leave us for your new schools. Enjoy your last few weeks at St Martin's and be prepared to work hard for your final goodbye performance!
Landmark of the Week Summer 2 Week 5. You've also seen this one before but be careful it has a twin.......
Landmark of the Week. Summer 2 Week 3. Think World Cup............... Lukas got this really quickly as he recognised it from last year and the fact it is in Red Square in Moscow. It is of course St Basil's Cathedral.
Landmark of the Week Summer 2 Week 3. A very famous millennial........... Paige got the Millennium Bridge this week.
Landmark of the Week Summer 2 Week 2. This week the landmark is linked to our USA geography topic...... Lukas rightly claimed this as the White House on Capitol Hill.
Landmark of the week, Summer 2 Week 1. This is a very famous fountain in a popular European city; one you will definitely have heard of and may have seen before...Paige B got the Trevi Fountain in Rome this week.
Landmark of the Week. Summer 1 Week 6. A very grand old house in Bakewell ......... Maddison again got this one through diligent research using the clue. It is, of course, Chatsworth House.
Landmark of the Week Summer 1 week 5. Not too far away another castle....... Maddison correctly identified Caenarfon Castle this week after undertaking her own research online.
Landmark of the Week Summer 1 Week 4. A very famous place to see Shakespeare plays - not in London..... Alyssa correctly found the Minnack Theatre in Porthcurno, Cornwall.
Landmark of the Week Summer 1 Week 3. This is a very famous landmark in Southern England..... Well done to Leah who correctly recognised the Uffington Horse just outside the village of Uffington in Oxfordshire.
Landmark of the Week Summer 1 Week 2. This is a local landmark that I think all of you might have seen....... but nobody recognised Lyme Cage - although Year 2 was a long time ago.
Landmark of the Week Summer 1 Week 1. Hopefully a new term will mean fresh brains so this week we have a very famous country house.....Casey recognised Windsor Castle immediately.
Landmark of the Week, Spring 2 Week 6. This is a very easy one if you look carefully..... sadly nobody got the Stockport rail viaduct over the M60 near the Blue Pyramid.
Landmark of the Week Spring 2 Week 5. An iconic landmark..... Well done to Alex who recognised Trafalgar Square, home to Nelson's column.
Landmark of the Week Spring 2 Week 4. This might be familiar to some whilst on holiday....... and it was familiar to Keira who got Conwy Castle almost immediately.
Landmark of the week - Spring 2 Week 3. Very local so I'm hopeful someone will recognise this week's building ........ Well done Harley for spotting Manchester Town Hall in Albert Square.
Landmark of the Week Spring 2 Week 2. A few Royal Weddings have happened here..... Matthew correctly identified Westminster Abbey this week.
Landmark of the Week Spring 2 Week 1. Hopefully you'll realise this famous address. Harley got 10 Downing St straight away!
Landmark of the Week - Spring 1 Week 5. As requested by Harley the landmark is back so this week is a famous building quite close to Manchester. Lysia got the Liver Building in Liverpool.
Landmark of the Week - Spring 1 Week 1. I chose a really easy one this week ..... hopefully. But then I always say that......... so it took a lot longer than expected and yes it is the entrance to the Louvre museum in Paris.
Happy New Year everyone, I hope you had a good Christmas and are all raring to go for the next half term. It's only a short one so we have lots of work to cover in a short time. Enjoy!
Merry Christmas everyone and I'll see you in the New Year.
Landmark of the Week Autumn 2 Week 6. This might be a hard one so I'll give you a clue........... It's name is part of the title of a film by Disney. Alex correctly guessed this is Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, made Disney famous after featuring in the film the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Landmark of the Week - Autumn 2 Week 5 - National treasures are kept and displayed here. This should be a really easy one.... No not easy apparently ;oD It's the National Gallery which Alex got but it is in Trafalgar Sq which nobody did.
Landmark of the Week - Autumn 2 Week 3. A very important site in WW2 ...... So far nobody has got this so the next clue is Enigma and a recent film...... Finally Alyssa found out this is the famous Bletchley Park where Alan Turing broke the Enigma code that Germany used to communicate and so saved Britain in WW2.
Landmark of the Week Autumn 2 Week 3 - built by a member of the Tudor line and frequented by Henry VIII.... Sasha correctly answered Hampton Court Palace this week
Landmark of the Week Autumn 2 Week 1. A new term and something a bit different - just over the Irish sea - the clue is the flag. Melissa correctly got the Laxey Wheel in the Isle of Man this week
Landmark of the Week Autumn 1 Week 8. A very famous Parisian landmark - this one should be really easy..... but I always say that. Harley got the Arc de Triomphe built by the Emperor Napoleon in 1806. Formerly named Place de l'Étoile — the étoile or "star" of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues.
Landmark of the week Autumn 1 Week 7. This one is much nearer to home and should be easily recognised. Liverpool is the clue .......... Micky got this eventually as the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
Landmark of the Week Autumn 1 Week 6 - this one is directly linked to our history topic. Grace got Auschwitz which is the most infamous concentration camp built by the Nazis as a solution to the "Jewish problem".
Landmark of the Week Autumn 1 Week 5 - we're travelling outside England for this one although I suspect it will be identified very quickly. Again I was proved wrong until eventually Grace discovered it is indeed the famous pyramid entrance to the Musee du Louvre in Paris.
Landmark of the Week Autumn 1 Week 4 - this one is hopefully a bit easier and more recognisable .... Alex was the only person to avoid calling this London Bridge it is Tower Bridge.
Landmark of the Week - Autumn 1 Week 3. This is a really easy one and surprisingly old .... It turned out to be not as easy as I thought as it took most of the week for the Tower of London to be correctly identified by Jacey. Very famous for being both a prison and execution site for royalty.
Landmark of the Week Autumn 1 Week 2 - another really easy one for this week again so we'll see who gets it first! Alex got the Houses of Parliament this week - well done!
Landmark of the Week - Autumn 1 Week 1 A nice easy one to start off the first half term. Kenzie got this in one - well done Kenzie!
