Year 6 Book Week 2022

For Book Week, Year 6 have been looking at the story of ‘The Brave Tin Soldier’ by Hans Christian Andersen. This is a story about 25 tin soldiers who were made from an old tin spoon – they were all alike, except for one, who had one leg because they ran out of tin. The story looks at how the tin soldier still stands as tall as the rest of his 24 other brothers, despite being different.

As a year group, we discussed the differences that might make us different from the rest of the class and explored the moral of the story: it is okay to be different.

The children designed their own tin soldiers and each one had to have a unique characteristic (e.g., one leg, one arm). At the end of the week, we made our characters come to life by using tin foil to create them.

On Friday, children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite character from a book to celebrate World Book Day.
