Event - Year 6 Divergent Day

22 October 2014

To celebrate the end of our Big Idea: 'What effect do dictatorships have on society?,' Year 6 organised a 'Divergent Day.' 'Divergent thinking' is when your brain thinks in many different ways, usually 'outside of the box.'

On our special day, we took part in many activities based on the novel 'Divergent' by Veronica Roth (this had been our focus all half term).

We dressed up in our faction's colours from the book and enhanced our debating, art and history skills.

There was also a lot of teamwork to complete the tricky but fun tasks. At the end of the day, we evaluated our learning so that we could improve ready for our next set of learning!
