Trip to Beamish

The children had a fantastic day at Beamish Museum. They explored the 1900's village, went down into the mines, had fun on the old-fashioned fair and took part in a Victorian style lesson. The children planned a recount throughout the day.

Letter from Jim Jarvis

The children wrote a letter in the role of Jim Jarvis, who is the main character from our topic book 'Street Child', to his sisters discussing events that have happened in the story. Below is an example of one of our children's fabulous work.
Fantastic Mr Fox debate.

Last week, the children celebrated Roald Dahl day. We looked at the Fantastic Mr Fox debate and came up with ideas to support our argument. The children discussed two phrases, 'stealing is never justifiable' and 'eating any living thing is morally wrong.' They worked in small groups, thinking of arguments both for and against. At the end of the session, the children enjoyed sharing their ideas and debating with each other.

Spring Term

As part of our Mayan topic, the year 6 children designed their own traditional Mayan mask. They followed their designs to create a 3D mask using mosaics.
