Dear Class 14!
I hope you are all well and staying safe.
I will be updating your learning from home tasks soon, ready for next week. In the meantime look after yourselves and your families.
Thinking of you all. Take care.
Altru Theatre Visit
Today, we enjoyed a performance by the Altru Theatre Company. We learnt about internet safety and how important it is to
check our privacy settings. After the performance, we took part in a workshop, working in groups to prepare and perform our own
3 minute internet safety plays.
The Year of The Word
He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” ( Matthew 31-33)
We thought about what these words mean to us. We designed posters to illustrate the meaning of the parable, highlighting the achievements of people who have lived out the word of the Lord. Our artwork shows ourselves, surrounded by the quote from scripture and our own interpretation of Jesus’ teaching. We also decorated a paper cup with symbols, words and phrases that capture the essence of the parable. We have each planted a mustard seed, which we are going to nurture, and watch it grow into a strong plant.
Our Trip To Tatton Park
We had a fabulous day, stepping back to Anglo Saxon and Viking times at Tatton Park or Tatter's Ton, as it was called then. We met Lord Blood-axe, a Viking warrior, and Elsa and Etta, who were Anglo Saxon villagers. They taught us how to weave and bake bread. We also took part in shield training and attended a witten meeting.
Welcome back Class 14!
I'm sure you'll work hard and be a fabulous Year 6 class!
We looked at a variety of replica items from the past. In our groups we discussed what period of history they might have come from, what the objects might be used for, who might use them, what they were made from and how they might have been made. We recorded our ideas as we moved from object to object. We then shared and discussed each group’s ideas.
We found out that all the items were from the Anglo Saxon period.
We then went to the Whole School Timeline to place the Anglo Saxons in History.
