Our learning

Autumn Term 2- Our topic question is "Who wants to swap with a Victorian?"

 

Here are some of the thing we have learnt this half term:

 

 

9th November 2018

 

Well, we have had a busy week out and about exploring our local area this week.  We've been to the art gallery this week to work with an international artist.

 

Then on Thursday we visited Prittlewell Priory and the house of the Scratton Family where we got to find out more about the Victorian way of life.  We will be writing out reports soon.

  

 

On Friday we took our hand made poppies to go and visit the War memorial for Southend.  We held a 2 minute silence to remember those that had fought for our country.

 

 

7.11.18

Today we used Innobots to explore how to use coding to make them move, turn, make noises and control their lights.

Please see our poem below to practice for our poetry performance:

If I should die, think only this of me:
   That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England.  There shall be
   In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
   Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s, breathing English air,
   Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
   A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
     Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
   And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
     In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
