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:
Today we performed our lypsync battle for the live 24 hour TV channel that was streamed live. Well done to all involved and for your commitment! It was great fun to watch
This morning we performed our performance poetry 'The Solider'. Well done for learning all your lines. It was a great assembly and really made us think about the impact of war on our lives and those of others.
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.
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.
