Term 1 in CLASS 6...
What a start to the 2019-20 academic year! Class Six have dived head first into the smoggy world of Victorian Britain and blasted off into outer space in our Science lessons.
We've been absolutely loving reading the adventures of Baker Street's number one sleuth Sherlock Holmes - we've solved the case of the Speckled Band, seen a centuries old curse lifted from the Baskerville family and tracked down England's most famed thoroughbred in the Silver Blaze. Class Six are also writing their own, thrilling, Sherlock-inspired detective stories.
In our Science Lessons we have been exploring our Solar System, finding out about the planets and the orbital relationship between the Earth, Sun and Moon.
And not forgetting of course our Topic Studies - we've been lurking in the Backstreets of the murky, Dickensian world that is Victorian Britain. Finding out about the differences between Rich and Poor families, the sort of jobs that poor Victorian children had to do and the Victorian education system.
