We started the year off with our Peasants, Princes and Pestilence Topic, learning about what life was like in England during the time of the Black Death.
We started off with a visit from Pestilence himself before learning more about the symptoms and treatments for the plague before finishing our topic with a fantastic trip to the village of Eyam in Derbyshire. A village which played such a crucial role in stopping the spread of the deadly disease.
Take a look at what we got up to over the half term ...
Interviews for a villain to steal the moon.
Please see the gallery page to see our candidates being interviewed for the post of 'Villain to steal the moon'. The interviews were the culmination of our work on persuasive writing. The children wrote letters to the bank manager of the Bank of Evil from Despicable Me to ask him for an interview and the chance to get the funding to steal the moon. The children created villain alter-egos and provided long lists of dastardly deeds that they had undertaken in their criminal past.
Well done to everyone who took part.
