NARWHALS and ORCAS
We are taking a well earned break from homework until after the Half Term holiday
During Christian Aid Week 2022, everyone in the school has been learning about Christian Aid and their work to support people living in poverty and tackling injustice. In Narwhals, we have been learning about the climate crisis and climate justice. We responded to what we have learnt by taking part in the Christian Aid Letters for Creation initiative. Here is some of our fantastic work:
Year 6 recently ventured back into Victorian Norfolk with a day at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. We donned our costumes to take part in a Victorian Murder Mystery as we followed the clues to unravel the mystery of Annie Rudd and how she came to meet her end.
Along the way, the children learnt about living in and running the Workhouse and how people in Victorian times could suddenly find themselves out of work and cast out from their homes. We looked at the differences between the lives of rich and poor and how technology and the Industrial Revolution could make and break fortunes. A great day was had by all, leaving us feeling very fortunate to live in our modern and kinder age.
This term we are venturing back to the Victorian Era in our learning. In our writing we have explored the story of Shadow Play and learnt how family was not always what it seemed in Victorian times. We enjoyed reading your brilliant "writing in voice" as you captured to clipped tones of Aunt Sophie. Indeed!
We learnt about how the Industrial Revolution brought great riches for some and hardship for others in the loss of their craft. In Computing we celebrated the work of Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace in designing the first computers and writing the first computer programs - all made from brass and wood and running on hand cranked power.
In the second half-term we are continuing our Victorian learning in History and English. We studied the 1845 poem The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, looking at its Gothic themes and how this style of writing influences modern classics such as Dracula and Frankenstein.
