Local Magistrates visit our class

This morning, three local magistrates came to our class and told us all about the work they do and the consequences of committing a crime.  Do you recognise any of them?

We had to put crimes in order of seriousness.

Macbeth - the battle scene

Class 6 put their homemade swords to good use today. We gathered ideas for our descriptive writing by looking at pictures of a battle, describing sights, sounds and smells and then acting out the battle. The Scottish were victorious against the Norwegians and Macbeth was duly rewarded with the title Thane of Cawdor.
Next come the witches .........

Firework Maths

Mrs Dickinson did a brilliant maths investigation with us this afternoon.  We had to predict, test and evaluate the best sparklers.  We gave them a 'Sparkle Factor' and gave reasons why we chose the ones we preferred.
