Year 6 pupils in Zephaniah class and Brunel class had the opportunity to work with the theatre production team after they performed the 'Railway Children' to us. Wed had a fantastic time because we were able to ask lots of questions. We also found out lots information about what happened behind the scenes!

Zephaniah and Brunel classes went to @Bristol as part of our topic. We had a fantastic time. We took part in a Chemistry workshop which involved using Bunsen Bruners and a range of substances. We learned about the Periodic Table and carried out some very exciting investigations! While we were there we explored the museum and tried everything!

We invited our parents into school for our Science Open Afternoon. We completed lots of different investigations that linked to our topic, Alchemy Island. We had a great time making slime; building towers using marshmallows and spaghetti; and solving problems for the residents living on Alchemy Island.

We have been trying to personify the Plague and have used figurative language to describe it. We looked at a poem called "The River" by Valerie Bloom and used the structure to inspire us with our own poems. Here is Caitlin's magnificent work!

The Plague

The Plague is a villain, 
A wizard, an evil man,
Infecting all people,
He knows he can.

The Plague is a young boy,
Playing tricks on his friends,
As quick as a flash,
They get the message he sends.

The Plague is a ghost,
Catching people on ships,
He can spread his disease,
With a kiss on the lips.

The Plague is a cat,
Silently making his way,
He knows what to do,
Don’t think he’ll delay.

So beware of the Plague,
Now you know this,
It is a cruel way,
To give life a miss.
