Victorian Freak Shows

The British Empire 

 

This term the children in Gandalf class have been studying the history of the British Empire. We have acknowledged and debated the reasons why it was said: 'The sun never set on the British Empire'. We also evaluated what events led to the collapse of the world's largest empire but as a result, the formation of the Commonwealth. 

World Book Day 2022. 

The children of Gandalf class created a lantern inspired by our class name. They also decorated a potato to represent their favourite book character - there was a theme of Harry Potter a book much loved by the children in our class. 

English Writing Tasks This Term.

 

The children in Gandalf class have used the famous 'Journey to Jo'Burg' book written by Beverly Naidoo as inspiration for their narrative writing. They have also used the themes in this book to develop their understanding of the 'apartheid' and inspirational figures in the civil rights movement including Martin Luther King and Maya Angelou. 

 

You will see that the children have written a persuasive letter to Mr Boase to convince him to allow the class to have a sleepover in school after SAT's. We are waiting on his response... 

What do you think? Will Gandalf have a sleepover?!

 

UPDATE 28/3/22 - Gandalf Class have persuaded Mr Boase to have a sleepover! 

World War One & Private Peaceful

This term Gandalf class have been learning about World War One. They have created some brilliant artwork based on propaganda, ship dazzle and poppies. Throughout this topic we have read Private Peaceful that is set in World War One and shows the reality of fighting on the Western Front. 

English Writing Inspired by The Call of the Wild - Jack London

 

This term Gandalf class have studied the famous adventure narrative "The Call of the Wild". They have written an adventure narrative including techniques such as action 3 (three verbs in one sentence) and SSS (short snappy sentences) to create suspense to keep the reader interested. 

 

We have also been writing diaries including lots of emotive language. They wrote in character as the famous John Thornton, who saved Buck and found the special gold rich like butter! We had fun thinking of drawings and crumpling up paper to create an authentic diary extract. 

 

Here are some examples of the writing currently displayed in the corridor. 

 

Design Technology with Caterpillar Class 8th October 2021 

 

This Friday Year 6 worked with their buddies in Reception to build house using recycled materials for a Lego character. 

 

Gandalf Class Dream Jars smiley
