We have arrived.
Year 6 have arrived safely in France and are now settling in to where they will stay for an amazing week away.
The whole school looks forward to seeing what they will get up to.
Today we have been using our discussion plans and writing from last week to have a debate around the question: should Grandad be sent to a care home or not?
We had a lot of relevant points to argue!
At the moment we are reading The Memory Cage by Ruth Eastham. It talks about how memories can create problems for people.
For example, Grandad in the book has Alzheimer’s disease and forgets things.
We have been researching Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. If you have any questions, ask us or visit alzheimers.org.uk
The casting of the play has finally been announced and rehearsals have started. We are all very excited and nervous but we know we are going to produce a mind-blowing, tear-jerking show!
See how we can use compound adjectives too!
Year 6 took part in a mock trial organised by some Magistrates who visited us. We had to recreate a real court and take our roles very seriously. The defendant was found guilty!
We have been studying the Memory Cage and are going to write a discussion about whether Grandad should be put into a care home. For this, we will need to find out more about the disease. Use these links to help you:
As part of our science topic, we observed the different types of leaves in the school grounds. We looked carefully to see the different parts of the leaves and drew them with lots of detail.
