This morning Miss Cash and Miss Edward’s group have been using the Michael Morpurgo version of the Pied Piper to help us understand the Robert Browning poem from the perspective of a minor character. How do. You think the little boy felt when the rats arrived? How did he feel when the rats disappeared?
This morning we had a debate about the ending of the story of The Pied Piper. We discussed whether the Pied Piper was justified in his actions and whether revenge is ever a good solution. What do you think about the two characters?
This week we have started reading ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson as part of our new topic about South America. This afternoon we have been thinking about what Maia (the main character) might have been able to see when looking out of her new window.
In Year 6 Maths and English lessons we have been checking our targets to make sure that we are meeting them. These are the targets for the end of Year 6. What have you achieved this term? What would you like to work on next term?
Today we pretended to be the Pied Piper receiving a letter from the Mayor of Hamelin, saying that he would not be paying him for ridding the town of the rats. We decided to write a persuasive (and little bit angry) reply, asking for the money. Can you spot any persuasive techniques that we have used?
This week we have been applying our shape knowledge to coordinates and nets. This morning we have been trying some tricky visualising problems. What different vocabulary do we use for 2D and 3D shapes?
