Term 3

Happy New Year!

 

We cannot believe we are in 2022 and are very excited about our topic this term – The Great Plague. Rats! Fleas! Plague masks! We will be exploring all elements of the plague that devastated the UK in 1665.

 

This term our PE days remain the same - Monday and Thursday. Please come to school in your PE kit (black trousers/shorts, trainers, plain white t-shirt and your year 6 blue jumper).

 

 

 

Remember, we are not at the disco (however much we want to be). Please only wear a watch and studs. All other jewellery/hair accessories should be left at home.

 

This term on a Thursday morning, Mrs H and Dr Fletcher will continue to be covering PPA, teaching Science, Spanish, Spellings and Art.

On a Thursday afternoon, Corey will be covering Miss Cameron during her phase leadership time.

The Great Plague - hook

Week beginning 03.01.22

 

Happy New Year!

It is now 2022!!!!!

 

    Even though we have only been at school 3 days, we have learnt so much.

    This week we have been studying our topic the Black Death, also known as the plague. It is a toxic disease which is spread by infected rats that were infected with fleas. The rats then carried it through the city, bringing death among the population.

    On the Great Plague day, we learnt about the symptoms of the bubonic plague which are nausea, abdominal pains, vomiting, diarrhea, extreme weakness, black blotches on skin, bubo and chills and fevers – then we acted them out.

    This Wednesday we played a game, it was a game about the plague. There were 3-5 fleas, at least 2 rats and 2 humans. We had to get through the obstacle course without being infected. The fleas had to get the rats by catching them and then they can catch a human.

    Plague doctors wore crow masks as they thought it would keep diseases away from their face.

 

Week beginning: 10.01.22

 

On Monday we did counter balances in gymnastics. Counter balances are a balance which you do in partners.

 

On Wednesday we had a discussion which was about 3 children Catherine, Tessa and Dan from a book called Children of Winter.

 

On Thursday we played 2v2 in football - if you won you would move up towards the Champions League, if you lost you would move down away from the Champions League. In English we started writing a diary entry imagining we are Catherine, stuck in a barn during the plague.
