Going Underground…

Today, Year 6 went on a visit to the National Mining Museum to try to discover more about how mining has changed over the years. We learnt some really interesting facts from our guides, the tours, workshops and the gallery displays. Can you tell us what any of these things were:

shotfiring

trappers

snap tin

shaft

Can you summarise the pros and cons of the Mines Act of 1842?

Project Perfection!!!!!!!

BIG IDEAS BIG AMBITIONS

We went to the Post 16 centre in Retford and we got told stories about people’s lives and about difficult pasts and we were told that you can achieve whatever you believe in! After that we walked around and looked about all the stalls and all the different jobs that people can do.

ENGLISH

We started reading The Listeners poem  and doing Reciprocal Reading  for the Highwayman poem.

SCIENCE

We have been looking at how animals have evolved over time and next week we will be looking in more detail at the elephant. Post any early research here…

PROJECT PERFECTION

We enjoyed sharing our projects for our Victorians topic and looking at everyone else’s work.
