Crime and Punishment for Year 6!

Earlier on in the term, Year 6 spent a fascinating morning at the Lock-Up Museum in Steelhouse Lane. Here, besides sitting in some cells and exploring Crime and Punishment in Birmingham through the last 100 years, the pupils looked at artefacts, police resources, the change in uniforms and development of technology in the years since the Lock Up first opened.

World War I

On 23rd October, Year 6 travelled to The National War Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, in order to learn about and reflect on the (factual) stories of War associated with Great Britain. We read about and heard some of the real events that have taken place within the last 100 years that now impact upon our own lives in 2018. 

Here are some of the pictures taken while at the NWA. More will follow, along with some of the thoughts and comments from the group.

Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page

 

Our Visit To Nottingham Prison

 

In mid-September, the whole class set out on a journey...way back into the crime, punishment and laws of the old city of Nottingham.

We had an amazing day of learning at The Galleries Of Justice where we took an active part in a Court scene. Later on in the day, we met a jailer who shared some of the traditions and rules of the Prison that we toured. 

We journeyed back along the M42 later that day, rather thankful for the reforms that were passed by Law in the years since those times in the dark, cold and crowded cells deep under the ground at Nottingham. We would expect that in our present world, no governments in the world would allow for the harsh environments and the cruel punishments that were permitted 200 years ago in England.

 

 

 

You too can make a visit to The Galleries of Justice (now called The National Justice Museum) in Nottingham. It is a truly amazing place to be! See link below for further information.

Welcome to Year 6, with Miss Lynch and Mr Brindley, Mrs Kaur and Miss Leddy.

 

Throughout the year the children will be taking part in an enriched and exciting curriculum which we are looking forward to delivering. We will also be building strong links between home and school: working together to provide the best for your child’s education.

 

Home learning is very important and links in with what the children are learning within the classroom. Therefore it essential that it is completed.

 

PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Full PE kit must be worn: White polo shirt, Black shorts and Black pumps. Hair must be tied back and no jewellery should be worn.

14th September: Welcome to Year 6 meeting for parents; 2:45pm
