Year 6 have got off to a great start this half term with their topic ‘Crime and Punishment’. We have loved looking back at how life would have been very different during the Anglo-Saxon and Viking period, and started to explore what life during the Tudor times would have been like this week. We learned it was classed as a crime to be homeless and the Tudor vagrants would often be whipped, or even sentenced to death, if they were found on the streets!
In this lesson, we studied a woodcutting primary source of evidence which illustrated a Tudor village scene with a vagrant being whipped and lead through the streets on a leash. We then made reasonable judgements and used our inference skills to explore what we could see happening in the woodcutting.

Year 2 have been learning about Space exploration this term in History, specifically focussing on the significant individuals Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake. This week we created a timeline of Space Exploration events.
To help us gain a better understanding of the Ancient Egyptians, we have been looking at where on the timeline, this civilisation existed. We learned of other ancient civilisations that existed simultaneously to the Egyptians and today we were exploring the commonalities of them. We examined primary and secondary sources of evidence to discuss, discover and deduce facts about the Ancient civilisations of Sumer, Indus Valley, Shang and Egypt.
This afternoon are classrooms were full of lively discussion as we listened proudly to our young historians making connections and drawing their own conclusions as to what made a civilisation.
As part of the WWII topic in year 3, the children have been learning about The Blitz. They investigated cities in the UK that were bombed and were able to suggest reasons for this. For example, because of the city’s location or industry. They discussed what life would have been like during The Blitz and understood it’s importance in terms of the course of the war.
We designed and made some ‘Poppy Wreaths’ as a mark of respect for Remembrance Day.
