KS2 Visit the Theatre
On Wednesday 4th December, Y4, 5 and 6 attended their enrichment trip. This term, the children were able to experience the wonders of the West End as we travelled into London to watch the matinee performance of Disney’s ‘The Lion King’.
For many of our children, they have never had the opportunity to visit the theatre or experience a west end production so we felt very lucky that we were able to take our Y4,5 and 6 pupils. Looking around the theatre, there were lots of faces filled with awe and wonder as the children witnessed a stunning theatrical experience, exploring culture from around the world and understanding the concept of the ‘Circle of life’.
One of our pupils told us that it “was the best thing I have ever seen in my life!”
Tower of London Trip
On Monday the 14th of October, Year 6 visited the Tower of London to further investigate crime and punishment through the ages. On our visit, we saw plenty of interesting things including the Crown Jewels, the White Tower and the Bloody Tower.
We learnt about how the Tower was used as a prison, the mysterious disappearance of two princes, the significance of the Crown Jewels and the Legend of the Tower Ravens – we even managed to spot three of them!
Take a look at some of our photos from the day:

Roman Curse Tablets
In our Crime and Punishment learning adventure, we discovered that in the Roman times (43 to 410 AD) there was no police force.
Unfortunately, if the victim was unable to catch the criminal themselves and bring them to court, there was little hope of justice. Therefore, the victims often turned to the Roman gods for help instead by writing curse tablets.
Year 6 made our very own curse tablets, written in the style of the Romans. We altered our names to sound authentic and researched which Roman god to call upon.
Crime Scene Investigators
WARNING! POLICE CRIME SCENE – DO NOT ENTER
On Wednesday 11th September, Year 6 became Crime Scene Investigators in order to solve the mystery of the missing dog!
We returned after lunch to find our classroom trashed and no sign of Archie (the French bulldog). However, we spotted a series of clues that we knew could lead us to the culprit.
Suspects Amy, Louise and Sarah were interviewed, had their fingerprints taken and provided handwriting samples for us to analyse.
Following this, each group presented their findings and who they believed was guilty. All evidence pointed towards… LOUISE!
Finally, Archie was reunited with the class as they successfully solved the crime.
It appears we may have some detectives in the making!
