Making Gruel!

Inspired from our new novel – Oliver Twist, we had a go at making (and tasting) gruel! Gruel was fed to young children who worked in Victorian work houses for a number of reasons. We have been discussing these reasons and will now be writing up instructions on how to make gruel yourself!

You used what as battery?!

This week, we were lucky enough to have teachers from St. Gabriel’s School come and deliver a science lesson involving lemons, limes and oranges (not forgetting zinc, lead, copper and magnesium!) We worked in groups and had to find out which combination of metals and fruit provided the highest voltage when proving power to light a bulb!

As part of our topic and Literacy work, we have been examining recruitment posters from World War One. We learnt about the use of propaganda and how these posters were often referred to as ‘the weapon on the wall.’

When making our own recruitment posters, we considered our viewpoint, audience, purpose and the presentational devices we used.

National Media Museum Educational Visit

On Monday, we were lucky enough to visit The National Media Museum in Bradford. We got to experience a film in IMAX all about the world around us – including everything we don’t see! We witnessed the dissection of a real sheep eye and discovered how each part of the eye helps us see! We also took part in a ‘Lights, Camera, Action!” session in which we learnt a lot if information about light. Take a look at some of the photos from our amazing day:
