IPC - Building a Village

This half term the children have started their new IPC topic 'Building a Village '. This topic focuses on the key amenities that a village requires, settlement site features, origins of UK towns and the Geography of the British Isles. 

As part of our Entry Point, both 6T & 6L created their very own village. The children were then put into pairs and were given an amenity that they had to build. The children used some of the key Personal Goals when working with their partner such as: communication, cooperation and resilience. After the construction of the village, the children were then given the role as an actual villager. They were handed a villager profile card which explained what their occupation was and what family they were part of. After this, they then hand to go and find the rest of their family and create a back story explaining why they moved to the village. Below you can see the village that the children created. The name of the village is Leggupperton named after Mr Tupper and Mr Leggatt.

English - Power of Reading - There is a Boy in The Girls' Bathroom

During this half term Year 6 will be focusing on the Power of Reading text ‘There is a Boy in The Girls’ Bathroom' by the author Louis Sachar. The text is about a character called Bradley Chalkers who isn't very well bahaved at school and is always getting in trouble. However, over the course of the book Bradley starts to change and begin to make the right choices. With regards to our writing based on this book, we will be focusing on diary entries, newspaper reports and letter writing. Why not read the blurb below.  

There is a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

Give me a dollar or I'll spit on you. Meet Bradley Chalkers. He's the oldest child in the class. He tells ENORMOUS lies. He picks fights with girls. The teachers say he has 'serious behaviour problems'. And no one likes him ...Except Carla, the new school counsellor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and she even enjoys his far-fetched stories. Carla knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren't afraid to try. Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is believing in yourself. A heartwarming story of isolation, bravery and acceptance from the bestselling author of Holes, Louis Sachar
