This term, Year 6 are investigating all there is to know about the Titanic and what caused it to be one of the deadliest nautical disasters of all time. We have learnt all about the great ship’s maiden (and last) voyage and now we are beginning to look at who or what might be to blame for the sinking and resulting deaths. There are a lot of people who we think might be culprits, including Captain Smith, White Star Line manager Bruce Ismay and even Frederick Fleet, the lookout boy, who is apparently a relative of our very own Sev! We’ve done lots of debating and persuading and soon we’ll be writing our own police reports to sum up what we’ve found. After that, we’ll pose as our main culprit and write letters trying to persuade people that it’s not our fault. We have also put our drawing skills to the test with some cutaway art in the style of Ken Marschall, which is very detailed and complicated but looking brilliant!
Along with all the hard work above, Year 6 have also been working their socks off in the run up to the SATs. We know that they will be brilliant next week, but no matter how it goes, the whole Year 6 teaching team are incredibly proud of the children: how hard they have worked and how they have risen to the challenge. We can’t wait for the double celebration next week of the royal wedding AND the end of SATs week. As always, thanks for all the support you have provided.
