Lady Of Shalott
As a class we read and shared the poem by Tennyson, The Lady of Shalott. We used the poem to inspire our weaving. In the poem, the Lady is unable to look out of the window, for fear of a curse. We used lines of the poem and turned them into colours to represent the key characters.
Welcome to Class 8
We have all been working incredibly hard this year and you can see some of our work on this webpage, the Darton blog and Twitter.
This term has seen Class 8 investigating 'Mining for Minors'. We had a fabulous visit to the Coal Mining Museum where we found out what life was like for young children working in the mines in Victorian England. The work was hard and we were all glad to get back to school, safe in the knowledge that thanks to Queen Victoria, we don't have to work in the mines anymore! Travelling underground was great fun, but we were all pleased that we didn't have to spend all our time down there because it was dark and dusty.
We invited parents into school for our curriculum afternoon- see the photos on our Twitter feed! Our adults had to help us write letters and remember all the text features! "It was really good to show my dad my work!" (EB)
Right Reverend Bishop of Wakefield, Tony Robinson came to school this term. We learned about his role in the church and one of us even dressed in his robes! Read our reports...coming soon!
Watch this space for more action packed learning from Class 8!
On Monday 27 April 2015, The Right Reverend The Bishop of Wakefield, Tony Robinson, came to our school to talk to us about the role of a bishop.
First, we came into assembly and sat down. Then he started to talk about what was different between the clothes that Reverend Jean wore to what the bishop did. I spotted that the bishop was wearing a gold chain, purple clothes and carried a shepherd’s stick. Reverend Jean wore ordinary clothes with a dog collar.
A boy in year six was invited by the bishop to be dressed up as a bishop. He started with an alb, then a stole, then a chain with a cross on it. (WM)
