Throughout the year the children are guided through a series of Learning Adventures. Below is a review of the last Learning Adventure with some associated photos, ENJOY!
Spring Learning Adventure - Please Sir…I want some more.
A brilliant start to our year 6’s final year at Pilgrims’ Cross!
Our big adventure- ‘Please sir, I want some more…Learning!’ has been an incredible exploration of life in the Victorian era.
We started the half term with Neilcott (the amazing company building the school extension) helping us to understanding the technology behind Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Bridges- and we create our own impressive prototypes and designs/.
In science we learned what the Victorian era really did to light up our worlds- exploring electricity and light through investigations. During this time we also created and analyse our own line graphs to analyse our results in detail.
This then went on to us exploring narratives from three sensational Victorian writers, Hardy, Conan-Doyle and Bronte- to create spoooooky inspired narratives ourselves! Our English also lead us to arguing whether education has really changed for the better in the last 100 years- and I think the children will agree from our Victorian school morning that it truly has!
Our trip to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard was a fantastic day out for pupils to explore the times of war and medicines of the Victorian era as well as climb aboard the HMS Warrior!
In maths, pupils have been designing their own workhouses using translation and refection, creating mosaic Victorian title designs and solving their own complex two step problems- that even had Mr Osmond challenged!
In RE we have been exploring our understanding of Christianity and other faiths, focusing in on the themes of God through forgiveness. The pupils reflected brilliantly on their understanding of the processes of forgiveness and learned the Christian and Jewish perspectives on how to forgive others
