Mr. Lauder: July 2015
This week in Base 5 we have had a very enjoyable week focusing on the history of crime and punishment as part of our topic work.
This has involved elements of drama, history research and literacy. Attached are photographs of our sliding jail cell doors and our dramatic scenes of Victorian, Roman and Medieval crime and punishment.
We have also had some welcome interruptions: a fascinating chemistry lesson on Wednesday morning with Brine Leas Science department; a creative writing workshop (on Thursday morning) led by Brine Leas English department ; and, this morning we travelled to Brine Leas to take part in their Language Day celebrations.
During this celebration we performed our own French song (and accompanying drama scene) brilliantly! All of the children should be very proud of themselves. Special thank you to Madame Sharpe for her time and efforts helping the children to rehearse and prepare. Parents will get the chance to witness this first hand on Monday 20th July during the church service and Y6 leavers show.
Finally, next week we have our residential trip to Robinwood on Wednesday and we are extremely excited. Have a nice weekend, see you all Monday!
