Christopher Columbus Role Plays

As part of our ‘Discovery topic’, children have been researching Christopher Columbus and his Voyage of Discovery.  They then used their research, to present a game show in pairs where they acted as the interviewer and Christopher Columbus and presented the information that they have discovered in a question / answer session.  You can see the pictures below:

Harry Potter Potions!

This week Year 6 are writing instructions and as a hook into our writing lesson, we made our own Harry Potter potions.  We watched a short clip of the film and then designed our own recipe and created it from a selection of gruesome ingredients.  This enabled the children to plan their instructions ready to write tomorrow.  You can see the video below.

Year 6 film at Smithills Hall

As part of our literacy writing work, the children have been writing their own version of the TV show ‘Most Haunted’.

A few weeks ago researched the alleged ‘ghostly encounters’ at Smithills Hall and then wrote reports about what we had discovered.  Today we visited Smithills Hall to film our reports so that we can produce our videos during our ICT lessons.

The videos will be appearing on this blog over the coming weeks but you can see some of the pictures below:
