Sparks Might Fly

Our Legend: Guy Fawkes

We have learnt all about Robert Catesby's Gunpowder Plot and Guy 'Guido' Fawkes' role in this treasonous event to overthrow a Protestant king and return a Catholic to the throne.  We learnt of a mysterious letter sent to Lord Monteagle which warned the King of their plan.

In role as Guy, we have written diary entries and we have even created our own TV news report telling the public of the terrible plot.  Take a look:

English - Read, Write, Perform

In English, we have been studying to be a 'wizard's apprentice'.  We have studied the art of writing spells and reached a mastery level when we investigated Shakespeare's three witches from Macbeth. By magpieing ideas from the spells we have studied, plus our own ghoulish imaginations, we have created our very own sorcery spells.  Take a look but be careful that we don't turn you into stone!

Science - Electricity

In science, we have been learning all about electricity including: where it comes from, how to stay safe and how to create circuits.

We have had a lot of fun making our own series circuits and testing whether a circuit is complete. We have also learnt how switches work and made our own, and investigated electrical conductors and insulators.

Design Technology - Electrical Product

We studied a range of electrical games before designing our own electrical quiz boards based on Guy Fawkes and our science unit. 

Harvest

Thank you to all those people who donated food to this year's harvest festival.  You donated a whooping 199kg of food to the Southport Food Bank!
