On Friday 4th October we went on our school trip to The Black Country Museum. It took just over an hour to get there and we really enjoyed the coach journey.

When we arrived we were given an introductory talk about the Museum by one of the costumed guides. Did you know that the reason why it is called the Black Country is because all the of the smoke from the coal mines made the houses black and the air thick with smog? 

During our visit we also had the chance to visit shops that were the same as they would have been in Victorian times and speak to the shopkeepers. We also took part in a Victorian School lesson. We learnt that it wouldn't have been good to be left handed in Victorian times as you were made to write with your right hand and had your hand tied behind your back to stop you from doing this! 

We had a go at writing on slates and reciting the alphabet backwards! 

During the afternoon we played with Victorian toys, visited the Sweet shop and the Bakery and had a ride on a Double Decker Bus. 

We ended our trip with a well earned visit to the gift shop before returning to school. 

Mrs Cole and Mr Palmer said that we had been the best behaved Year 6 class ever and that we were a credit to our school. 

Please see below for photos of our trip.

How you can help!

Year 6 are given weekly homework that is set on a Friday and handed back in for marking by the following Thursday. This consists of an English and Maths task based on the learning in class that week. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Friday.

Home Learning

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.  
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practiced; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
