Year 5 - Fox
TERM 1 - Who Dunnit?
Wow, what a term!
Fox class have dived into the past of Crime and Punishment and discovered many gruesome ways in which people were punished for committing crimes. We have looked at hanging, beheading, branding into criminals skin and at how women were made to wear a Brank for gossiping. Although, some children think we should bring back some of the punishments from the past!
The children have thoroughly enjoyed the Science that they had to under take in order to solve the crime that was committed in our class; I am sure you heard that our book corner was destroyed at the beginning of the term. The children worked hard learning about different types of forensics such as finger printing, chromotography and looking at fibre samples, in order to find the culprit. They were very successful and, through the process of elimination, worked out who it was and decided on the consequences they should have to face! Well done guys!
We have also been working hard looking at the work of Ruth Singer and her amazing criminal quilts. The children have amazed me with their sewing skills and I look forward to seeing their finished piece. We are also looking forward to our visit from the Magistrates at the end of the term!
