Together, we can do it!

No Pens Wednesday


Today we went a whole day without using our pens (or pencils)! In English we debated whether Jim Jarvis in our novel, Street Child, would be better off living on the streets or in the workhouse. We had group debates and came to a shared agreement.

In Maths we used a debate technique called PEEL (Point Explanation Example Link) to explain our ideas. We then used equipment to show examples of our explanations.

In PBL we acted out Tudor crime and punishments! Some of them were very cruel. Did you know if someone was caught gossiping, they would have to wear a metal cage on their head to stop them from talking!
