We took immersive reading to the next level! While we were in Eyam, we read another chapter of the ‘Children of Winter’ – a story set in Eyam about The Great Plague. It felt really special and we all connected with the story and it’s characters even more.
On Tuesday the Year 3/4 children visited Eyam for the day. We had an amazing time and loved learning all about the history of Eyam and it’s people. We were amazed at how small the village was and were shocked to learn that over 200 people died from the Plague in 1665/6.
As part of literacy, the children are writing instructions. The children had to work together to write a set of instructions for a sandwich they had never made before. One of their team then had to make the sandwich following their teams instructions. We then tried the sandwich for an extra evaluation.
The children had a fantastic time in Eyam learning all about the plague. Here a a poem we performed while carrying out our activities in Eyam.
