On Thursday 5th October, Year 6 went on a fantastic trip to Oxford Castle. We had so much fun; we had a workshop and went on a really interesting tour. In the workshop there were lots of fun and fascinating activities. The lady gave interesting talks about the different crimes and punishments through all the ages. After that, we had our lunch on the big steps; it was a bit chilly! Before we knew it we were out on our tour. We climbed Saint George’s Tower, it had 101 steps! At the top of the tower, you could see everything. It was amazing. Straight after that we went up ‘The Mound’. (It was a big hill where families and friends would go on a family day out to seeing people get hanged!). We enjoyed the day and learnt lots to do with crime and punishment.

Year Six Wanted Posters by Archie & Joshua
In year 6 we have been experimenting with charcoal and making wanted posters! To start off with we needed to find a character as our criminal. This was a lot of fun because we got to choose any character we wanted. Even good guys! Archie did General Grievous from star wars. Joshua did Guzma from Pokémon sun and moon. Next we had to draw our characters out in pencil first. Then we had to give our characters a crime and reward for catching them. Once that was complete we had to add details and outlines with charcoal sticks, our hands got very messy! We had lots of help from Mr. Sullivan and Mrs. Parry and they helped us with our techniques on how to sketch and use charcoal (how not to snap it!!). We had lots of fun and we would all love to do it again.
