Crime And Consequences, by Miss Young

Date: 8th Oct 2018 @ 8:59pm


The children had a brilliant time during their ‘Crime and Consequences’ workshop. They started the day by playing a game of Stop Thief! They had to pick another child to follow and do so without being spotted. They had lots of fun and some children were extremely good at keeping a poker face!

The children then learnt all about crimes and the punishments given during the Roman times. They learnt how a verdict was reached and discussed how biased this was. The children then looked at crimes and consequences from the Anglo-Saxons. This linked with lots of the topic work we have done in school and the children enjoyed playing the jury in court!

Next, they moved on to learning about the Tudor times. They learnt all about tithings and wergilds and acted out a scene in a Tudor court. When they reached the Victorian times, the children learnt about the different crimes committed and created freeze frames to portray these for their peers. They had lots of fun trying to spot the different crimes in the street scene freeze frames.

The children finished the day with an interactive game of hangman. They revisited words that they had learnt throughout the workshop such as magistrate, justice and torture. Lots of fun was had by all!


During the session, the children were given the given the following scenario…

Your teachers do not turn up for school…what do you think should happen?

The children created their own set of rules including things such as; All teachers should incur a £50 fine, The eldest boy and girl in the school should be in charge and everyone should leave and enter assembly in an orderly fashion.

We talked about how this is following the Rule of Law and we also discussed the importance of democracy and having the right to make that vote of law.

Tudor Music

The children have had lots of fun learning about music in the Tudor times in our music lessons. They have matched pictures to the names of their instruments and have compared the pictures to instruments that we use today. The children have also learnt about the piece of music, Greensleeves. Can your child tell you who legend says wrote Greensleeves?

They had lots of fun listening to the song and writing about how it made them feel and the importance of music in Tudor times. We finished off the day with some fantastic dancing! The children learnt about when Greensleeves would have typically been played and they learnt a little bit of Tudor style dancing with a partner! They had lots and lots of fun!

Meet Jack (Beware graphic pictures) Bike safety lesson, by Mrs Knibbs

Date: 6th Jul 2018 @ 10:00am

This is Jack. He is a year 7 student who attended Mossley school and was popular amongst the children who knew him within the lower years and therefore we believe this is a lesson that the children will really understand.

Jack was out playing in Congleton park with a friend who had a new bike. Jack borrowed his friends bike to try it out without borrowing his friend's helmet.

Having rode the bike for a couple of minutes Jack hit a bump in the path which meant that he lost control and fell hitting his head on the railings.

The attached photos show the result of falling from a bike with no helmet. Jack is very lucky and would like everyone to see what could happen if you ride a bike without a helmet.
