In order to contextualise our learning, we took a trip to The Bridge Theatre at Tower Hill in Central London. We were really excited as we hadn’t yet read the ending, so the second half of the performance was a huge surprise to us. And what a surprise it was! There were huge battle scenes, not to mention deaths and rebirths of characters and all punctuated by Ms. Pope’s tears (it is her favourite book after all!). All in all, we had an amazing afternoon. It was great to see the characters for ourselves and gain a better insight into their personalities. We can’t wait to get back and get writing!
In November we went to the Museum of London to learn more about the Romans. First, we met an archaeologist in the remains of London's amphitheatre, buried deep beneath the Guildhall Art Gallery, and participated in a workshop investigating artefacts. We then developed our enquiry skills as we explored the wreath of artefacts on display at the Museum.
