6B’s BLACK DEATH DAY!

To celebrate the end of our Topic unit for this term, Year 6 dressed up as a representation from The Plague during the Medieval Times. The children have been learning about the effects of the plague, how it impacted society on a global scale and have even made links to the COVID-19 pandemic. Have a look at some of their awesome, yet gruesome costumes below! Can you identify some of the different characters, from that era?

Our last Topic lesson was looking at the Peasants Revolt. We studied and created posters about what life was like for Peasants during this time and the working conditions they had to live in. We then re-enacted the Peasant Revolt, which was a wonderful drama experience for all!

To really ensure the children will have something to remember today by, they finished the day creating their very own Plague Doctor masks, as part of their Design and Technology unit. Many children were introduced to sewing and how to use needle work to connect two materials!
