To finish off our learning this week, 4 Blue took part in a range of activities, consolidating their learning and working as a team together.
To start the day, we used our Maths skills to count money and calculate taxes. This demonstartion helped the children to understand how the taxes in Coventry were unjust.
We understood the reasons behind Lady Godiva’s protest. We used our values knowledge and used our money skills, paying taxes for their cities.
We discussed the taxes of the cities and why they are important, as we compared the different prices. We used empathy to think about how the people of Coventry would feel for not being able to pay their taxes.
We spent time reading a story all about Lady Godiva, learning about the story behind the Coventry legend.
Children made sculptures representing the BH values, teamwork, kindness, knowledge and respect.
We used wire and modroc to create our sculptures. We used teamwork, tenacity, respect and resilience.
Children created a roll on the wall, writing how they thought people felt at the time of the protest. Around the outside of their roll on the wall, they described the character’s appearance.
We created TV news reports to explain what had happened and to interview Lady Godiva. Children had to empathise with Lady Godiva and understand her motives.
