Star Wars Day 2018

Just another day at Farfield…

Star Wars Day is becoming a bit of a tradition in Year 6. Thank you for such fantastic support with costumes so early in the school year!

We started the day altogether in the hall. We did some Jedi training and then received an important message about our mission for the day. In full Star Wars opening crawl, we were told the following:


EPISODE VIII: Attack of the Voices
There is unrest in the upper echelons of the educating systems. Dozens of law abiding pupils have declared their intentions to leave the Republic. They are kept fearfully imprisoned, however,  by the voices of Gramma who has become the feared Lord of Farfield.
There are a group of elders within the realm who must tackle the voices head on. Will they be active in their quest or passive and allow Gramma’s tyrannical rule to continue?
The children worked through a collection of fun activities to help them understand the difference between active and passive voice – an essential Year 6 Grammar objective. They are now able to change from one type of sentence to the other and use them in their independent writing.
