WOW Day!
Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a Tudor WOW day today, involving research in the new computer room in the morning, along with banquet preparation. They cooked pottage, Tudor-knot biscuits and bread. The afternoon was spent enjoying some Tudor entertainment such as jousting and tennis, along with consuming the Tudor banquet! What a way to truly kick off our Terrible Tudors topic!

Tudor Topic
As part of our Tudor topic, we are very much enjoying reading Road to London by Barbara Mitchelhill. Last week, we incorporated some drama techniques. We made a conscience alley to help Thomas, the main character, with some decision-making.

Bushcraft Day
To celebrate the end of year 5 we spent the whole day on the playing field and built a camp. We worked in tribes for the day solving problems, building a shelter and showing our creative talents making fish from buff willow. One of the highlights was our campfire at the end, where we toasted marshmallows and made smores.

Inside Out- topic
We have been analysing the function of the circulatory system in science, linked to our text Pig Heart Boy. Once we had studied the flow diagram, we acted out the process using blue and red cards to signify oxygentated and deoxygenated blood.

Applying our skills in pencil shading, we recreated a Victorian feel to draw a human heart or brain and mounted them onto vintage paper.

As the academic year is slowly coming to an end, we have been reflecting on our “I can ” statements as part of our growth mindset work in PSHE and have made spiral decorations for display in our classroom.

As part of International Pi Day, we investigated the circumference and area of shapes in school. We colour coded the first 50 numbers of pi and plotted a lined map to create a piece of art.







An Explorer came to visit us
Mr Murphy came to speak to us about his exciting trip to the Himalayas in 2017. The pictures were phenomenal and it gave us all perspective on Everest and the surrounding peaks.








Steel Pans
Year 5 were well represented as part of the school’s Steel Pan Concert. We were treated to an assembly the next day with a wide variety of music.

Y5 Autumn T1&2 (A) Topic Web – Chocolate

Our trip to Cadbury World before half term was filled with chocolate tasting, making and learning about the history of chocolate.

Odd Socks!
Year 5 children very much enjoyed working with Reception children last week as part of Anti –Bullying week. Our task was to create a dot design and year 5 very much enjoyed encouraging and supporting their Reception friends.





We have been very excited about the lead up to the live transmission from the RSC this week of Romeo and Juliet. In order to prepare we acted out various scenes and created freeze frames in the playground. This really helped with our understanding.
