New Year – New Decade!
Year 5 have kick-started the new decade with our time-travelling, space-themed topic titled ‘Back to the Future!’

We enjoyed looking at some time-travel related artwork and then experimenting with different techniques in our sketchbooks. We used oil pastels, soft pastels, chalk, watercolours and crayons.

 

 

 

 

We have also created a brand-new reading area that looks like a Tardis. The children are enjoying using it and we have started to do something called ‘Drop Everything And Read’. Watch this space for more on our space topic!

Visit to Hampton Court
On Monday 18th November, Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a fantastic, long day out to Hampton Court Palace in London. We all managed to get to school by 8am and survived the 2 hour journey. On arrival, we were whisked off to a workshop all about King Henry VIII in his youth. Everyone loved playing their parts in the drama. Then, we were given plenty of time to explore the magnificent buildings and grounds. Year 5 loved finding a game of Nine Men’s Morris to play, along with exploring the wonderful Tudor gardens. It was a superb day out.
Thank you to all the Y5 helpers that joined us, particularly Mrs Jones and Mireille.

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.
