Year 5 would like to share with you their fantastic pictures to commemorate Remembrance Day.
Over the last few weeks, the children in Year 5 have shown great skill by making their own Anglo-Saxon helmets. They really enjoyed exploring the use of paper mache to make these and they had fun trying out their helmets yesterday.
I think they look really scary!
The scaring and the fun continued today too with our spooky Halloween activity day. It was a great end to our first half term.
Year 5 are reading Beowulf in class. We know Hrothgar needs help to stop Grendel’s evil attacks so we have created wanted posters to advertise for a hero to save the kingdom. We decided to write them using the Runic alphabet To make them more authentic and fit in with the story setting.
We think they look brilliant!
To welcome the children back to school in September, each class bubble shared the story ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers.
We had great fun learning about our wonderful world and thinking about the special places, people and animals in it. It made us all think about how lucky we are to have such an amazing world.
We created some beautiful work to share our thoughts with everyone in school.
What brilliant work it is!

Today, Jack and Ethan created a fabulous PowerPoint of the top 10 capital cities you can’t get enough of. They researched the cities and added the information and pictures in.
Didn’t they do a great job?!
Today we enjoyed the last day with all of our friends. We had a brilliant time playing party games and espcially loved musical statues!
After that we joined up with Year 5 for some sporting fun. We completed lots of different races and had a lots of fun.
This afternoon we watched Happy Feet and played with our friends.
Year 5 had four special visitors from Year 2 today. They came to tell us all about their research about famous London landmarks as they knew we are visiting this city very soon. We were very impressed with the facts they told us about London Bridge, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. It’s made us even more excited about our trip to London!
Natasha from Seven Stories came to Year 5 to inspire and support our creative writing skills. We played word games, explored Michael Morporgo archive material, found out about Joey the horse from reading some of War Horse, and explored some interesting objects to write about.
The children loved the experience and became truly immersed in their writing.
