    History - Benin

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Year 5 started history today by looking at how Benin fitted in with other important times in history that they have already found out about. They discovered that Benin was at the same time as a lot of our own British history and at the same time as The Maya that we looked into earlier in the year. The children then investigated the question - Why did workers have to join a gang. The children found out that all crafts people during Benin times formed a guild where all the people who did a certain skill stayed together.

    The Queen's Jubilee

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Year 5 have been doing various activities to celebrate the Queen's jubilee this week. The children have learnt a lot about The Queen through our biographical guided reading text and we have done some art work of the Queen in the Pop Art style of Roy Lichenstein. The children also had a great time at our Jubilee celebrations today. They all entered into the spirit of red, white and blue and the hall looked very colourful while they were all eating their lunch!

    New Class Book

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    We have started our new class book today. The children chose 'A long walk to water' It is a book which is based on true events and follows the lives of two characters from Sudan but from different time periods. I will be interested to see if the children are able to predict how the lives of these two characters are linked in some way.

    PSHE - Relationships

    Posted by Mrs N Lawday
    Year 5 continued looking at different relationships today. As it was a lovely day we did this on the field after our PE lesson. We looked at various statements about relationships and the children decided how much they agreed or disagreed with these statements using a line of continuum.
