Spring 1 Week 2 - Gunnar Personality

This week in Y5 we have been looking closely at Gunnar’s personality and appearance in detail. Gunnar is the main character from our book Viking Boy. We have used ‘role on the wall’ to help organise our thoughts and give us inspiration write our character descriptions.

Spring 1 Week 1 - Viking Boy

This week Y5 have been introuduced to their new book call the Viking Boy.  This book has cross curricular links to their history topic - The Vikings.  Using this book the children will write character descriptions  and have a go at innovating the story.  They will also explore the language used in the story and infer meaning from the story during their guided reading lessons.  Quiz your child on what they already know about the book.

Book Review of War Horse

We recommend the story War Horse because it teaches us about how horses were important during World War I.  We particularly enjoy this book as it evokes lots of emotions, especially when Joey was taken away from Albert to work in the war.  We think that this book is suitable for children over the age of 9 because it can be quite upsetting for younger readers - review by Year 5

Autumn 2 Blog Week 7

As the end of the second half term approaches, Year 5 can look back on an exciting period of learning opportunities and successes.  As well as continuing their learning about Acient Egypt, they have carried out a small research project on a key world river, presenting their findings as an informative leaflet or poster.  They have also created a simple board game to further demonstrate their understanding of rivers

Excitingly, they have been introduced to the work of the great playwriter William Shakespeare and through their reading and writing they have studied the play ‘Macbeth’. They have been immersed in the Shakespearian language and had the wonderful opportunity to appear in a dramatisation of this play after the visit of SPLAT, learning lines and creating props for the production. The children performed magnificently and there are definitely some budding actors in our midst.

Once again, it has been an enjoyable but busy half term and we look forward to the new term ahead.

Autumn 2 Week 5 - Macbeth

Y5 had a fantastic opportunity to perform Macbeth to a captivating audience. Each class had a different to act to perform. They had less than a whole day to learn their lines, the actions and perform. We are very proud of Y5, they did exceptionally well and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
