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.
