Macbeth Production

 

Dear Parent/Carer

We are delighted to inform you that as part of our next writing unit in Year Five, we have the opportunity for the children to take part in a Shakespeare workshop. The theatre company SPLAT will be visiting our school and working with the children to teach them about the play ‘Macbeth’ and put together a performance as a whole year group.

The workshop will take place during school hours on Thursday 5th December and the cost will be £3.50 which will include a full day of activities. We would also like to invite parents to watch the final production on this day at 2:15pm in our Junior hall.

I’m sure you will agree this is a fantastic opportunity for your child to engage in their writing and to take part in drama activities.

If you have any further questions please contact your class teacher.

Many thanks

Y5 team.

Autumn 2 Week 1 - Beauty & The Beast

Y5 had the opportunity to watch a fantastic play produced by M and M theatre productions. The play was an innovated version of the classic Beauty and the Beast.  It was immensely enjoyed by all the pupils and teachers, they even managed to get the teachers to dance on stage. A fun morning enjoyed by all of Y5.

Autumn 1 Blog - Week 8

In Y5 this half term we have been learning about Ancient Egypt.  We began the topic with a mini archaeological dig where er unearthed exciting Egyptian artefacts to investigate further

The childre have been fully immersed in the topic through their reading and writing and have learned about the many Egyptian Gods as well as writing their own Egyptian myths.  In their topic learning they have written letters to the pharohs to explain the importance of the river Nile and to persuade them to do something about the droughts

To finish the half term we have worked together to create willow lanterns for our annual Lantern Parade around the local area.

It has been a very busy but enjoyable half term and the children have all settled into Y5 really well.  We are looking forward to the new half term ahead

Autumn 1 Week 5 - Investigating reversible and irreversible changes

This week during science Y5 have been learning all about reversible and irreversible changes. We learnt that if you heat, cool, or mix things their state can change. Sometimes these changes are permanent- such as heating bread when making toast- these changes are irreversible. Sometimes these changes are reversible- such as freezing water – the ice at room temperature will melt back to water. We then completed an experiment to see if mentos and coke will result in a reversible or irreversible change and why. Here are some pictures of the chemical reaction during the experiment.

Autumn 1 Week 2 - Archaeological Dig

Y5 Archaeological dig

An archaeologist is a person who studies in History, to discover how people lived in the past. They look for artefacts that belong to the past. With these artefacts we get to learn about life in detail. Artefacts can be anything from jewellery, building, pots, objects, clothing etc.  In Y5 we became archaeologists.

We completed our dig on our excavation site. We worked slowly and carefully using special brushes. Some of the things we discovered were a Victorian iron, an old portable radio, an amulet.

 As we were discovering the new artefacts we kept thinking about these key questions: What is the artefact? What is the purpose of the artefacts? How old are they? What materials are they made of? Where did they come from?

 We have learnt that a historian using artefacts as a source of information. As we learn about Ancient Egyptians we will continue to use artefacts to help us gain knowledge about Life in Egypt.
