Last half term, Year 5 enjoyed reading and studying The Highwayman. This poem inspired us to write our own stories. Some of the stories have been written from Tim’s point of view, some of the stories highlight the flaws in the Highwayman’s behaviour, and some of the stories have a surprising twist! We hope you enjoy reading them!
Last Friday, we celebrated Book Week at Cathedral School by dressing up as some of our favourite characters. It was a lot of fun, and during our literacy lesson, we acted in-role as these characters whilst our friends tried to guess who we were.
See how many characters you recognise from our pictures below!
This week was Year 5’s collective worship. Last half term we had been learning about Sikhism and so we reflected on what this religion has taught us. Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism, and was a very inspirational leader. We discussed figures in the world who inspire us today such as: Police Officers, The Queen, Malala, our parents, Sports coaches, Mohammed, Jesus and many more.
Well done Class 5 – you did an excellent job and I couldn’t be more proud of you.
Dr Me is a project which is aimed at empowering children through promoting self-care and management for common childhood illnesses such as sore throats, vomiting and minor injuries.
It was extremely fun and we learnt a lot. Thank you to the knowledgeable Doctors who took their time to come in and talk to us.
On Thursday we visited Wagamamas where we made and ate our own noodle dishes and smoothies. We also tried a range of different noodles, and some spicy foods! What a fun morning we had! Thank you to all of the staff at Clink Street Wagamamas for giving us such a brilliant experience.
Have a safe and enjoyable half term Year 5 – you deserve it!
