Autumn 1 – Week 2

Year 5 stars of the week: Justice and Cheri’ane

Last week was World Faiths’ Week and Year 5 was studying the religion Islam. We began by looking at the Fruits of Friendship, and in particular how Muslims demonstrate Self-Control, Gentleness and Faithfulness in their everyday lives by following the five pillars of Islam.

Below is a picture of our display board in our class. What wonderful artists we have in Year 5!

Summer Week 5 – Performing our Play Scripts

This half term in Year 5, we have written our own play scripts based on Greek myths and legends. After perfecting our dialogue and stage directions, we then brought our plays to life and performed them.

We hope you enjoy watching them as much as enjoyed making them!

The Sun and Moon Catastrophe

The Great Weaving Contest

King Midas and the Golden Touch

The Terrible Feast

Odysseus and the Cyclops


Summer Week 4 – Designing buildings

Year 5 stars of the week: Zakaria and Edward

Yesterday, Year 5 went to Tower Bridge on a school trip.

We began by looking at the East and West side of London, and identified some of the features of the buildings that were there. We found lots of interesting shapes which gave us inspiration when designing our own building.

Tip: if you ever go to Tower Bridge (and we would really recommend that you do) remember to look up and down…

We used SketchUp to design our own buildings. They are being printed on a 3D printer – we cannot wait to see our creations!

Book Bingo fun

This morning we had a fantastic time with Year 4 talking Books, Books, Books.  We thought about what was have already read and made recommendations to each other before choosing 6 new books for our Book Bingo cards to read over the summer.

What books would you recommend and why?

What are you looking forward to reading next?

Summer Week 3 – Tales of the Trojan War

Year 5 stars of the week: Heidi and Daniel

This week, we have begun reading our class text for this half term – ‘Tales of the Trojan War.’

Learning about many Greek myths and legends has inspired us to write our own play scripts of these wondrous tales.

Keep your eyes peeled on our class blog for our finished productions!
