Tudor houses

  

Tudor baking

Home learning - Week 1

Here are a few pictures of what our class have been up to this week:

Very neat Maths work 

  

Learning to sew  

King Henry VIII 

Tudor baking 

  

Treason!

We have started to read the book 'Treason' as part of our whole class reading. It was gripping from the beginning as something awful happened to one of the characters within the first chapter! Jack enjoyed acting in the role of King Henry VIII as part of our hot seating activity - he was aksed some very interesting questions by the rest of the class.

Battle of Bosworth

This half term we are learning about the reign of Monarchs from our British History. We enjoyed acting out the Battle of Bosworth, playing the parts of the different armies.

  

  

Young Voices

We had a fantastic time at the Young Voices concert! It was a brilliant night of singing and dancing.

  

  

  

 

The Journey

This half term we are reading a book called 'The Journey'. We have enjoyed looking at the lovely illustrations, one of which inspired us to think about memories and the children created these freeze frames:

New Topic

A new year can only mean one thing ... a new topic! We found out that we will be learning about the Shang Dynasty this half term. The children took part in different activities: translating and writing their names using ink, making spring rolls and ordering a timeline of events. We had a great day!

  

  

 

Cooking

Year 5 really enjoyed designing, making and eating their vegetable curries.

Forests Schools

Despite the cold weather, we had a lovely time outside. 

   

Christmas Play

On Wednesday 11th December, Year 4 and 5 performed their Christmas play: 'When Sasha got swept up the chimney'. The children worked so hard rehearsing the songs and learning their lines in a short space of time. The staff were very proud of two great performances.

    

    

Exploring numbers

We used counters to help us create and picture what square numbers look like. We then used cubes to help us create and picture cube numbers.

Space Centre Trip

We enjoyed our recent visit to the Space Centre. The children enjoyed exploring all of the different acitivities as you can see below:

'"This is a good school." "All pupils...are well supported and make good progress from their starting points." ’Ofsted 2017
'"There is a pleasant and calm atmosphere in the school." "Pupils feel safe at school, they trust adults and know there is always someone to turn to if they need help." ’Ofsted 2017
'"Pupils enjoy their school life, especially the opportunities they have to learn through a variety of activities." "Pupils readily engage in activities and develop their curiosity and an appetite for learning ’Ofsted 2017
