Maths Board Games

Date: 19th May 2017 @ 2:24pm

As a treat at the end of assessment week, the children played maths board games. These board games challenge the childrens' timestable knowledge. The majority are strategy games which makes the children think about other players answers and not only their own. They involve working out multiple sums at once and making connections using the inverse operation.

We has an Anglo-Saxon expert came to our class and taught us how to make Anglo-Saxon shields and brooches.The children had a great day and all learnt a lot about the Anglo-Saxons.

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:00am

As a whole school project, each class read the Elves and the Shoemaker and used this as a focus for their writing. In Y5, we decided to have a look at whether it was unfair or not that the Elves were working for the shoemaker. We had a discussion using P4C (Philosophy for Children) and came to the conclusion that the elves had poor working conditions, no pay, unsocialble hours and many more. A lot of the children noticed that this related to some of the articles that we have been looking at in our Values lessons. We produced news reports, newspaper articles and diary entries from the elves. 

Beowulf (Talk for Writing)

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 9:09am

We read the story of Beowulf as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic. We retold the story using actions and story maps which helped us to remember it. This meant we could concentrate on the quality of our writing rather than trying to remember the story.
