During WW2 day we were evacuated and split into family groups much as children were during the war. We experienced an air raid and heard accounts of people who had lived during the time. We finished the day, and the war, with a spectacular VE Day party where we got to show off our Lindy Hop skills!
Today we spent time in the school garden planting vegetables! We will leave them to grow underground during the cold winter months and hopefully when the warmer weather comes we will have a crop to harvest!
For RE Day in Spring Term we learned about Christianity. Our focus was on the story of the Good Samaritan and how it impacts on the lives of people today.
During Diversity Week we were very lucky as adults from many different cultures came into school to read us stories from their own culture and often in their own language!
During Anti-Bullying week, Stefan from Bigfoot Arts came into school to run a RESPECT workshop with Years 5 & 6. During this session we worked on a performace showing how we should all behave towards one another. The activity was great and we learned an important word - EMPATHY.
As part of Anti-Bullying week we took part in a Mes Amis activity with our friends in Year 1. In the morning we learned a collection of new games and then in the afternoon we had to take on the role of teachers and show the younger children how to play them. This was not as easy as we expected! We definitely learned a lot about what it must be like for our teachers!
Sam from OXFAM came to visit the whole of Year Five on Monday 13th November. She talked to us all about the work OXFAM does around the world to help children receive the levels of care and education that they are entitled to. This fits in with our topic of Childrens Rights where we are learning about the Rights and Responsibilities every child has.
At the start of the term we produced and performed our first Family Assembly of Year Five! To begin with we were very nervous; after all, it was so close to the start of the year, what could we possibly have to talk about? But then we rememberd all the things we'd done already this year and suddenly it was easy! In fact, it was harder to decide what to leave out than did we have enough to talk about!
