Year 5 visit to Michelham Priory

On Thursday 14th March the Year 5’s visited Michelham Priory as part of their termly learning adventure about the Tudors.

They had a wonderful hands-on day exploring the grounds, the kitchens, grinding spices and using quills – which some of the children were excellent at!

The children also took part in a drama, dressing up and living as King Henry VIII’s court, and enjoyed a ‘Tudor Feast’ in the dining hall.

 

The staff and volunteers at the Priory were fantastic making the day a brilliant experience for everyone (adults included).

Every child was gifted a free entry ticket so they can return with their families and perhaps share a thing or two that they have learnt.

 

 

The Tudors Term 4

This term we are continuing with our learning adventure on the Tudors.

We have begun creating a dance focusing on traditional etiquette and sequences that the Tudors would have used at formal dances. You are invited to watch our dance at the end of the term!

Hopefully we will get some more ideas when we visit Michelham Priory on the 14th March.

Year 5 Christmas Enterprise 2018

Year 5 will be making stone decorations to sell at the Christmas Enterprise Fair on Monday 10th December 2018 from 3:20pm – 4:45pm.

These will be available to buy on the day for 20p/30p.

We have the opportunity to take pre-orders which can be personalised, and will come individually gift wrapped. These will be 50p each and will be created by your child (in year 5) as a beautiful gift or memory. You are welcome to pre-order or buy as many as you want, but we do ask for payment with the pre-order sheets by Wednesday 28th November. This will enable us to ensure we have plenty of time to create beautiful stones for you to enjoy year after year.

All profits raised from our sales at the Enterprise Fair will go towards future Year 5 trips and school based activities, so please dig deep and help send us on some amazing adventures for the rest of the school year.

Drama in Year Five!

In Term Five we responded to the story from the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. The children enjoyed recreating dramatic scenes from the story. They worked very well collaboratively and were able
then to go on to some good writing
