Today, Year 5 have been looking at the Anglo-Saxon Sutton Hoo burial. They thoroughly enjoyed determining which Anglo-Saxon king may have been buried there and examining evidence to support their opinions.
Here's the link to all of the artefacts found in the burial for all our budding historians!
In Year 5 today, we have been doing an 'RE Day' about Belonging. We explored what it feels like to belong, and different groups we belong to. We applied this to the Muslim prayer ritual which helps people in this faith family feel like they belong.
The most fun part of the day was creating our very own 'Belonging Rap'! The children came up with the lyrics themselves and they all made fantastic contributions. Here's the final product!
Lyrics: We are the children of Anstey School We are cool cause we all rule
We like to help We like to care We’re together, friends forever Never give up, you’re nearly there
We are the children of Year group 5 We work hard and strive so that we can thrive
We’re all a team to chase our dream Belonging always fills you with glee If we all make friends, we’ll get through anything You’ll belong to something eventually
We are the children of Class 5B We guarantee to belong in harmony
Yesterday, we celebrated National Poetry Day in 5B by looking at examples of poems and discussing the features. We have since had lots of children working on some lovely poems at home and even one written by a team of poets :)
Here are a few examples! Well done to all of the children that have given it a go.
