Autumn 1 - A Child's War
For the launch of the theme, 'A Child's War', Year 5 visited Eden Camp. This trip enabled pupils to experiences the sights, sounds and smells of life on the Home Front and the Front Line, bringing history to life.
On Tuesday 8th October, Year 5 led school's Harvest Festival Worship. They explained the meaning of HARVEST and each class shared the contributions they had received, which have been passed on to our local food banks.
This half term, children have enjoyed taking part in Wilderness School. They have developed their shape, space and measure skills and enjoyed sharing stories around a fire, with hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows.
We have completed one of our PROMISES, by making and flying paper aeroplanes. We tried a number of different variations.
This half term, Year 5 have had taken part in lots of exciting activities. During Community Week, we looked at our local area and held a cake sale to raise funds for The Shack. We launched our topic, 'A Child's War' with a trip to Eden Camp and returned excited and eager to learn more. We have learned about the Blitz, Evacuation, Rationing and the Holocaust. We were also lucky enough to take part in Wilderness School which primarily focused on Team Building. We also learned how to make a fire, safely.
