Today the children got into the role of characters from the Romeo and Juliet play. They had to read cards about their character before introducing themselves to a group. This helped the children to write in detail through the eyes of a character and explain their part in the story.

Athens vs. Sparta... The Debate 2
This afternoon Year 5 learnt more about what it would be like to live in Ancient Greece. As a class we discussed two locations; Athens and Sparta. The children had to initially sort facts into the relevant location, then they merged into two teams. The teams had to debate on which place was the best place to live in... overall Athens was deemed to be the most sought after location!

The Image and Likeness of God

The Image and Likeness of God 1
After sharing and discussing the story of Creation, we discussed how we were one of God's most special creations. We discussed how we were like Him and also ways in which we can be more like God. We then drew half self-portraits for our Creation display.

Year 5 celebrated the birthday of Our Lady by reflecting on the important stages of Mary's Life. We discussed how she played a huge role in making Jesus the man he was and how difficult it must have been for her to say 'Yes' to God.

We created birthday cards, sang 'Happy Birthday' and ate cake to celebrate!

On rollover morning we enjoyed hearing a poem by Michael Rosen called 'Down Behind the Dustbin'. This inspired us to create our own poems about what we might find behind the dustbin. We used rhyming couplets to make our poems entertaining!
