Ruby (Year 5)

Class Assembly

 

Ruby Class performed a short play about the Vikings in assembly this morning.

 

They learnt a song to the tune of 'Do you hear the people sing?' which they sang brilliantly even though the music was very quiet!

 

Here is the last verse of their performance.

Year 5 Christmas Homework Tasks 

 

As Christmas fast approaches, we have decided to include a range of Christmas homework tasks the children can choose to complete rather than the ones on the grid in their homework books. These include:

  1. Writing a Christmas themed poem. 
  2. Designing and making a 3D Christmas card. There are plenty of interesting designs to be found online.
  3. Writing a diary recount either for an Elf rushing to prepare all the presents on Christmas Eve or as one of Santa's reindeers helping to deliver the presents on the big day itself.
  4. Completing their very own Christmas list along with prices. They must then add these mentally, using the methods we have learnt in class, to find a grand total. (Place Value, Regrouping, Estimating and Equal Sum however the children are not allowed to use a calculator or column method).

Alternatively, your child can choose to complete one of the tasks remaining on their homework task grid.

Chiltern Open Air Museum

 

When year 5 visited Chiltern Open Air Museum we spent the morning preparing a Viking hut for a visit from the Bishop. We decorated a rune stone, wrote messages in Latin, tried on Roman armour, made Viking broaches and played Viking games.

 

When the Bishop arrived he tried to convince us to convert to Christianity but we decided that we wanted to be Pagans.

 

After lunch we had a go at being archaeologists. We dug up different artefacts and sorted through rubbish to find clues.
