Year 5

Anglo-Saxon Assembly

We have been practising our Anglo- Saxon assembly this week and are very impressed by the speed in which children have learnt their parts. The performance is on Tuesday 18th December at 9:15am, everyone is welcome to attend. Please can any costumes be in school by Thursday 13th; children requiring costumes received a letter on Monday 3rd December explaining what they need to bring in.

Children need to keep practising the ‘Viking Rock’ song.

Many thanks for your support.

Anglo—Saxon Houses

What a fantastic 2 days we have had working on our engineering and teamwork skills. We worked in groups of 3 to design and build Anglo-Saxon style houses. First, we drew a plan to scale and then carefully measured and sawed the wood for the frame. We had to be very precise when gluing our frame together to create strong and accurate joins. Team work was essential as we fixed the base and top in place. We persevered even when we found parts of the construction tricky; this was especially the case with the roof! Our final frames were very strong and sturdy. Even though our frames were constructed in exactly the same way, all of our houses look different thanks to their creative and imaginative exteriors.
