Niño anglosajón, de Tony Bradman

La historia del viaje de un niño anglosajón a la Batalla de Hastings en 1066: Key Stage 2 La historia cobra vida como una aventura llena de batallas.
1065: Magnus es el hijo de Harold Godwinson, señor de los sajones del sur y despiadadamente ambicioso aspirante al trono de Inglaterra. De la noche a la mañana, Magnus se encuentra en el centro del escenario en la disputa familiar empapada de sangre que condujo a una de las batallas más famosas de la historia.
Esta es la tragedia familiar detrás de 1066: vívala con Magnus, mientras los lobos de la historia se acercan a su niñez anglosajona.

Viking Dig

There was an impromptu 'Viking Dig in Y5 Ash Class.


After reading Archaeologist's notes on a Viking burial site found in the UK, the children wanted to make the artefacts that had been listed. They then wanted to take on the role of the archaeologists and of the skeleton remains. Mrs Ford had to abandon the planned lessons and let the Children take charge!  By the end of the day Children had marked out the Viking boat that was buried. This contained 'remains' of men, women, children and animals along with daily objects needed for the afterlife. 


Mrs Ford observed the children developing communication skills and teamwork and planning and composition skills as they created their museum exhibit. The children also researched each artefact and discussed why it was needed for the afterlife.


A day of drama and research led to a whole lot of learning.


Ask your child about the Viking rituals and beliefs!

Year 5 Remember

On remembrance day, Ash Class watched a 'photo Montage' video showing images of war and of veterans from WW1 to the present day.  After this the class had a long-and very thoughtful-discussion about remembrance. 


Later, Mrs Ford was presented with these independent responses - produced in the lunchtime scribble books! Despite being in rough books, they show amazing thought and care from the children's hearts...We simply had to share!

Forest School

After playing emotions charades -outside- the children search forest school for emotion cards, which were pegged in the trees. They then made the emotions -emojis- using leaves, branches, twigs, stones etc. 


The children LOVED it... a fabulous lesson. 

Live Webinar with Adam Hills

Elm and Ash had a Live Webinar with Adam Hills.

He spoke about his love of writing and top tips on how to become an author. The children from both classes took part in a live drawing competition set by Adam. They also submitted questions and shout-outs beforehand. Gurdas had his question answered and Erin got a shout-out. 


We all had an excellent time.
