Year 5 hosted a Creative Cafe based on the story ‘The Tin Forest’ written by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. The children re-created the Tin Forest scene using junk modelling and tin foil. 
“There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten that was filled with all the things that no one wanted.” So begins Helen Ward’s tale of the Tin Forest where an old man lives who tidies the rubbish and dreams of a better place. With faith, ingenuity and hard work, he transforms a junkyard into a wonderland in this poetic modern fable.

On Friday, Year 5’s had an exciting Viking immersion morning. Children were split into three groups and completed three different activities. The three activities were:
  • Drama – identifying the feelings of Vikings and Monks after a Viking  attack on a monastery 
  • Geography – plotting a route by sea from Denmark, Sweden and Norway to Norwich
  • Art/DT – looking at the purpose of a longship and designing their own​


Year 5 have been writing their own Viking Myths based on traditional Viking Myths that they have been reading during Guided Reading sessions. Today, children worked in challenge partners to identify strengths in their work and areas for development. Children helped each other to work on their areas for development. 


Over the next half term, children are focusing on living things and their habitats. Y5 kicked off the topic by learning about all the different parts to a flower. Children tried to label a diagram at the start of the lesson (only confidently able to label a stem and petal). Then, they carefully dissected and explored lilies. By the end of the lesson, children were able to label all parts of a flower. The children were creative, engaged and asked lots of amazing scientific questions!
