Why do so many countries speak English?

Hi Year Five,

This term we are going to be looking at the effect that the British Empire has had on India and Pakistan. We will be looking at how India has changed since they became independent from the British Empire. We will be finding out about Gandhi and how he helped India become independent.

What do you know about Gandhi?
You will be writing discussion texts and reading the story of Rama and Sita.
At the end of the term we will be putting together our performance for the Children’s Shakespeare Festival. Remember we have the character of Macbeth up to the point when he has Banquo killed. Please feel free to post me your ideas, I’m going to need all the help I can get!!!

Madness, Murder and Mayhem

Welcome back to what I hope is going to be an exciting term. As you already know we are going to be studying and acting the Shakespeare play Macbeth. The final product of all this will be performing on stage at the Lowery in June, so lots of exciting things to look forward to. Talking of exciting things it’s the Lleder Hall trip this term, I bet some of you are already packing!!!!! I hope you enjoy it and come back and tell Miss Cross and I about all the exciting things you did.

Keep an eye on the blog because I will be putting (with the help of Mr. Cowburn) examples of some of the work that you have been doing this term, especially the bits that we film, so that you can share it with your parents and family.

I would love to hear about your thoughts on what we are doing this term and for you to share any writing that you have done outside of school.

I hope you enjoy this term as much as I know I will.

Theseus and the Minotaur

I’ve been really impressed with the drama work that you produced during our work on Theseus and the Minotaur. Miss Cross and I have both enjoyed watching what you have created. I wanted to share some of the pictures with you.

You finished the week by writing a brilliant class poem that I would like to record and add to the blog but for now we will have to make do with the written version.

 

The Walls Whisper.

Beware what lies ahead

Because you might become dead.

Going in you will see bones and skeletons beneath thee

If you come out you will see King Minos angry, so you must flee.

Blood splattered everywhere,

I don’t like it in the air.

Skeletons, skeletons covered in blood scattered around without a care,

Screaming and shouting everywhere!

Shattered bones falling all around,

Hear them creak, what a sound.

The cracked bones of people that have been burst,

Even the spattered blood that had been cursed.

Beaten skulls scattered all around,

Hearing people’s heart beats pound.

Blood splattered screams through the labyrinth,

Fast heart beats as the children crawl.

You see the sleeping minotaur,

Don’t wake him up he won’t ignore.

I feel green!

The minotaur is so mean.

The minotaur is extremely ashamed,

It’s the king who is truly to be blamed.

Innocent children go to the blood splattered labyrinth every single day,

When Theseus defeated the minotaur the children shouted “HURRAY!”

 Because of Theseus Athens was safe,

From the horrid King who fed us as bait.

The minotaur has been defeated,

Theseus’ mission has been completed.

Why does Ancient Greece matter to us?

Hello Year Five.

A new year and another new topic and one I know a lot of you have been looking forward to. We are going to be looking at Ancient Greece and how they have had an impact on the modern world.

Some of the questions we will be looking at are:

How do we know about Ancient Greece?

What did the Greeks believe?

What have the Greeks left behind?

I know a lot of  you have already done some research so here’s your chance to share with everyone else what you have found out.

Use this website to find out lots of things about Ancient Greece and share them with the rest of us. Don’t forget the Horrible History websites and you tube, they are full of information about how the Greeks lived.
