Judaism Day: As groups entered Class 5, we focused on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. In this activity, children learnt about the various ritual foods which are eaten during Rosh Hashanah and the ceremonial blowing of a ram's horn, called a Shofar. Children were tasked to create their own Shofar by decorating them in pictures and symbols relating to Rosh Hashanah.
This week, in Literacy and Topic, Class 5 have been researching Tudor crimes and punishments. We started the week reading a series of simple riddles, then we created mood boards about various punishments that were inflicted in Tudor times. In Literacy, we applied our inference skills to a Tudor poem, then looked at the structure, language and features of a riddle. Finally, Class 5 wrote their riddles about a certain punishment and performed them for Class 4 to solve; can you guess with punishment each child is talking about?
Week 2: Class visited Crucial Crew! Today we learnt about different aspects of safety and the consequences of our actions; this included: Bus etiquette, emergency first, e-safety and traffic awareness. It was an enjoyable day out!
Class 5 became royalty this week as we kicked off our new topic, Off with her Head! Not only did Class 5 dress up as Tudors, bringing in some fantastic pieces of home-made jewellery, but we also tracked the Tudor family tree.
