Autumn 1

W/C 18th October 2021


We finished our history topic this week by making Viking Longboats. They were fantastic! Here are a few examples. 


This term the children have been working hard to learn the song Let the Spirit Fly from the Charanga music programme. They have spent time learning the words and this week we have started to put our own music to the song using different percussion instruments. Mrs Kehoe was very impressed with our playing!

Well done!



This week some of the year 5s have been learning how to safely use their bikes in the playground and on the road. They have worked really hard and enjoyed themselves.

Week 4 (W/C 20.09.21)


The children are really enjoying our current topic on the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, they are especially gripped by the epic Anglo-saxon poem Beowulf. This week they have pretended to be brave warriors and have written letters home to their families telling them about Beowulf's battle with an underwater demon.

Congratulations to this young man on his brilliant letter to Beowulf.

Continuing with forces work, this week the children were investigating air resistance. In groups of 3 they made a parachute each, changing one variable to test which one made the best parachute and had the most air resistance.

Week 3 (W/C 13.09.21)

Science - Forces. What fun we had this week investigating which surface exerted the greatest amount of friction on a toy car.

Friction is a force that holds back the movement of an object. Friction acts in the opposite direction to the movement of the object.


Different surfaces create different amounts of friction.

The amount of friction created by an object moving over a surface depends on the roughness of the surface and the object, and the force between them.

LO: Write Beowulf's speech that you imagine he made to the warriors on the eve of his battle with the monster Grendel.

An amazing speech with powerful imagery.

Week 2 (W/C 06.09.21)

Class 4 you have been amazing!

You have all settled into classroom life with a positive attitude to learning. You have all welcomed Mrs kehoe, anyone would think you had always had 2 teachers who job share! You can all be proud of yourselves.

In Literacy Class 4 are working on the Anglo Saxon epic poem, Beowulf (the all conquering hero).

Here they are making their partners into heroes by adding descriptive "hero sentences" to stickers and sticking them on each other.
