Year 5 research

Year 5 were researching topics of their choice today with themes ranging from World War 2, Australia, dogs, coral reefs and The English Language.

They all used the I-pads but we still found time for the humble encyclopaedia.

Our explanation text topic ends today with our story, The Midnight Fox, being the focus after Easter.

Viking Day Year 5

Year 5 had their annual visit from a Viking today as part of their history topic.

They experienced the shield wall, the game of cubs and Viking artefacts.

They also learnt about life in Viking times, famous leaders and weapons.

The children always show surprise at the stories, changes and customs from 1000 years ago.

It is very important that they get to experience this fascinating part of English history just like they will experience the impacts of world and Victorian history next year.

Many thanks to our heavily armed friend from Copeland who visited us once again.

South Cumbria Music Festival

A huge “Well done” to all the children who took part in the South Cumbria Music Festival. You have all worked very hard to learn your lines and to polish the performance. You competed with confidence and were a polite audience to the other schools. Your teachers and Mrs Whiteley are very proud of you.
