We have been using our model text to act out the first scene of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’
We discussed the dynamics of bullying and how we can be part of the solutions
We wrote statements about how we can be united against bullying to make real change
As part of anti bullying week, we talked about how it is cool to be kind to others and how exactly we can be kind to others.
We wrote a post it note each containing an idea about how we can show kindness.
We wrote speeches from the perspective of King Henry VIII/Queen Elizabeth I to the people of London to give them warnings about their behaviour during the spread of The Black Death.
We have researched Tudor health advice and illnesses and put together drama sketches of a doctor and a patient.
Did you know: Some Tudors believed in magic to protect them and wouldn’t wash with water as they believed they would be infected by it!
We are using voice recognition on our chrome books to proofread our writing
We have researched a certain element of Tudor life and shared our findings with the class. 5GD have been the teachers this afternoon!
Snow fun! By Safiyyah
Surrounded by snowy trees, I arrived at my destination. I had come to stay in a cosy, warm log cabin in the alluring Scottish Highlands to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. In my snug cabin, there was a roaring fire and flickering ashes. I was boarded by natural beauty. I decided to go for a long walk in the wintry woods.
Deep in the forest, I trudged through the frigid snow and embarked on my delightful walk. I could hear the sound of cute owls hooting and the snow falling. It was a beautiful night. There was a frozen river and a shaky bridge. I tried to take in all the ambience . The crunch of the branches beneath my boots was so satisfying. The leaves became yellow or orange if they hadn’t already fallen off yet! The skyscraping trees were covered in bitter snow. I could feel the snow brushing up against my numb skin.
I heard my mother call out “Dinnertime!” So I ran back home for a lovely large feast.
As I set off into the cold wilderness, I spotted towering, snow covered pine trees with snow flakes elegantly falling off.There were frozen berry bushes dotted around the glimmering carpet of snow. The freezing wind howled like a wolf , it sent an ice cold shiver down my spine.There was a beautiful , trickling waterfall with icicles coming down.
I could hear the crunching of snow quietly underneath my feet. Looking up, I could see the empty, lonely nest sat on a long branch.At night, I could see the magical , bright Northern Lights flying through the stars. By Lawson
We pretended to be the protagonist from our model text and the class asked questions to see how we were feeling at different stages of the story.
We have been researching major Tudor events and placing them on a timeline to start off our new topic! We’ve also been trying out voice searches on google.
