Term 1

In English this term, we have based our work around “Beowulf” by Michael Mopurgo. It is a story based in the Anglo-Saxon era, which is our topic of this term. We started off by writing a newspaper report, before moving onto diary entries, and ending the term writing our very own quest tales, based on the story of Beowulf. Here are some pictures of us identifying features of newspaper articles to help us write our own – can you spot the “newspaper features” song one group made up??

All of Year 5 went to the Dean Fields Study Centre in the Forest of Dean at the beginning of Term One. We want to thank everyone who made this trip possible! It was so much fun – we had lots of time to explore a variety of activities, from problem-solving to tunnelling, orienteering to bush-craft. We worked on skills such as teamwork and perseverance in small groups whilst we were there.
