British Values - The Rule of the Law
In Year 5, we learnt the importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, and how they are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. Pupils were taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken.

Viking Longhouse
We have been learning about Viking longhouses in topic. Longhouses were usually made of wood, stone or earth and turf, which kept out the cold better. They had no chimney or windows, so smoke from the open fire drifted out through a hole in the roof. Beds and benches lined the walls, and other features included lamps for light, heather bedding, wall hangings and rugs for warmth. In the winter animals slept inside too and were separated by a weaved partition. Weapons, that were used during battled, were hung up on the walls just in case the Vikings needed them quickly.

Performance Poetry

 

In Year 5, we performed a poem by Michael Rosen. We learnt the poem line by line and used actions to help us remember.

The Rhythm of Life

 

Hand on the bridge
feel the rhythm of the train.

 

Hand on the window
feel the rhythm of the rain.

 

Hand on your throat
feel the rhythm of your talk.

 

Hand on your leg
feel the rhythm of your walk.

 

Hand in the sea
feel the rhythm of the tide.

 

Hand on your heart
feel the rhythm inside.

 

Hand on the rhythm
feel the rhythm of the rhyme.

 

Hand on your life
feel the rhythm of time.
hand on your life
feel the rhythm of time
hand on your life
feel the rhythm of time.

 

From Michael Rosen's Big Book of Bad Things.
