Year 5 is such a wonderful year!

Spring 1 Update

This half term has been an exciting one for children in Year 5.  They have participated in History Day, where children were able to come dressed as Vikings for the day.  The day was filled with fun activities, including making their own Viking purse!

During DT lessons, the children have designed and made their own musical instruments from junk materials.  Mrs Wathudura was lucky enough to watch a small performance by Sienna class, too.
