Year 5 wrote letters to Abraham Lincoln to ask for his help in putting an end to slavery. We designed flags that represented us and our right to freedom. Then we went on a march, chanting for freedom and to deliver our letters to the White House.
We were studying all about the everyday life of the Vikings. We made Viking bread, which we discovered without yeast was more like a pizza. We topped our bread as the Vikings would have with honey and fruit grown at the time.
Summer term 1:
Our topic this term is 'Sun and sacrifice' which includes everything Mayan and Mesoamerican! The children discovered the treasures of Tikal by exploring the jungle, climbing the pyramid and solving the clues!
