Leeds Castle and Henry V111 - Friday 21st January

 

Year 5 had a fantastic trip to Leeds Castle, where we met 'Henry VIII' and his first wife Catherine of Aragon.....or at least two very good actors! We were escorted around the grounds of the castle with their Majesties, which was great fun!

The children also took part in a workshop to help them learn about the famous meeting between Henry VIII and Francois I of France, in 1520. This meeting was so spectacular in its scale and opulence, that it is known as The Field of Cloth of Gold. The children had the opportunity to dress up as various characters from the time, re-enacting their roles, including cooks, pages, ladies in waiting, and even royalty!

Term 1

The Kingdom of Benin - Animal tiles

 

This term, we have been learning lots about the Kingdom of Benin and its trade, arts, leaders and how they lived. They children discovered how the people of Benin were animists and that they believed animals held special powers. Subsequently, they designed and made their own tiles that incorporated a Benin design.

The children in Manatee class have been learning about an African call and response style of drumming. This is the end result of their experimenting with pace, tone and rhythm, merging their groups in to play together

Shakespeare Club

Year 5 began their Shakespeare Club this week, creating freeze frames of the two households in Much Ado About Nothing. We also spent some time learning about the relationships between the characters in each of the households. Can you spot the dastardly Don Pedro in these pictures? Or the sweet and innocent Hero? 

Term 2

Shakespeare Club were lucky to welcome Richard Navarro to the school to create a piece of music for their upcoming performance in Much Ado Nothing at the Marlowe Theatre. We also had time to learn a song from the play, which Wombat class were keen to show their classmates the next day.
