Anti-Bullying Week

During Anti-Bullying week Year 5 went into each class to help children understand what bullying is and the difference between an Active and Passive Bystander.  We really enjoyed the week and hope that all children willbe Active Bystanders.

By Finlay Bradford and Ashleigh Corbett

During Anti-bullying week we performed to each class by carrying out role plays explaining what active and passive bullying is.  We produced some anti-bullying art, and looked at artists who showed bullying in picture form without using any words.  We also made posters where we could write about bullying as well as drawing.  We also wrote a poem about anti-bullying.  It was fun to practice and make our own role play performances although it was difficult to make sure we used the right language for the younger years.

In computing we've been focusing on coding a game on Scratch 2.  The aim of our game is to collect the falling carrots as a bunny in the time limit.  However, if you collect a mouldy carrot you lose a point.

World War I Topic

In topic we have been learning about World War I and what it was like to be a soldier in the trenches.  We have started to create our own World War I posters.  We retrieved our information about the Great War from books and the internet.  We worked collaboratively to create our posters.  We really enjoyed this activity.

Year 5 were very lucky to be able to handle genuine artefacts from World War I.  Ashleigh's Great, Great Grandad, Peter Parker, fought in the Great War and after morning duties decorated bomb shells.  Asheligh shared with us her Great, Great Grandad's tobacco tin issued to all soldiers in 1914 by Princess Mary.
