The Silver Donkey

22 November 2018

Another exciting week in Year 5. We have been looking at the wonderful story of 'The Silver Donkey' by Sonya Hartnett. The children have really enjoyed learning about the adventures of the characters and this week we have been using our debating skills to write a balanced argument. The children have been sharing some brilliant ideas which show how well they have embraced this lovely book. 

In our Discover lessons, we are looking at 'Crime and Punishment throughout British History' and this week we were focusing on Anglo-Saxon crime and punishment. The children were very keen to explore how different it is to modern day British justice.  

Last week, Year 5 were chosen to assist with the Key Stage 1 Intra-sports morning. So many other teachers have commented to us how well behaved the children were, and how caring and encouraging they were to the younger members of our school. Well done Year 5! Keep up the good work!
