We finished our Hinduism topic with a day of fun activities including creating a class Rangoli pattern and designing henna hand patterns and Diwali posters
The early Anglo Saxons used a Runic alphabet. We had a go at making pendants using this alphabet to inscribe our initials.
For National Poetry Day, we had a poetry slam and really enjoyed performing in front of the rest of the class.
We have been learning about Ango-Saxon lifestyles and decided to have a go at making our own models of a typical Anglo-Saxon hillfort and houses. We realised that it wouldn’t have been easy for them to build structures strong enough to withstand enemy attacks and bad weather!
We are learning the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. We had a go at re-enacting the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
