Spring 1 - Time Traveller 

Y5 Newsletter (Spr 1) Time Traveller >

Although this half term has been quite short, we have packed a lot in and enjoyed our Time Traveller topic. For our memorable experience, we ‘went back in time’ for the day and came to school dressed as someone from a period of British History of our choice. We had everything ranging from the 60’s, punks, Hippie’s and many more! It was great fun and each child had to be interviewed in role – this helped us to learn a lot about different periods of History in a short amount of time!

We also had great fun investigating time travel and designing and made our own time machines. We then boarded our time machines, wrote instructions about how to use them as well as an adventure story about our journey.

In literacy, we have been reading ‘Clockwork’ by Philip Pullman while exploring how to create tension and fear when writing. This culminated in writing our own scary stories, which had the teachers on the edge of their seats!

Finally, in Art we produced some fantastic paintings based on Salvador Dali’s famous ‘Clocks’ paintings.

Overall an excellent effort from the year five children!
