Story writing in Year 5


We have been learning about descriptive stories. We used a WAGOLL text from Anne Fine's book 'The Chicken Gave it to Me' to get ideas about how to show feelings and emotions in a story. We innovated the story to write our own version from a different characters point of view. 


Here are two of our stories:

- Ayaan - Horowitz

- Aaliyah - Horowitz

We found a real mummy!


To develop our understanding about how the Ancient Egyptians influenced us today, we went to the Leeds City Museum. We explored different exhibitions of the museum, mummified a body and even found a real mummy. We had fun and learned lots about the Egyptians. 

Walk like an Egyptian!


As part of our PE learning this half term, the girls in Year 5 have been learning to dance to music from different cultures. We learned how to dance 'like an Egyptian'. We then created our own dance routine to the music.
