Year 5’s Great Greek Experience!

Last Wednesday, Year 5 pupils at Tewkesbury C of E Primary school were visited by an actor from the company ‘Portals to the Past’ who helped bring their ‘It’s all Greek to me’ Theme to life. Once the pupils arrived, they were whisked into the hall – and 3000 years into the past –  to be greeted by a Greek soldier, who promptly set them a series of challenges which supported pupils learning and quenched their thirst for knowledge of ancient Greece. Year 5 were given the opportunity to wield sword and shield, play greek games, take part in a greek quiz and battle reenactment!

Football Champions

Congratulations to the Boys Football Team for a terrific display of skill and sportsmanship! As reigning champions, the bar was set high for the boys entering this tournament but they powered through and won every match, without conceding a single goal! Great work boys! Now on to the County Finals!

Year 5 Creative Curriculum news

We have been very busy in Year 5 with our Creative Curriculum over the last few weeks: we have been scientists exploring forces an designing parachutes; we have been geographers exploring the where? and when? of Ancient Greece and we have been story tellers, developing and devising our own stories based on Homer’s Odyssey.

Here are some photos of what we have been up to.
