What’s VE Day? VE Day is a day commemorating the official end of the Second World War. Victory in Europe Day, generally shortened to VE Day or V-E Day, celebrates the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of armed forces on 8 May 1945.

 

Unfortunately, we might not all be able to celebrate together but we will keep our chin up and try to celebrate with loved ones at home. Until more is known, for now, it’s thought that all former VE Day plans will be moved to be celebrated on the weekend of the 15-16 August, to coincide with VJ Day – which commemorates the surrender of Imperial Japan during World War II.

 

However, this week to celebrate and remember the day we have set a number of activities for you to do at home. Please take lots of lovely photos and send them it. I would love to see them! 

 

I hope you have a lovely day celebrating!

Some people laughed, some people swore and others kept silent, as the train shook and lurched on its way.

But in a sudden surge at one of the stations, they found themselves being carried forwards, hurling out on to the platform.

Suddenly, without any warning, there was a commotion up ahead. Three figures in uniform stood at the top of the stairs.

A man was protesting loudly that he had left his pass at home.

"We can't stay on the bridge while the police are here," panted Naledi when they had got past.

All three raced back down the road, but just as they came in sight of the station, there was the big police van pulling off.

"This time I'm really going to hold on to you," she told them, taking each firmly by the hand.

RE

Read and retell the story of the Beautiful Gate in your own words 

 

By agreement the believers met together daily in the Temple. They had their meals from house to house, eating their food with gladness and simple-heartedness, praising God and having the good-will of all the people. Day by day God added many to the number of the saved.

One day Peter and John were on their way to the Temple for the hour of prayer at three in the afternoon. A man who had been lame from birth, and who was placed daily at what was called the Beautiful Gate of the Temple, was being carried there to beg from the people who went in. When he saw that Peter and John were about to go in, he asked them to give him something. But Peter fixed his eyes on him, and John did also, and said, "Look at us." And the man looked attentively, expecting to receive somethi ng from them. Peter said, "I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!" And he took him by the right hand and raised him up. And immediately his feet and his ankles received strength and he leaped up, stood on his feet, walked about and went with them into the Temple, walking, and leaping and praising God.

When the people who saw him walking about and praising God knew that he was the man who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple, they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him; and as he still kept close to Peter and John, the astonished crowd rushed to them in what was called Solomon's Porch.

Then Peter said to the people: "Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this? Or why do you stare at us as though we had made him walk by some power or goodness of our own? The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our forefathers, has honored Jesus his servant, whom you delivered up and denied before Pilate when he had decided to let him go. But you denied the Holy and Just One and asked that a murderer be set free and put to death the One who brings life to men! But God brought him back from the dead, as we bear witness. Jesus, through faith in his name, has given strength to this man whom you see and know. Yes, it is faith in him that has made this man perfectly well in the presence of you all.

"And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. Turn then to God and live right lives that your sins may be forgiven, so that God may send you strength. After raising his Servant from the grave, God sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wickedness."

While they were speaking to the people, they were interrupted by the priests, the officer in charge of the Temple, and the Sadducees, who were angry because they were teaching the people and telling how Jesus rose from the dead. They arrested the apostles and, as it was already evening, put them in prison until the following day.

The next morning a meeting of their rulers, elders and scribes was held in Jerusalem at which the high priest Annas, and Caiaphas, John, Alexander and all the members of the high priest's family were present. They made the apostles stand before them and inquired, "By whose power and in whose name have you done this?"

Then Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders of Israel, if we are being examined this day for a good deed done to a lame man, to find out how he was healed, you and all the people of Israel should know that this man stands before you completely cured through the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified and whom God raised from the dead. He is the stone despised by you builders that has become the chief corner-stone. And salvation comes by none other, for there is no other name under heaven revealed among men through which we can be saved."

When they saw how bold Peter and John were and found out that they were uneducated and ignorant men, they were astonished but they remembered that they had been with Jesus. Ordering them to go out from the council, they said among themselves, "What are we to do with these men? All the people who live in Jerusalem know that a wonderful miracle has been done by them, and we cannot deny it. But to keep this thing from spreading any farther among the people let us stop them by threats from speaking in the future to any one in the name of Jesus." So they called them and ordered them not to teach nor speak a word in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, "Decide for yourselves whether it is right before God to obey you rather than God; for we cannot give up speaking of what we have seen and heard."

Seeing the man who had been healed standing beside them, the rulers could say nothing. So, after further threatening them, they let them go, being unable to find any reason for punishing them on account of the people, for they were all praising God for what had been done.

There will be home learning tasks to complete (I'll direct you to these on Seesaw) but you should also be reading/responding to the Bug tasks daily too. I'll be marking your responses and assess/feedback on these. If you are answering the questions confidently and accurately then you can still move your reading band. 

 

You can also message me to tell me how you are all doing and how you are keeping busy. I'd love to hear from you all!

 

Hopefully see you soon

Easter Activities Year 5 

Hi all, as we near the Easter holidays I want to wish you and your family a very Happy Easter! Thank you, for all of your hard work! I have loved seeing your photos and look forward to seeing more over the coming weeks!  Not only is it now our half term holiday, but it is a time to welcome Spring. This poem by William Wordsworth, always springs to mind when I think of Easter, and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do. This is a great one to learn or just to read and listen to. 

 

 

There are some Easter activities for you to do below and I hope that you enjoy doing them. The idea is to have fun with your family and to take this time to remember, that not only is it time for Easter eggs but it is also the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

I look forward to hearing all about your Easter holidays! 

Best Wishes, 

Miss Oates

Young Writers' The Adventure Zone Competition

 

Year 5 have had some amazing news! Four children have been chosen to have their mini sagas, published in the Young Writers  - Adventure Zone Saga book. From out of 13,000 entries, these children stood out and wowed the editors. They were impressed with their writing and have been celebrated in school and we look forward to seeing their published work! 

Mexico Day

 

To tie in with our Mexico topic, Year 5 had a Mexican day at school. We learnt how to speak in Spanish, all about the Day of the Dead, used our art skills to create a Mexican flag and used our design skills to create a 3D sugar skull. Alongside this, we conducted a taste test using our senses and discovered not to judge a food by the way it looks – yes guacamole, we’re talking about you. The foods we tasted were sour cream, nacho cheese, hot salsa and guacamole. We had a great time and are looking forward to learning more about Mexico!

 

 

Bellatrix Le Snake 

 

As part of our topic work, Year 5 and were visited by a special guest this week – Bellatrix Le Snake! It was a real treat for the children! They got to stroke her and were told all sorts of interesting facts about how to care for and look after snakes! The children were full of questions and were very sensible when handling her.  She was a very well-behaved guest and we would love to see her again!

 

 

 

 

Anglo-Saxon Day

 

As part of our Anglo-Saxon topic, Year 5 were treated to an inspiring workshop all about Anglo-Saxon life. The children experienced Saxon England, from the hierarchy and etiquette of the Lord’s Hall, the language and the story of Beowulf, through to the burial of a Saxon king. 

 

 

Deforestation Debate 

 

This term, Year 5 have been learning all about Mexico . We have learnt about the huge impact that deforestation has had on the Lacandon Rainforest.  The children all researched and presented the pros and cons of chopping down one of our most treasured, natural resources. As a result of our research, we had a class debate – where we discussed the positives and negatives of logging. We had a fantastic time and were able to debate and present our opinions and views while counter-arguing with classmates. We were able to present our case to each other, while taking on-board the thoughts and opinions of others.

 

Martial Arts Taster 

 

Ever wanted to know how to defend yourself? Well, this term Year 5 had a taster session in martial arts! They were all taught all about balance, weight distribution, hand eye coordination, technique and the discipline needed to be a martial arts master! All of the exercises were carefully designed to help the children have fun and to give a great cardio workout. It was a positive, high energy session for all involved.

 

 

Autumn 1

 

English

Hear and Listen well, and I will tell you a tale that has been told for a thousand years and more. It maybe an old story, yet it troubles and terrifies us now as much as it ever did, for we still fear the evil that stalks out there in the darkness and beyond. "Michael Morpurgo - Beowulf"

The children will be looking at the classic fiction story and writing as journalists about the terrifying attack on the mead-hall. The children will also have an opportunity to write the final battle scene between Grendel and Beowulf, applying the grammar they have been taught. (Prepositions and Relative clauses)

 

The children will finally study classic poetry looking at "The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll"

They will answer comprehension questions, make wanted posters and write the story from another point of view.

 

Topic

Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Year 5 will find out about the life of the Saxon's, including how they lived and where they came from. The children will be designing and making Saxon shields, as well as using Saxon Runes to write their names and using Roman Numerals.
