Thanks everyone for working so hard this week to rehearse and perform in our sharing assembly today. Great drama and writing which explored the racism and segregation laws in the U.S.A.. We marvelled at the courage and conviction of the civil rights protesters and how their struggle brought about changes to the law that promoted civil rights. Martin Luther King was the figurehead of that struggle and the book 'March On' inspired us to think about how we would like to change the world to make it a better place.
This week we planned and wrote our own speeches inspired by Martin Luther kings speech in 1963.
Secondly,Megan made a bread model this is what it looks like
Also today, we have our first sharing assembly of the year .If you came we hope you enjoyed it.

HaHThis half - term we are learning about Martin Luther King and his changes to the world. Today, its actually Martin Luther King day. We have been working very hard and doing different activities. We are learning about all the racism that happened and what would have happened if Martin Luther King didn't do what he did. We have also watched a movie to understand further information of what happened.
The children were quite shocked at first that such things happened, but know they feel glad because Martin Luther King sorted it out, so we don't have to because of our colour:
Be in different schools,
Have to give up your seat on the bus to a white people
And lots more!!!

5R have currently been learning about the Maya civilisation. We have been debating about buildings,objects,pictures and writing and to see which one was best for information it turns out that we need all of them to get the whole story. We were also answering some questions about what the Mayans built , wrote , drew and built.
For these past two days 5R have been very busy doing the Ancient Maya people in History and MARCH ON! in English
