This week we have been learning about Viking raids.
This is a plaque that was given to the next of kin of Horace Bailey. All families of men killed in WWI were given one. It is made of bronze. These plaques became known as "The Dead Man's Penny" because they look similar to an old penny but bigger. We've been talking about WWI because our class book 'Private Peaceful' is set in WWI.
This week 5R have been very busy with the life cycle of a dandelion. We have made a draft of the cycle. Here are some great examples.

Yesterday , we had a Maya archaeologist come in to talk about the Maya. She told us all about her research in the Rainforest , check out her website at mayaarchaeologist.co.uk . We also made our own very colourful masks . Then we tried some Maya food : bean stew ,salsa dip and tortilla chips , we all loved them !!
Just average? Sorry about that. I thought the fractions work was pretty intense!
We have had a average week . In English we were pretending to be Friar Lawrence from Romeo & Juliet to write the letter to Romeo that was never got delivered. In maths we were learning about subtracting fractions( some people found it tricky while others didn't). In history we were learning about Mayan food. We wrote and drew pictures of Mayan food!
