Year 5 have been reading the Just So stories written by Victorian Author, Rudyard Kipling. They have made Collages to go with the story ‘How the Whale got his throat’.
How the whale got his throat
Linking with the school’s anti-bullying week. The class created posters of the ‘Just So Rhino’. In the story, ‘How the Rhino got his skin’, the bullying Rhino got what he deserved – a skin full of cake crumbs, which itched and itched.
Don’t be a Just So Rhino!
Year 5 visited the Museum of Docklands as part of their study of Black History. They used the idea of ‘Abolition Tableware’ to make their own pottery.
Year 5’s Abolition Tableware, celebrating the abolition of slavery
The children also made silhouette pictures, to represent the ill-treatment of slaves to go with our poems.
Hope for Freedom
I am playing, joyful
They are here, packed with guns, bombs and threat.
Petrified, terrified, chains caged me,
Lost, imprisoned, confined and panicked,
Nowhere to go, no food, no water,
Cries and tears fill my mind,
Helpless and exhausted, we arrived
Like hell, no privacy, captivity,
Cries and screams.
Finally, hope has come,
Alive and free,
Smiles fill me up,
I am free!
I have attached a copy of the letter regarding this trip, the children will also have brought home a copy for your signature.
I have attached the medical form and the initial information form for your information.
