Welcome to the Year 5 Team
Exploring Boudicca Through Drama
These are the final freeze frames we created to show how different groups of people felt before Boudicca's rebellion against the Romans in 60AD.
Here is a slideshow of the preparation work we did. We explored the different groups of people at the time - traders, Celtic farmers, slaves, Roman soldiers, the Roman Governor (Tiber) and the Iceni tribal leader (Boudicca) - and thought about how they would feel about each other and current events in Britain.
Using Sticks to Create Polygons
As part of our celebration of The Promise, year 5 used sticks to help them reason about 2D shapes. After making different shapes, they identified its name and explained how they knew by describing its properties.
Writing Leaf Poetry
Inspired by watching The Promise, year 5 wrote some incredibly creative Haiku poems, using personification and description to bring the leaves to life!
