Welcome to Year 5
The children in year 5 have had a fantastic couple of days learning all about bread. Each class learnt about a range of different herbs that are grown in England and how these herbs were used for a range of things during the Anglo-Saxon period. The children had a play with yeast and learnt how Co2 is given off when mixed with warm water and sugar. Finally, the children made their own loaf of bread to take home and try. Make sure to fill out the homework sheet with your adult once you have baked your bread.
The children in Year 5 have had a fantastic day learning all about the Anglo-Saxons. They have had the opportunity to study real artefacts, learn a Saxon dance, learn about place names, play a variety of Anglo-Saxon games and to finish the day off be told a story about the Anglo-Saxon gods. The children have really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to learning more about our topic.

‘The knuckle bones were fantastic to play because they looked really cool and it was really interesting learning how to play them and I would definitely play the game again. It was really cool that they were real sheep knuckles.’ Charlie 5M
