WELCOME TO MORPURGO CLASS
Here at Lyminster Primary School we believe that the Year 5 children should be given the opportunity to grow in confidence as young people both academically and personally. As they enter the Upper Phase, we aim to prepare them for their final stage of learning in primary school. We continue to help them develop as independent learners who can thrive and progress through the experiences of a wide and broad-based curriculum. We continue to develop their confidence skills and encourage them to become naturally curious learners.
God is Loving
During this term we have had great fun learning all about the Greeks! The children have looked at the geography of this country and compared it to the UK plus studied the food grown and eaten there. The children worked hard to produce their own fact sheets all about Greece where they researched their information and presented it neatly with the features of an information text, such as headings, sub-headings, captions. We have also had a GReek Day where we focused on the Ancient Greeks and enjoyed dressing up.
We made Moussaka in stages. First making the white sauce then the meat mixture (and a veggie option!) then we sliced and baked the aubergines and potatoes and finally layered it all up. We served up our dishes on the day of the Restaurant Wars and received a huge amount of very positive feedback and...won! Well done Year 5!
All had great fund dressing up as Ancient Greeks and taking part in the following activities: Greek myth drama workshop, Ancient Greek writing, Ancient Greek Maths, Making clay Greek vases and Greek dancing to Zorba the Greek! The children all looked fantastic and joined in fully with all the activities.
Skellig Workshop at The Littlehampton Academy
We have been reading the book Skellig by David Almond and all have thoroughly enjoyed the story. Year 5 then got the opportunity to travel to and take part in this workshop where they all made brilliant clay figures of Skellig and added wings made of wire and paper. Our thanks to TLA for hosting and organising this.
Final mini topic- Kensuke's Kingdom, Michael Morpurgo
We will be reading and studying this book, linking our written work and our art work to it.
