We have been reading the book 'Floodland' by Marcus Sedgwick which then inspired our English work. We have analysed poetry and written personification poems based on rain and used a range of poetic devices. We did some artwork inspired by the text in which we used wax crayons and watercolours to create an impression of Van Gogh's 'Starry Night',
In History, we have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons. We learnt about the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. In History we learnt about Viking long ships which then inspired our artwork in which we used collage and watercolours. As well as this we made Anglo Saxon brooches using clay.
We have read a range of texts since we have been in Year 5 and we have written book reviews to explain why we would recommend these texts to other people to encourage them to read them too.
