Cherry Class Years 4 and 5

Miss Smallwood and Mrs Day would like to welcome you to Year 5. Here we pride ourselves on creating an inspiring, challenging and  supportive environment that promotes a love of learning and a positive 'Growth' mindset.  In addition to working hard and striving to achieve excellence, pupils are encouraged to grow as individuals, discussing ideas and opinions and developing personal and interpersonal skills.
Year 5 - Cherry - Class teacher is Miss Smallwood supported by Mrs Day.

At the moment our work in Literacy is based upon William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.

Having put ourselves into groups, each group were given a section of the back story to Hamlet. We had to create a peformance for our section and then put our dramas together to discover how Hamlet’s father had died, who had killed him and how Hamlet’s uncle had come to marry his mum. Whilst some of our predictions from the previous lesson were correct, some weren’t! For example, we now think the romance that ends in rejection is to do with Hamlet and Ophelia!  

We have shared some photos of this on our gallery.
