Vikings came to Cam Everlands! What a fabulous day we had! We all dressed as our favourite Viking character and were visited by a famous Viking who took us through the whole day. We looked at Viking weapons, stamped our own coins, carried out a Viking funeral of King Cnut and had a glorious battle. Luckily, no one ended up in Valhalla, although that would have been a glorious death! We were amazed by how vicious the Vikings really were!
Home Learning off to a great start! Two fabulous lego creations - a lego ship and a lego scene from Beowulf! Well done!
The very lovely Tara visited us today to tell us about her life in Japan! It was fascinating. We dressed Mrs Stephens in a summer kimono, Evie in a celebation kimono and Amy in a winter kimono. We learnt that sandwich boxes were wrapped in beautiful fabrics, how to use fans, played with chopsticks and we made origami cranes! What a great day!
Outside learning in Year 5 - what beautiful weather for working outside!
Camfest Year 5 style! Wow! We had singing, dancing, jokes, riddles and the parents joined in the Macarena to finish! The children grew salads and prepared them with two of our lovely parent helpers, they made burgers and fruit kebabs and also sold Fathers Day Cards and fridge magnets which they had also made. Their festival outfits were Glastonbury worthy and they even face painted each other and teachers (also Mrs Avis) with glitter! They wrote their own festival script, organised the music brilliantly and the performance was worthy of the great Simon Cowell himself! Britain's Got Talent - I'd say Cam Everlands Year 5 have got more!
Tag Rugby Tournament 2018! We had an amazing day - fantastic weather, great sportsmanship, superb play and lots of fun! Well done to everyone who took part - you did us proud.
Preparations for our music festival are underway! Ground prepared, tidied and weeded. Trays prepared, planted and watered. Greenhouse built and secured. Excitement can now start to build!
As part of our Sport Relief week, Year 5 power walked for 10 minutes and we managed to cover 34,800 metres! What an achievement!
Today, we had a new teacher in Year 5! Amalie taught us how to make Viking Braids and we had a fabulous afternoon, braiding and enjoying Amalie's style of teaching. Thank you Amalie - we learnt such a lot today!
It was all very strange! Mrs Sinclair reported unusual lights in the sky, rushing towards her and then veering off course. An alien then invaded our classroom, a sweet, shy alien who turned his vocal translator on and agreed to be interviewed by us!
Viking Day! What an amazing time we all had, dressing up as Vikings, making our own shields and weapons, exploring Viking artefacts, acting out Viking battles and learning about Viking settlements.
