Class Poem


World Book Day

Year 5 have been studying War with Troy for our English this half term. War with Troy - The Iliad - was composed by Homer in about 750BC.  The Iliad is a very long poem about the anger of Achilles.

On World Book Day, 5A dramatized our favourite scenes from the story and filmed these in front of the green screen. The photos below show us in the process of filming

Our scenes include: Thetis and Peleus's Wedding, Paris's Choice, Paris and Menelaus’s Duel, Hector and Achilles’s Duel, and Priam begging to Achilles for his son’s body back. Watch the finished videos below.

5A Performing Hiawatha's Fishing

In English this half term, 5A have been working on the poem “Hiawatha’s fishing”. This is an extract from an epic poem called “The Song of Hiawatha”

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The extract narrates the story of a Native American called Hiawatha who challenges ‘The King of Fishes’ to see who is stronger.

5A spent a lot of time planning how their poem sections should be performed. We tried out different tones, volumes, intonations and came up with gestures to portray the character’s emotions and thoughts through our own performance of the poem.

For our final performance, we used the green screen to create the effect of being by the sea to fully immerse ourselves into the enactment.

Watch 5A perform their poem sections in front of the green screen!

5A Reading and Performing "Flanders Fields"

The children have been painting a picture of themselves on a ceramic tile, and when they are finished they will form a mosaic which will be mounted on a wall in the school. All the classes are participating so it should form a really amazing display!
