P5 News

Fasten your seatbelts and prepare your time machine! We are off to explore castles!

P5 children have been investigating motte and bailey castles, having a merry time with sand and lollipop sticks.  They have been reading for information about early castles and why they were built. Plans are eagerly being made to transform the class areas into the great hall of a castle.

In ICT we are going on a castle adventure where we will be designing our own coat of arms, budgeting for building a castle, dressing a knight in his armour and finding out what life was like in a medieval castle.

In maths we have been focussing on 2D and 3D shapes which is helping us to understand the structure of castles.

Last week we were busily rehearsing for the Community Showcase  – tuning our air guitars and shaking our rock and roll hair! We hope you enjoyed our performance and your visit to our class.
