Year 5 spent their afternoon amongst the highest of aristocracy at the Savoy Hotel. Virtually anyway! To launch their next English book; Kasper, Prince of Cats by Micheal Morpurgo, they began their lesson by going on a virtual trip through the streets of London, being stunned by the architecture of buildings whilst walking down the Strand. Once they arrived at the Savoy Hotel, a scrumptious Afternoon Tea was awaiting them inside the world-famous Thames Foyer. Children both at home and at school enjoyed delicious scones, cakes, sandwiches and a spot of tea whilst listening to the first chapter. Many brothers, sisters and parents were able to come along for our afternoon at the timeless hotel too!
This term, year 5 have been studying ‘Women in Mathematics and Science’ by Rachel Ignotofsky. Miss Murray contacted the author and illustrator to share some of the year groups work …. check out her response!!
Incredible scenes from year 5 who captivated the imaginations of their year group by bringing Space to the classroom. The teachers and children looked amazing and the children loved hearing more about the Literacy Tree chosen book Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly.
