Chris Connaughton Visit - Robin Hood
On Thursday 27th September, Year 5 had the pleasure of welcoming author and story teller Chris Connaughton. He re-told the Tales of Robin Hood to introduce their new English unit of work on narrative writing. He stimulated writing for a variety of writing for different purposes throughout the day, leading to children creating ballads and poetry as well as letters in character as Robin Hood and Maid Marion.
During the Spring Term, as part of our DT unit we created our own delicious bread rolls. The children had to use skills such as following instructions for a recipe, measuring, kneading and shaping their dough. We then added a variety of sweet and savoury toppings before letting the dough rise and then bake. After waiting patiently, the children saw their finished product and of course they ate a sample, but for some the whole roll was consumed!
