Year 5 – 22/03/24 | Trip to British Museum

The highlight of our week in Year 5 was our trip today to the British Museum, aimed at enriching the children’s understanding of Ancient Greece. We embarked on a journey via train and tube to Russel Square, and upon our arrival, we were treated to an engaging presentation in a remarkably impressive lecture theatre! The presentation delved into Greek myths and provided insights into identifying characters depicted on Greek pottery through visual clues. The presenter was very impressed with the children’s knowledge!

Following a satisfying lunch break, we ventured into the Ancient Greece galleries, where we undertook tasks focused on the artefacts there. These tasks put our observation and detective skills to the test. I must commend the children for their exemplary behaviour throughout the day; they were a joy to accompany. Special thanks are owed to Mrs Heymoz for organising the trip following her teaching of the history topic this term, and also to Mr Wilson who gave up his day to accompany us.

Home learning this week is to ensure all lyrics to songs for the Way of the Cross service are learnt by heart, so that we raise the roof on Tuesday evening! Practise here.

Please also practise this week’s spellings (words with silent letters):


On Wednesday next week, we will be doing a class walk as part of our Lenten fundraising events. I am planning to take them through the nearby fields, so please ensure they have 2 pairs of footwear with them: 1 pair that they don’t mind getting muddy on the walk, and 1 pair that they can change into back at school.

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss Donatantonio
