Hi 5 Cedar!

I think it’d be really interesting to find out what you have enjoyed learning about so far in Year 5, and what you would like to know more about.

What have you enjoyed learning about so far?

Do you have anything in particular that you would like to learn about before the end of Victorians, Vampires and Villains?

Mr Sandhu

    Hello sir, this time I’m just going get on with writing this time, so anyway here goes a few of things that I have learned are these I will also tell you some of the things we have been doing in Year Five so now I will tell you. The things we’ve been doing in Year Five are these: Well in English we have been memorising play scripts. The play scripts we’ve been memorising is about Theseus and the Minotaur which is originated in Ancient Greece. It also has a city called Crete which was once the biggest city in the world however I think it is now New York city. So bye sir I will see you on Monday and just so know I just talked about Greece because in the past few days it is what we have been learning about. Next week, maybe, just maybe I will be telling you some more only if I learn more from Monday till Friday and then on Saturday and Sunday I will write some more. I’m hoping a lot more, so bye sir and I will see you on Monday bye!

    Oh, hello there didn’t notice you there sir why am I here oh I get it I’m here because you want me to tell you what I’ve learned about Greeks so far or Ancient Greeks whatever you prefer. Now going on about Ancient Greeks I have learned the 2 main myth’s Theseus and the Minotaur and also Perseus and the Gorgon’s head. Just so you know a Gorgon is a lady who looks beautiful by her appearances when she’s covering her hair but when she’s not covering her hair she’s ugly! I shouldn’t have said that it’s going to give me nightmares! Now Theseus and the Minotaur a Minotaur is a mythical creature(half this and half that) half man half bull beast! and Theseus kills it yeah go Theseus ha! The Greek king of gods is Zeus and his logo is the thunderbolt 2nd best god is Poseidon and 3rd is Hercules and were all married. The Greeks national animal is the grey dolphin and their national flower is the Bears Breech you like flowers don’t you then go there, and for Theseus and the Minotaur we’ve been doing some play scripts so bye sir look forward to seeing you on Monday a fresh start for school how I love school anyway bye see you on Monday.

    Hello Sir. I will tell you about some of the things that I have learnt in year 5 – our topic or creative curriculum whichever you prefer right now. I will tell you about Queen Victoria: she had 9 children – 4 boys and 5 girls – and they were indeed a naughty lot! They had to get taught properly; which leads us up to Dr Thomas Barnardo who saved a lot of children who lived in slums(in poor London streets where there was too much dirt and also diseases from animals like rats and mice).
    Now going on to Highwaymen, there were only 2 famous highwaymen that I know: Dick Turpin and Robin Hood. Robin Hood had a saying: ‘Rob the rich and feed the poor’ so he was good and bad!
    Finally, vampires or Dracula’s – then again whatever you prefer – popular myth says that they only live in 1 country: Transylvania. They will pick up anything you drop in their beloved country so, if you throw a bag of rice, when they bend down to pick it up that is your only chance to stab the stake through their vile hearts and then the vampire is killed! So bye Sir I will see you on next Tuesday.

    Hi Year 5!!

    Having read all of these posts about the things you have been learning about it seems as though you have been very busy indeed!! All your work on Queen Victoria is very interesting and your vampire study is quite scary but it’s great to see how interested you all are in it.

    Well done everyone!!

    What I have learnt this term about Queen Victoria:
    Well i have learnt 5 BRILLIANT facts about her life that i am going to tell you.
    1) Queen Victoria had 9 children (4 male 5 female).
    2) She decided to wear black after the death of Prince Albert, her husband.
    3) Queen Victorian was born on May 24, 1819 and disastrously died on the January 22, 1901. She lived for 82 years.
    4) Queen Victoria was only 18 when she came to the throne and she had a lot to learn. As queen, she thought she could do as she liked, and she quickly had to learn that she couldn’t.
    5) Queen Victoria was born at Kensington Palace, London.

    Hi Mr Sandhu,
    I will tell you what I have learned so far. I have learned that: Vampires will pick up anything you drop in their beloved country Transylvania, they’ll stop and have to pick it up. I have also learned that Queen Victoria had 9 children, 4 girls and 5 boys.

    Their jobs are very different to today. For Villains, I have just learned about the Highwayman who is a ghost! Scary!

    Last but not least, about India: for India I have learned about the Taj Mahal, a very famous monument. However, there is a story behind this. Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan used to love each other, they had 14 children but due to the 14th one, Mumtaz Mahal died while giving birth. So Shah Jahan called over 20’000 workers to build it, once they had finished he gave them the worst reward by chopping off their hands but as a result his 5th son put him in jail. When he died he was buried next to Mumtaz Mahal in the Taj Mahal.

    Oh what a love story! Anyway, Mr Sandhu, I’ll see you on Monday.
    See you.

    As the class found out … Queen Victoria’s name was not Queen Victoria; it was Alexandrina Victoria. We were very surprised to find out something like that.

    Hi Mr Sandhu
    So far I have learned about Victorians, Villains and Vampires. I found the Victorians the most fun and interesting. I liked learning about how they had the most disgusting and dangerous jobs ever.
    I would like to learn about what the rich Victorians did as they didn’t have to work. Also, I would like to learn what poor Victorians children had to do when they weren’t at work.

    Hi Mr Sandhu So far in Year 5 I have learnt about Victorians, Vampires and Villains. My favorite topic is Victorians, because they had very different jobs from toady . What i found out is that children used to have a better chance of getting a job in the Victorian times, however today they are not allowed to work. I would like to learn about famous Victorians and what they did.

    I liked learning about Dracula because it was scary and I enjoy horror. I also liked learning about Queen Victoria because she was a famous Queen; I didn’t know anything about her before.I would like to know what Victorian Villains eat and wear. I would also liked to know whether Vampires are real.

    Mr Sandhu, I have learnt about Queen Victoria; things like she was married to her cousin which was very interesting. A few other things such as, that she wore black when her husband died to pay her respects. This was fascinating to learn about.
