Navy Day

Published on 28th February

Year 5 held a Navy Day on Thursday 13th February, as part of their Rule Britannia topic. The shipmates scrubbed up well! They learned all about life in the Royal Navy from Mr Riley, and he taught them how to march correctly. They learned how to tie knots, made semaphore flags and sent messages to each other, took part in a treasure hunt, painted seascape and sang sea shanties. They also made hard tack biscuits and learned how sailors warded off scurvy - by eating lemons!

So began our work on Gulliver's Travels.

Autumn Term

Published on 23rd October

Year 5 had an amazing time at CYE this term! We tried our hand at sailing, kayaking, tunnelling, raft building and the assault course. Lots of the children were a bit scared to try some of the activities (those tunnels were really dark!) but everyone showed lots of courage and resilience and tried something new. Some people really surprised themselves with what they could achieve!
