Year 5HB

Buddhism

03 Oct 2019

Hello everyone,

This week Year 5 have been learning about Buddhism. We have focussed on the guidlines set out. We have looked at the Four Noble Truths, The Eightfold path and the Five Precepts. We acted out each part of the Eightfold path in groups. We thought about compassion through the story of The Monkey King and focussed on precepts and made some for ourselves.

In music we have been rapping Shakespeare's sonnet 18. We were in four groups and each had a line to say. It was really fun making Shakespeare's sonnet so modern, we hope to include it in our performance of Hamlet.

In the afternoons this week we have been busy rehearsing Hamlet. We have focussed on our entrances and exits this week, and how we move around the stage. It isn't long until our workshop so we need to work hard to learn our lines!

Our Eco Warriors and Eco Leaders have been really busy this week too, and we have a lot in 5HB! They have been working hard to make and keep the school as eco as possible, well done team!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Bowater
