These are two of the highly informative videos which we have been using as part of our RSE learning. The pupils found them so useful, that they asked me to put them on our class page for future reference.

THE CURSE OF SAMSON ISLAND
This half-term, we have been reading Michael Morpurgo's fantastic story, 'Why the Whales Came'. Taking inspiration from a background event in the story, the pupils wrote a first-person narrative recounting the experience of Zachariah Woodcock, a character from the novel. Pupils then chose an appropriate video background to appear in, before recording themselves in front of the green screen.
More will be added over time, so keep an eye out!
Check out Year 5's amazing podcasts on the topic of Native Americans!
Check out Year 5 reading sections from their recent information text writing on the American civil rights activist, Rosa Parks. The pupils chose their favourite section to read as well as choosing a background that they felt suited the topic on which they were talking.
