The Lady of Shalott

In our English lessons we have been reading The Lady of Shalott, it is a very mysterious narrative poem.

We really enjoyed it, we compared it to another narrative poem we have read ‘The Highway Man.’

Then we wrote our own descriptions of the setting. We created a vivid picture in our reader’s mind, using specific nouns for the names of the plants and trees.

Trip to Haydock Race Course

Today year 5B went on a trip to visit Haydock Park, we got to run the race course before the horses, we also used lots of maths skills to calculate the perimeter of the parade ring and the length of the track.
