For their class assembly, Year 5 chose to share their love of poetry through the story of ‘Room on the Broom’ by Julia Donaldson. Through the use of narrators and actors, Year 5 told the story about a witch and her cat who invite a collection of animals, a bird, a dog and a frog, to join them on the witches broom, though her cat thinks it will get too crowded. Her new friends make themselves useful helping them find her belongings. However, the witch is threatened by a fearsome dragon and her new friends know just what to do! The story is told through rhyming poetry and Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed rehearsing and performing. Year 5 ended their assembly singing ‘Count on Me’ by Bruno Mars. They were amazing! Well done to them all.
