Year 5/6 History competition – deadline extended until Monday 13th June

Get your pupils to bring the past to life

We would like our children in Yr5 and Yr6 to enter the History Association writing competition. If you ran out of time over half-term then now you’ve got a chance to enter!  Please find all of the information about this below:

You can take a look at some of the past entries here:

One of the key attributes of historical fiction is that it has a convincing setting in a past time and place. Pupils can set their stories in ANY* period or place in the past, so the story can fit in with and extend any historical topic you may be studying. Winning students will each receive a cash prize of £25 and an engraved Bath Aqua Blue glass paperweight.

*While we encourage and accept stories from a wide variety of periods and settings, we recognise that some periods and topics carry sensitivities that do not lend themselves easily to fictionalised accounts.

  1. Across Years 5 and 6 there will be two prizes for the best individual story.
  2. There is also a prize for the best fictional historical character in a convincing historical setting. Three prizes will be on offer here across all year groups.

What are the judges looking for?

Stories in each category are shortlisted by panels of student readers where possible. The shortlist is then judged by our primary and secondary expert panels. Judges are looking for:

  • Historical accuracy – even down to the choice of names characters are given and any props additional to the historical setting
  • A riveting read with a good plot!
  • A convincing story – i.e. is it plausible that these events and/or this character could have existed at the time?
  • Use of historical knowledge to feed the plot, context and character
  • Effective use of historical vocabulary and literary conventions, including where dialogue is included in the story
  • Creative and interesting perspectives of story-telling. In the past we have received an entry telling the story of a siege from the perspective of the castle!
  • We recommend a minimum story length of 400 words.

Entries must be emailed to asktheoffice@muxtonprimary.co.uk by Monday 13th  June 2022.  

If you are looking for inspiration, don’t forget to take a look at some of the books listed in our Young Quills historical fiction award. You can find past entries here. You can also view our webinar recording on historical fiction with author Tony Bradman, whose book Anglo Saxon Boy (Walker Books) won the Young Quills award in 2018 in the ‘ages 7-9 years’ category.

Year 5 Homework 26.5.22

For Homework over half term, we would like the children to prepare some information about the 1960’s era. They may like to research a famous person from the 1960’s, look at the types of clothes that were worn, any famous brands, music and films that were popular at the time. Children may like to complete this on a PowerPoint presentation or on written notes. If you would like to send us the work online please email to Year5@Muxtonprimary.org.uk

This will be due on or by Wednesday 8th June, ready to present to the class on Friday 10th.

Please see information that has been posted:

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee we will holding a special celebration day on Friday 10th June. We are calling the day, ‘What the Queen has seen’ as we dress up as famous figures from the different decades that the Queen has been on the throne. We would like every child to prepare some information about their decade that they can share out loud with the rest of their class. The aim of the day is to give the children an insight into just how long the Queen has ruled for and a sense of chronology around some of the events that have taken place in living memory.

If you are struggling for ideas with what to wear then please use the links below. Your child can come as ‘a person’ from their given decade if you are finding a historical figure difficult; they can wear clothes that look like they would have been worn during their decade and their presentation can be about the decade in general.
