Year 5 learn about Native American tribes
This term year 5 have been learning about Native American tribes. We have been learning about the Battle of Little Bighorn, Sitting Bull, about Pocahontas’ real life, about how they told their stories by using story sticks and also about the games that they played. This afternoon, we did a traditional Native American ceremony - a pow wow - and we got the chance to find out new facts about Native Americans including things such as totem poles, winter counts and more. We made our own war bonnets and everyone made a Native American bag. We had a lot of fun.
