Today, Years 5 & 6 thoroughly enjoyed half an hour of fun fitness led by Joe Wicks - online! They completed 10 thirty second interval training and certainly worked up a sweat! Well done...
What an amazing week it has been in Year 4! We have been absolutely blown away by the children’s performance and are extremely proud of every single child who took part in our production ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’! The singing, acting and performing from...
Year 4 have had a fantastic afternoon! After having spent time researching what makes a successful earthquake proof building, the children were given the opportunity to build their own! They were provided with a variety of resources such as: paper straws, spaghetti,...
Bienvenue! Wilkommen! Welcome! It has been a fantastic first week and a bit in Year 5, as the children have settled in extremely well! It’s a big jump up into Upper Key Stage Two but the children have coped maturely and with big smiles on their faces, which has been lovely to see! I can’t wait for our year to properly begin!
Creative Homework Deadline!
A week in the life of Year 5…
We have enjoyed reading our new story, ‘This is NOT a fairytale’ and discussing all of the various, interesting characters; we have looked a numbers in countless different ways for our maths unit on place value; then, we pondered space and what we could discover about the Earth, Moon and Sun; before travelling back in time to look at the Mayans and just why should we even know about them? Spoiler: they were very, very important (and interesting, too)! As well as all of the time, we even squeezed in a bit of forest school time, which the children all love – as you can see, with them standing proudly in their dens! As I said, a fantastic but very busy week, which I hope has set the tone for the rest of the term (year!) ahead.
Quick reminders for the children to have their PE kits in on a Monday (for the whole week), along with homework on the check point Mondays, as outlined on their homework grid. Every Wednesday for three terms, the children in 5J will also be swimming (which is very exciting) so please ensure swimming towels and costumes are packed ready for their Wednesday swim!
The children will also need to bring in their reading diaries, with three signed entries from an adult at home, weekly to be signed in school! Reading books will be coming shortly…
Phew! First week done and the children have settled in brilliantly. We have definitely ‘hit the ground running’!
