Outdoor adventures in 5JL12-12-2017 | 16:00:21 | No Comments

Today 5JL experienced winter in all its glory with a wintry walk and snowball fight. We looked for clues to the season and thought about which animals had visited our fields in the snow. Then we collected some sticks to make some festive decorations in class. A lovely afternoon was had by all 🙂

A very big well done to Chloe in 5KB for being this week’s writer of the week. Chloe worked really hard to write a super recount of our trip to Englesea Brook. It was full of detailed descriptions and was a pleasure to read. Well done Chloe – 5 dojos

Perimeter Problems01-12-2017 | 15:40:02 | No Comments

In maths, we have been learning about perimeter of rectilinear shapes. Today we were challenged with creating our own shapes that had a specified perimeter. In pairs, we drafted our shapes on squared paper first. Then we had to convert the measurements to metres and then draw our shapes outside on the playground. 

Englesea Brook Trip30-11-2017 | 16:54:54 | 3 Comments

Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic day out today at Englesea Brook. We were immersed in Victorian tradition as we learned about their schooling and technologies. Watching a Victorian picture show was a little different from visiting the cinema and the children found that Victorian school life was certainly different to modern schooling. A big thank you to all of the adults who came along to help us on our trip. And just in case we forget one of our lessons taught today, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness!”

Well done to Maggie for a fantastic story ending to Street Child. It was packed with interesting detail and lots of dialogue, which was punctuated beautifully. It also featured a happy ending for Jim after his many ordeals in the book so far. Well done Maggie 5 dojos!

Thank you to everyone who took part in today’s odd sock day in support of anti-bullying week. It was a great way to demonstrate that we may all be different but we are all equal. See if you can guess who these odd socks belong to in class 5KB.

Mystery Reader in 5KB07-11-2017 | 15:55:44 | 4 Comments

A huge thank you to Oliver Rhodes’ mum for coming in to be our first ‘Mystery Reader’! She chose to read Oliver Twist to help us with our Victorian topic and it was lovely to be able to draw on some of our knowledge about the period to help us better understand the story. It was a terrific way to end our day. Thank you again from 5KB 🙂
