News of the Week.

This week in year 5 we've had a classroom visitor Good Choice Gordon, who we won for our fantastic manners at the dinner table.  We have also been working on our communication skills to work as a team to develop a PowerPoint. On Friday we enjoyed making our own bookmarks, with the special scratch art Mrs Caldicutt bought in for us, thank you Mrs Caldicutt!

We've had a really busy week in year 5 this week. In computing we have been learning all about the internet and how information travels form one device to another. In English we have completed our big write for our explorer story. As well as, performing our harvest poem (video coming soon) .

This week we have been learning all about the layers of the rainforest, we have explored what each layer is like and what sort of animals live there. 

We have also been working hard on our class harvest poem ready to perform in a few weeks. 

We have also been experimenting with chalk and oil pastels to create our art this week. 

W.C. 20.9.21

This week we have become weather forecasters. We have been looking at the weather and climate all over the world and presenting our very own weather forecasts! Drastic changes in the weather were predicted by our experts. 

W.C. 13.9.21

This week we have been out at forest school for English. We have enjoyed another experience day building our very own rafts like Fred, Lila, Con and Max from our story. We had to work as team to see whether we could get them all to float, luckily we were successful. We also had to imagine how the characters in the story would have felt at this point. 

W.C. 6.9.21

Our first week back has certainly been a busy one. We've started a new topic - Layers of Life. This inspired us to create some beautiful artwork.
