A fantastic trip to Southwell Workhouse where we traveled back to the 1840s!
Digital copies of our Newsletter and topic map as we enter 'The Victorian era!'
Fantastic introduction to reflecting shapes in 5F this morning! We created polygons and predicted their reflected positions before 'painting and printing' to find out if we were correct!
Following on from today's NSPCC assembly we're ready and raring to go with our 'big workout with Buddy'. Everybody has been given a sponsor form to gather in support before our 'big work out' next week. Once we've completed the challenge, sponsor forms and money can be handed into the school office before February 12th. Good luck everybody!
5F listened brilliantly in today's assembly and learned all about the happenings of Parliament from our visitor. We watched an imaginary law get passed between the House of Commons and the House of Lords and murmured our agreement with "Aye" or disagreed with grumbles! Some fantastic questions were asked too - Well done!
Poetry Competition Information
We've been 'book tasting' this morning in readiness for challenging ourselves to try a more varied selection of authors and genres. We've found lots of 'delicious' books to put onto our 'next read' lists.
Well done 5F! Two weeks on the trot now that we've been the highest attending class in the school! We took our attendance mascot out for some fresh air to celebrate on this morning's run.
We tried to create different artist impressions on body parts using a range of materials before combining them into 'team Pudseys'! Thank you all for your donations and clothing efforts in support of Children in Need.
Remembrance Sunday (11th November) - We've been learning all about WW1 and have been creating work to mark the centenary. Please take time over the weekend to stop and think about why we mark this event and to show your thanks and respect in some way. The poppies that we created for the 'Songster' project in town will be part of the remembrance parade in town, please do look out for our school's contributions!
Spelling activity to do at home - this information sheet about WW1 includes lots of words that, by the end of year 5, everybody should be spelling accurately. Ask an adult to read the passages aloud to you and practise any mistakes you've made using look, cover, write, check. This is a great activity to help you in year 5 spelling sessions!
SWIMMING - Important reminder that next week (7th November) is our first 'swapped swimming session'. If you have been swimming with Mr Pattison up until now you will be remaining in school for PE: the children previously staying in school with Mrs Freer will now be going swimming. Please remember swimming kits and to remove all jewellery. Thank you.
A sneaky peak at some of the fabulous poppy art work that we have been creating this week!
World War 1 week - we have had a fantastic week learning all about the first world war and have produced some beautiful work as a result. Your homework this week is to teach somebody at home about the things we have discovered to pass on your new knowledge. We have work displayed around the school that shows the fantastic effort that 5F have put in, thank you all!
Passionate Paralympians! What a fantastic experience our Paralympics morning was on Tuesday! We experienced a range of new sports, heard about living with disabilities and even held Olympic gold medals...as well as making friends with Hattie the guide dog of course.
Harvest Festival reminder. A final reminder to all families that are kindly donating tinned and dried food to our Harvest assembly charities: please bring all donations with you into the classroom tomorrow morning ready for collection by REO. Thank-you!
THANK YOU YEAR 5!! You have been incredibly good helpers at this morning's Macmillan Coffee morning!
Apologies, our photocopier is leaving a few blank spaces on its printing! Homework for this week attached, just in case! Thank you.
An ancient Egyptian tomb has just been discovered in our playground! We're putting our newspaper report learning to work and will be writing up our findings soon!
We put our growth mindsets to great use earlier on this week with a visit from the Problem Solving Company! We applied great team-work and perseverance to overcome the challenges that had been set.
Thank-you to each and every person that has ensured the swimming permission slip has been returned to me at school. 25/25 pupils are excited and ready to swim tomorrow (Wednesday 12th September)! Please remember to send your child with a towel and swimming costume that is suitable for developing swimming skills in (no bikinis or board-style shorts please), only children that have written permission from parents will be allowed to wear goggles during these swimming lessons. Due to the strict time limit, there will not be time for children to shower after the lessons so please ensure they are suitably prepared to get changed as quickly as possible for our return to school in time for a well-earned lunch! Thank you again, we're looking forward to seeing new skills develop away from the classroom environment.
