This week we all enjoyed taking part in the vegetable workshops with Mrs Griffiths from the kitchen. We had fun learning about the different vegetables, how to prepare them and we hope you enjoyed eating them at home.
On Wednesday a few of us from Year 5 went to Hunters Down care home to share a book with the adults there. It is fair to say that we had a brisk walk there and everyone was really pleased that we had made the effort to visit and share some time
First of all a huge thank you for coming along to our celebration assembly on Thursday. The children really enjoyed performing for you and we were all very proud of them.
We are off to a great start with our new topic of rebuilding Britain and the children are learning a lot about what Britain was like after World War II. There have been many interesting discussions around evacuees, blackouts and the Blitz.
This week has been a very busy week in Year 5 and we have participated in many Christmas activities.
On Monday we saw the pantomime Robin Hood and Nevena said ‘We all enjoyed it, even if it was a little loud.’ I think that perhaps the dancing by myself and Miss Ruff had something to do with the noise level!
On Tuesday we had an assembly with the Reverend John who as Jniah and Sacha said. ‘Taught us about the meaning of Christmas as well as telling us some terrible Christmas cracker jokes.’ Jniah’s favourite was- Why does a giraffe have a long neck. The answer is because he has smelly feet!
We also saw the Nativity from the Early Years children which Ari says was ‘Quite cool as the children had to learn their lines very quickly.’
On Wednesday it was Year 2’s turn to entertain us with their production of Hey Ewe. Sophia found the performance ‘very entertaining with different songs.’
Then on Friday we wore our Christmas jumpers to school which Jack W said was ‘very comfy.’
We are looking forward to another busy week in our run up to the Christmas break.
We are very proud of the independent learners in Year 5 who have earnt their licence this term in Year 5.
They have been demonstrating the values of our poster and proved themselves to be true super stars!
Congratulations to Jniah, Liam L, Marshall, Tilly, Ari, Jasmine, Elllie, Samik, Thomas, Nathan, Marcel, Eloise, Megan and Emily!
