It is lovely to have the children back in school after the summer holidays. They have settled into their new classes and are already working very hard. Dates will follow throughout the year. Our termly overview letter will provide you with updates on key dates for your diary and our topics for that term. We are more than happy to speak to you before or after school if you have any questions. We can be contacted through the class dojo system if you have any problems that you would like to discuss with us.
Year 5 team.
As part of our work towards getting the Silver Award for Food for Life, all year groups have been growing their own food. In Year 5, we are growing, lettuce, French beans, broad beans, carrots, beetroot, kale and radishes. We will plant them in our kitchen garden when they are large enough.
British Science Week
In British Science Week we were challenged to work in groups to make a tower taller than the tallest person in the group. It also had to be waterproof and wind proof. We only had card, string, tape, plastic sheeting and bamboo sticks. We really enjoyed the challenge. Mrs Hendrix used her hairdryer to replicate the wind, and Mrs Hough tipped watering cans of water over the structures we built. It was fun
Enrichment - Cooking
In one of our enrichment units, we learned how to cook an apple crumble. We then adapted the recipe and made savoury crumbles. We preferred the apple crumble!
