Dance club taster and Macmillan coffee morning

Last week, the class took part in a Dance club taster session put on by Limelight. The children put together a short performance in the little time they had with the instructors. It was a fantastic effort by all involved considering how little time the children had to put it all together. Below are a few pictures of the children’s dance. Also, the children took part in a morning’s baking on Thursday. They made some delightful scones ready for the Macmillan coffee morning. The children needed to measure, pour and mix all of the ingredients remembering the slight changes each group had (cheesy and fruit scones). Another excellent week with the conclusion of our poems based on the Highwayman.

 

Busy start to the year by Year 5

What a start we have had! Everyone has come back energetic (even Mr Evans and Mrs Bailey) and ready to learn.

The children have already completed what feels like an incredible amount of work already and below are a few snapshots of what we have done.

In Science, we have been looking at forces. We went out onto the playground to see if we could prove gravity, friction and driving forces. While in Maths, we have started with several practical lessons: making place value holders and a Roman Numeral jigsaw. Ask your child to convert this back into our number system – DCCXXVII.

The children have worked wonderfully well on the Highwayman. Showing an excellent understanding of similes and metaphors. They then used this knowledge to depict what image the similes and metaphors were trying to suggest to the reader. For Roald Dahl day, we made our own Mr Twit beards full of rubbish and also had a drink of ‘Fizz Lifting’, however many didn’t enjoy Mr Willy Wonka’s invention.

Superb start Year 5 – keep it up!
