Children in Need 2020

On Friday 13th November, Year 5 took part in a number of activities to celebrate Children in Need and to help to raise money for charity.

To start the day, Year 5 joined in with the final part of ‘The Joe Wicks 24 Hour PE Challenge for Children in Need’ which was rather tiring but lots of fun! You can see some photographs of this activity below.

In the afternoon, the children were able to take part in a variety of activities including Children in Need bingo, a balancing challenge, a tongue twister challenge, a drawing challenge, maths code breaker challenges and Pudsey colouring.

What a wonderful way to raise money for Children in Need – well done Year 5!

Golden Moments 12.11.2020

This week, Aidan and Spencer were both nominated for a Golden Moment in Year 5.

Here is Miss Guy’s nomination for Aidan:

‘I would like to nominate Aidan for a Golden Moment for his excellent effort in reading. Since returning to school after half term, Aidan has achieved 100% in his last three Accelerated Reader quizzes, including Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He showed great perseverance to read such a lengthy and challenging book and also demonstrated an excellent understanding of what he had read. This is a wonderful achievement Aidan. Well done and keep up this fantastic effort!’

Miss Cooper’s nomination for Spencer:

‘This week, I would like to nominate Spencer for a Golden Moment for his excellent work on the topic of Fractions. Spencer showed resilience when faced with trickier questions and was very helpful in supporting his partners as well.
In addition, he is always polite to other children and staff around school and in the playground.’

Well done to both boys – these are excellent achievements. Keep up the good work!

Singing Superstars!

The Year 5 teachers would like to say a huge well done to all of the children for their beautiful singing today! Over the past few weeks, the Year 5 children have been learning the song ‘We just want it to Snow!’ which will form part of a virtual concert organised by Forest Arts. All children and parents will be able to stream this concert on Thursday 17th December at 7pm where you will be able to enjoy our singing!

Year 5 Nature Hunt

This week, Year 5 went on a nature hunt in our science lesson as part of our work on living things and their habitats. We used a variety of different identification sheets from the Woodland Trust to identify leaves, fruits, seeds and other living things in our school grounds.

During our successful searches, we were able to identify a range of different types of trees including willow, birch, oak, holly and pine as well as berries, pine cones, spiders, a millipede, invertebrate eggs, birds nests, toadstools and other interesting finds.

Please take a look at some of the pictures from our nature hunt.

Year 5 Golden Moment 5.11.2020

This week, Rowan was chosen by Miss Guy to receive a Golden Moment nomination.

Rowan has been chosen for his fantastic attitude towards school. At all times, he is so polite and well behaved, which sets a wonderful example to others. Also, he will always offer to help to do any jobs around the classroom, which we appreciate very much. Well done Rowan – you should be extremely proud of yourself!
