Wow Slips. 


Wow slips are handed out in class to celebrate fantastic effort, excellent work or wonderful behaviour. 

A wow slip was handed out today - Thursday 19th November - to celebrate fantastic reading! Well done!

English - The Jabberwocky.

In our English lessons, we have been studying the poem, 'The Jabberwocky' by Lewis Carroll. Today, the children had great fun working in pairs to write their own poem in the style of The Jabberwocky. The children came up with some absolutely fantastic portmanteau words! Here are some photographs of them hard at work. You will see some of the children clapping the syllables - checking that they match with the number of the syllables Carroll used in his poem. 



This afternoon, the children in Year 5 went into the sensory garden with Mrs McDonagh and dug up some of the carrots that have been growing there! They've each got a carrot (some big, some small) to take home.

Learning Logs.


Today (Monday 16th November) Year 5 were given new Learning Log titles to complete over the course of this half term. I was very impressed by the Learning Logs completed before the October half term break and have posted photographs below of the children's fantastic work.

Remembrance Day 2020.


To mark Remembrance Day, the children in Year 5 created their own blacked out poem. We started by reading Flanders Field and then the children were tasked with selecting words and phrases which they thought were the most emotive or important. They then created their own poem by colouring the rest of the poem in black, leaving only their chosen words. They did a fantastic job, as you can see in the photos below. 


They also turned the plastic bottles they had brought into school into poppies, which then were joined together to create a wreath. 


The poems and the poppies are proudly displayed in the corridor leading to the playground.


Well done, Year 5!

Lest We Forget.

World Mental Health Day - Friday October 9th.


Today was World Mental Health Day. We spent the afternoon talking about how important it is to have a positive mindset. The children came up with some wonderfully positive statements and discussed what makes them happy. We then performed a yoga exercise, which left us all feeling extremely calm and relaxed.

Eastern European Art - images of Russia.

After learning about Russia's biomes, Year 5 enjoyed drawing a detailed picture of an area of Russia. I think their pictures are wonderful!

Locating Eastern European Countries in an Atlas - 10th September 2020

This afternoon we made a start on our Eastern Europe Geography topic. The children enjoyed using the atlases to locate countries in Eastern Europe and to find out their capital cities. 
Year 5 had two fantastic street dance lessons on Tuesday with Nichola from Leeds Rhinos! I was so impressed with the effort everybody put in and I was amazed by the dancing talent we have in the class! We had some very tired children by the end of the second lesson!

Self-portraits - Thursday 3rd September.

Year 5 have had a fantastic start to the new school year! They have produced some excellent self-portraits using photographs of themselves and watercolours.
