Summer 2 – Week 4

Stars of the Week: Nifemi and Shia

This week, we continued reading the Tale of the Trojan War. We read about the death of Patroclus and how Achilles would have felt about losing his close friend. We took it in turns to hot seat as Achilles and interviewed him to find out how he felt. We will be writing these interviews into our English books in our next lesson.

Summer 2 – Week 3

Stars of the Week: All of Class 5

Class 5 have had a very special opportunity this week. They were invited to take part in a very special service that commemorated the Windrush on its 75th anniversary. Class 5 led all of the witness walkers down the cathedral carrying a wreath in the shape of an anchor. They were ambassadors for the school and behaved with such maturity throughout the whole event. Class 5 should be very proud of how they represented the school. (They even starred on BBC news!)


Summer 2 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Carter and Joni

This week, Class 5 have been learning how to draw shapes in maths. They have mastered the art of using a protractor accurately and are going onto construct quadrilaterals with different lengths and angles.

To celebrate the Cleaner Air day, Class 5 were fortunate to get the chance to play out on Redcross Way. The road had been closed off so that the children could all run along the road, play games and draw using chalk. It was the perfect way to enjoy the absence of cars on the road!

Summer 2 – Week 1

Stars of the Week: Thomas and Alpha

This week, Class 5 had an amazing opportunity to meet some people who’s lives were affected by the second world war. We met Jess and Ken. Ken was 89 years old and had lots of memories of what happened throughout the war. He was evacuated lots of times and ended up going to 10 different schools! Jess was born a couple of months before the end of the war and spoke about how she used to play on the bomb sites where the debris of buildings had still not been cleared up. It was a really interesting day and the IWM staff kept on commenting about how well behaved and interested the children were in this class.

Summer 1 – Week 6

Stars of the Week: Morraya and Isaac

This week, Class 5 have been working hard through on their assessments. They have tried their hardest making sure to read all questions carefully. Their mature attitude towards their tests have helped them get through. Well done Class 5.

In art, they have been making their own comic pages. They decided what they wanted their panels to look like and filled them with a pre written short story or a story idea of their own. They are excited to show these on the blog when they have finished.

Summer 1 – Week 5

Stars of the Week: Ben and Amaris

This week, Class 5 have planted their sunflower seeds for their science investigations. We are waiting for them to grow for a week before we start our experiments. Each group has decided what they are going to be testing. One group are changing the pot size, another is changing the amount of water given and a different group will be changing the type of light that the plants get. We are looking forward to find out their results.

Well done for your fantastic collective worship this week. You all did a fantastic job!

This week, Class 5 have continued their learning of vector graphics where they use different shapes to make different images. They have looked at different logos at home to see how images can be made from generating shapes together.
