    A busy week!

    This week we have started our new literacy unit on persuasion so the children may start to use their knowledge to extend their bedtimes or get some treats! We have also started our new coding unit. This has involved us using Spheros, Ollies and Ozobots. The children have used their block coding skills to be able to navigate these devices. In mathematics we have been working on our fractions and we have been enjoying our hip hop music lessons!

    Just a reminder of parent’s morning Thursday 14th February

    The Deep

    Our trip to ‘The Deep’ was hugely successful. We had a great time having our own personal tour around and the children were extremely brave in the touching the creatures! We enjoyed being detectives in our workshop and had great fun designing T-shirts, making badges and creating sand postcards. Sleeping next to the tanks was such a great experience and we hope the children had as much fun as we did!Here are a few additional pictures of our trip. Thanks again to all the children in Year Five for making it such an enjoyable trip.
