Class 5 - Summer Update

After a very successful Spring term, the children have returned to school following the Easter holidays.Last term ended with our Easter production, the songs from which were all written by the children; that's both the lyrics AND the music! Not only that: the children also learned each others' songs and taught all of the songs to Year 5 so that they could perform together. It was a well-attended event with lots of positive feedback from those who were there.

The first week of the Summer term has come with fantastic attitudes to learning from Class 5. With the impending SATs tests, the children are showing resilience, determination and effort in order to achieve their potential and we are very proud of them.

In our other curriculum work this term, we are studying the topic of River Deep, Mountain High. We will look at the geographical features of rivers and mountains, as well as the human impact on these natural wonders. 

We also have many themed weeks coming up in the term, such as Maths Investigation Week, Enterprise Week and Sports Week. These are fantastic opportunities for the children to demonstrate their learning in a variety of exciting ways.

In addition to this, the children will again have the opportunity to work closely with Twiggs the Gardeners again, working on projects which benefit the community. We have really valued our work with Twiggs this year as it has enabled the children to take pride in where they live, and learn and consider the needs of others.

We had a blast living the lives of Anglo-Saxons for the day and learned so much from our experience!
