Well what a busy week it has been for Year 5, I have very much enjoyed catching up with lots of you and hearing about all the hard work that you have been doing.  This week I have seen some amazing fact files, letters, blog entries, maths and even a scale map of what can be seen from The Shard in London.  The biggest surprise though was to hear that Payton had the opportunity to speak to a friend of her Granddads all the way in the British Virgin Isles (you may need to use a map to investigate where this is), she thought very carefully about what questions she would like to ask and it sounds like it was extremely beneficial.

I can’t wait to see the work that you have been getting up to this week, please keep sending it in.

Happy Easter Holidays Kites Class!!

It is time for you to enjoy some well earned relaxation after what has been a strange and busy couple of weeks away from the classroom.  I have been so proud to see and hear about the work some of you have been doing and can’t wait to hear more about what you have been up to once we are back to normal.  I hope you all enjoy doing some of the cooking and crafts that ave been shared on the website (try not to eat the ingredients before you start the cooking).  Enjoy your Easter eggs and some time with your families.


Here are just a few of the things some of you have been up to.

Kingswood Day 2

Friday, November 15, 2019

A busy second day for Year 5 at Kingswood with plenty of activities even though the weather was not really on our side.  We started the day with an obstacle course and the zip wire followed by Nightline (blindfolded), which proved to be very muddy and wet!  After lunch we had archery, bush craft and Jacob’s Ladder.  The children persevered all day in some very hard conditions and came out the other end smiling.

What a fantastic  start to our residential visit to Kingswood.  We have been really busy Buggy Building, Zip Wiring and attempting the Obstacle Course this afternoon.  Everyone had a fantastic time and even managed to overcome some of their fears.

We have started our topic about plastic pollution and have started to learn about how it impacts sea life.  Today we have begun designing pieces of artwork to create a display to convince people to lessen their plastic usage.  In Math we have been learning to convert measurements and in English we have been learning about persuasive writing, ready to write some important letters.
