Things to remember;
 
Our dance day is Tuesday.
 
Our PE day is Wednesday.
 
Please make sure P.E kits stay in school all week. 
 
Homework is given out on Monday and should be returned completed on a Friday. Each week there will be a Maths and an English task connected to the work we will be doing in class that week. 
 
Spellings can be practiced every night using the look, say, cover, write, check method. And times tables can be practiced with speed and accuracy sheets.
 
These skills are very important as we prepare for Year 6! 
 
Please also try to read every night! Children who read every night and bring their reading records in every day will be rewarded with certificates and book marks as they progress up our reading ladder. 
 
We appreciate all of your time and help and hope to make lots of progress and have lots of fun this term!
 
Mr Edwards and Mrs Clewes

Industry Week
Alarms in DT
We have been investigating alarms in DT. We looked at different types of switches and how to traip them.
Hinduism
We were lucky to have a visit from Preti Mistri who came in to tell us all about Hiduism. She told us about Hindu Gods, traditional dress and henna tatoos. It was good fun and we learnt alot.
Wildlife Sculptures
We have been studying the work of Constantin Brâncuși. He was a sculpture in the twentieth centry. He created a lot of pieces based on wildlife and birds. We used his work as inspiration for our own sculptures.
Manchester Science Museum
We had a great time at the Manchester Science Museum. We saw the capsule that Tim Peak returned to Earth in and learnt a lot about Space Travel.
P4C - The Present
You must consent to the use of advertising cookies to allow this YouTube video to show.
Many moral issues arose from watching the present including, inclusion, disability, friendship and solitude.
 
The dialogue we chose to discuss was, 'Does everyone judge people on their appearance in some way?'
Researching California
We have been studying California in Geography. Today we looked at the most significant events in the states history such as, 'The Gold Rush,' ' The Great Californian Fire and the operning of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Samba
We had our first Samba lesson where we learnt all about the rhythm that everyone has to follow. We started to use some of the instruments and learnt to follow a leader.
Cricket
This Summer we are going to be learning to play cricket. Today we looked at throwing and catching as well as how to hold the bat. We finished off with a quick game but look forward to improving our skills over the next few weeks.
Dance Competition
At the start of industry week we have enjoyed talks from Dr Creed and Mr Vose. 

 

Dr Creed told us all about different medical professions and what we need to do if we want to become qualified.

 

Mr Vose told us about his career in sales and trading animal feed.

 

They both gave us some good ideas about what we want to be when were older.

 

We enjoyed taking part in our second annual intra school dance competition at St John Bosco. As reigning champions we had a lot to live up to. We danced 'Smooth Criminal' by Michael Jackson. 

 

We didn't win but we did have great fun again. 

 

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped organise the day.
