Today Year 5 have been learning about Europe. We used an atlas to locate different European countries and explored their geographical features. After that we created fact files about a European country of our choice. Our favourite part of the lesson was using our knowledge to test each other by playing the post it note game! We worked in pairs and each partner chose a country for the other. Everyone had to figure out which country they were by asking a range of closed questions. It was great fun!
The KS2 children who managed 100% attendance across all of autumn term had a fab time bowling today! It got very competitive, but thankfully the children reminded the staff that it’s not the winning but the taking part that matters!! A lovely morning had by all!
Across the week beginning 6th January, Year 5 have been creating our own musical masterpiece. We were tasked with making an easily accessible and weather proof giant glockenspiel and xylophone that everyone can use. What a fantastic job they have done using their problem solving skills and team work!
Alfie has had a great time with family and friends in Turkey this last week. He enjoyed Jet Skiing and parasailing, Jeep Safari, visiting Jesus Beach and even hiring his own private boat along with his cousin Corey. We have had so much fun 😁
Alex has had the most fabulous weekend in Dubai. His favourite part was swimming with a dolphin called Black. It was called Black because it had black freckles all over its tummy.
What a great day Year 5 had on Thursday 10th of October at Openzone. We did some recording using the green screen all about Alan Turing and Ada Lovelace. We spent our afternoon developing our coding skills. The bit that made Mr Usher smile the most though was definitely being complimented on how polite Year 5 were and their fantastic manners.
Art and Craft Club made Autumn Dreamcatchers. Don’t they look 👀 great!!
These three boys have done amazing in their karate tradings.
Oliver has graduated to his Purple belt in Phase 2 in the Kids Karate
Layton graduated to his Brown belt in Phase 2 in the Kids Karate ( not too far away from his black belt)
Rory graduated to Yellow with black stripe in the mini dragons
Great day for all three boys!
Year Five had another brilliant but wet day today on the second day of their Northern Saints Pilgrimage to Durham. Today the main focus was St Cuthbert. We were lucky enough to take part in a prayer service within the shrine of Cuthbert. It was a day of reflection and developing spiritually.
Just to say how proud we are of Charles for running the junior Great North Run yesterday. We caught up with Finley and Archie from year 5 on the way round and the three of them did really well!
