Good Morning Year 5
I can’t believe it’s the last day of the Easter holidays! Where have the last two weeks gone? I hope you have all managed to relax and have some fun in the sun.
All of the year 5 teachers have been incredibly busy over the Easter holidays making sure the next topic is ready to go online. The new topic is all to do with the Caribbean! Maybe you could start to have a think over the weekend about the Caribbean and what it would be like to live there.
Did you see Captain Tom Moore complete his 100th lap of his garden to raise money for the NHS Charities Together? His target was to raise £1000 but after his challenge made the headline news, he managed to raise a staggering £12 million and counting! At 99 years old, he’s truly an inspiration to us all! Well done Captain Tom Moore. This just proves that age is just a number!
Miss Thomas and I had a little bake off in our kitchens yesterday. Miss Thomas made Banana Bread and a Victoria Sponge Cake – both looked amazing when I saw her photos (just a shame I couldn’t taste either of them!). My eldest son had been asking me to make a Ginger Bread Cake for a while. I finally managed to locate all the ingredients this week and so last night, he devoured a huge piece of Ginger Bread Cake with warm custard – he was in his element! Have you been able to bake at all? What have you managed to create in kitchen?
Enjoy your weekend year 5
