We are having a wonderful few weeks in Year 5 and enjoying the sunshine! Last Thursday we had our taster day to Brighton Hill and we were very pleased with the fantastic engagement and behaviour all children showed. They had the opportunity to take part in a range of practical lessons including creating a rainbow fizz in science; making a clay monster in art; playing hand-ball on the power league and creating a wooden box in DT. If the children made a clay model, this is currently at Brighton Hill being fired and will be arriving at our school over the next few weeks for them to bring home.
We ended last week with our reward afternoon. It was lovely to see the children enjoying playing on the Key Stage 2 equipment, drawing, creating their own dance routines and taking part in some cricket matches. These reward afternoons seem to be a big highlight for our year group! Our final one will be on the afternoon of the final day of term, Monday 23rd July.
In tennis, the children are making excellent progress with using their footwork and their understanding of appropriate selection shot. They are now progressing onto taking part in matches and understanding the scoring of these.
This week is RE week and we are deepening our understanding of our Christian values and how these link to our learning behaviours. This has been placed in the context of the Easter Story and the children are completing different activities to enable them to reflect on themselves, their ability to put others first and how we can disseminate this into our local community.
Following the Year 5 and 6 production letter, which outlined the children will need a costume of dark trousers and a green top, please can we ask their costumes are in school on Monday 9th July.
A reminder that on Monday 9th July we have the head teacher of Henry Beaufort Secondary School doing an assembly for our Year 5 pupils and you are welcome to join. This begins at 9am, in the main hall, and so please arrive promptly.
