Dear parents and carers,
Welcome to the 2019/2020 academic year! My new year 5s have settled in really well, and we've already started to build a positive working relationship.
We had a fantastic time at Winchester Science Centre on Friday. We enjoyed a show in the planetarium, before learning about rockets and making our own, real fire-powered models. After lunch we explored both levels of the museum, learning about a range of different scientific topics. Here are some of the photos from the day:
Thank you to Miss Griffiths for organising the trip.
Please bear with us while we continue to rebuild our school website. If you need copies of any documentation or policies, please contact the school office.
This week we finished publishing our information pages about Greek Gods and will soon be putting them together into a class information text. We then started writing our own 'hero adventure' myth, re-telling the Labours of Heracles which we have enjoyed hearing in our Read Aloud sessions.
In Maths we have been calculating with decimals, including using leaves and stones to help us explore how to correctly lay out number with different numbers of digits. We need to ensure that the decimal points (the stones) are aligned to make sure our place value columns are correctly lined up.
In our PE lesson, we enjoyed a cricket session led by Sam from Chance to Shine Cricket. We especially enjoyed the Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes warm-up game. Sam also taught us how to bowl, making sure we kept a straight arm and aimed towards the stumps.
