5KP made a great start to the year by working on team building and STEM skills to create the highest freestanding structure made entirely out of marshmallows, scotch tape and noodles! The results were pretty impressive, as you can see below!
This afternoon, 5GS discovered the secrets of Ancient Greece when exploring many artefacts found in our classroom. We held interesting discussions about what each object could have been used for and whom they may have belonged to.
This week, the children have been getting to know their new classrooms, new students and of course, their new teachers. We have spent this short week settling the children into the busy life of Year 5.
We have spent the week familiarising the children with their new timetables and daily routines. The children are very much looking forward to diving into their new topic; Ancient Greece. For an exciting launch into Greek Myths, we will be watching Percy Jackson on Monday as part of our Literacy sessions. This will then act as our stimuli for writing over the course of the half-term.
Our Character Strength this half term is Respect. We will be exploring this personal attribute in a variety of ways across the curriculum.
