What We Have Been Doing



Welcome back. We hope you all had a good half term break.


Both classes have settled back into school well. We have started working on a fantastic poem called 'The Magic Box'. The children are working towards writing their own versions of the poem-we're really looking forward to reading these.


In our theme work, we have begun looking at the history of where we live, with a focus on Nottingham during World War Two. The children are really interested in this topic and it has been lovely to see them showing so much enthusiasm and interest in what we are learning about. 



Welcome to year 5! It has been lovely to see you all again after the summer break. The children have settled in fantastically-they've had lots of smiles and lots of fun and we've all enjoyed getting to know each other.


We have been very busy so far. We had a brilliant afternoon working as teams to design paper bridges, and we have enjoyed learning about forces. Look at the photos below of the levers and pulleys we made. Our new PE teacher Ms Lund started working with us on some Bollywood dances, which was great fun! Maths has got off to a good start, including Mr Baker's group. In English, we have started reading a funny story called Bill's New Frock by Anne Fine.


We are looking forward to seeing some of you after school on Tuesday for the curriculum meeting. Keep checking the website for updates on what we have been up to in class.
