In R.E this week, we talked about how we welcome people into our homes, school and church. We thought about the words, actions and symbols we use to make others feel included, and on Tuesday we had the chance to welcome someone into our classroom. Fr Shaun came to visit and the children took the opportunity to get to know him better by asking some questions. These ranged from ‘what is your favourite Gospel story?’ to ‘What super power would you like to have?’ The children were very interested to hear about his travels and the dangerous animals he encountered along the way.
After writing some factual reports on their favourite planet, Year 5 are getting creative and trying to sell it as a holiday destination. They have considered the climate and terrain and what activities would work best. They also identified persuasive techniques and used them to perform advertisements. We definitely have some gifted salespeople among us! Next week, they will formalise their ideas and create a brochure- I can’t wait to see the outcome.
Our Fitter Future Journey began this week. We have taken part in some workouts and the children seemed keen to get involved at home too. I hope you enjoy taking part in the family challenges.
Puzzles and Codes
In maths, we have used our place value knowledge to understand Roman numerals. This involved completing puzzles and cracking codes.
It has been great to see so many children making an extra effort to walk to school this week. The children are always keen to log their journey to school on our travel tracker. Most of Year 5 are well on their way to earning their next badge. Thank your parents for supporting your children by parking further away and walking.
