National Tree Week, Advent Rehearsal and Home Learning



Once again it has been a very busy week in Year 5.

We started our week with a trip to the woods at Dame Alice Owen’s School, where we gathered evidence of wildlife including mini beasts, lichen, trees and birds. We also identified different trees, measured their girth and estimated their ages. Using our evidence we wrote persuasive letters, supporting the protection of woodland ecosystems.

The children have been working hard to learn their role in the Advent service – they must practise singing the Joseph song (see the hymn sheet on our classes page for the words.)
