This week, our year 5 blog has been written by Emily A, Lydia and Carmen.

This week has been super busy, right from the start…

On Monday

As usual, we had P.E with Mrs. Valentine first thing in the morning in our recently built Sports Hall.  After English ad Maths, it was finally time for our favourite part of a Monday – swimming!  

On Tuesday

We have Collective Worship first thing every Tuesday where we learnt about the Anti-bullying campaign. After that, we had an English lesson where we learnt how to punctuate parenthesis (this is extra information in a sentence). After break, it was time for Maths. We have started looking at column subtraction, which is a bit tricky when you have to borrow! After lunch, we conducted a scientific experiment looking at air-resistance and surface area. We made different sized spinning helicopters and looked to see which one hit the ground first.

On Wednesday

After Collective Worship, we had English where we started planning our final piece of writing, inspired by our book FArTHER. After playtime it was more column subtraction – it is getting a bit easier now!

On Thursday

We have forest school in the morning with Mr. Holland and at forest school, we made snowflakes out of V-shaped sticks that we collected in Grosvenor Park. When we got back from forest school, it was Lunchtime, when we got back from lunch we call it an upside down day because we have English and Maths in the afternoon. Eventually, it was time to go home.

On Friday

Today we wore pyjamas’ to school to raise money for Children in Need. Year 6 also put on a cake sale! As we were already wearing our pyjamas, we felt we deserved and afternoon nap. Unfortunately, Mrs Gill made us do even more work!
