Spring Term 2016


Maddy, Alicia and Katie came back triumphant from a cricket tournament at Caythorpe cricket club. Go Girls!



Year 5 were arranging their canvas today. It's looking good so far! They all worked together and encorporated all the creative images they had made.




Year 5 have been designing their R.E. canvas to show the story of Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat and the morals of the story. Some of the children have enjoyed reading the bible together in small groups.



What a great week year 5 have had with lots of learning taking place. We have been learning about fractions, decimals and subtraction in Maths. 

Today we watched the David Guetta- Titanium video and tried to establish what had happened to the young boy in the video, we infered that he may have been picked on by his peers which led us into the discussion of how to deal with anger. The children then began writing a piece of decription linked to the video, Steven wrote:

      If I was not scared, If I was not worried, if I didn't start an earthquake and made it hit the school then this would never have happened. A teacher was stood on the phone to the police, I sprinted down the corridor, I was very puzzled. Suddenly, a hole was in the floor, I had to jump over it and hanging tarantulas were in front of me.

Friday afternoon, Mr Clay set Year 5 a challenge. The challenge was to build a tower that was 1 metre tall that could hold a cup and a pint of water without collapsing. We dicussed scaffolding as a class and what was important when building structures. The children went off in teams to try and build their towers. Below are some of the finished projects:




 Not all of the groups towers   could hold the water, however two groups did. They are pictured here.
