In English, we have been planning and recording  survival guides for Gilwell to share with the current Year 5 children. The children told their audience the truth about the trip and how to deal with all activities and situations that could be encountered. Great fun and engagement was had filming the guides.

Today, we joined in with the nation wide 10 minutes of exercise at 10am. We enjoyed following the muscle dance and learning the names of our muscles as we moved.

The Tour of Britain cycle race

posted 8 Sep 2017, 14:50 by Catherine Orrin

This afternoon, we braved the weather and headed out of school to witness the Tour of Britain cycle race 2017. It was a very exciting experience for all. The cyclists shot passed followed by their team entourages, moving through Kesgrave, towards Woodbridge, moving on to complete the stage in Aldeburgh. I think the children thoroughly enjoyed the spontaneous cheering, multitude of police motorbikes, swift cycling talent, flags and balloons and not forgetting the helicopter filming from above. It was well worth witnessing this world class event. What an experience!

Rocket Building

Today, we met with our new classes for next year. It was a pleasure to meet the 'soon to be' 6B and work together to create and fire some superbly aerodynamic water / air rockets. A wonderful team building morning with kind, polite and respectful children. I am definitely looking forward to September and further learning adventures we will have together.

There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom!

posted 23 May 2017, 00:46 by Lorna Cameron

This term, we have been reading the book There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom by Louis Sachar, which the children have really enjoyed. This week, we have been writing scripts in groups, which are based on the book, and then performing them. We have then translated the scripts into direct speech to practise correct speech punctuation.

As we've been learning about the Ancient Egyptians, we have designed and created cartouches in Art! Over the past few weeks, the children have practised writing in hieroglyphics, designed their own cartouches and then created them using clay.

As our current topic is Ancient Egypt, this week in English we are writing instructions for mummification! The children really enjoyed acting out the steps to mummification to help them understand the process.

Understanding Others

This week, we have been looking at how we can understand others better. We have learnt what empathy means and the children acted out scenes in groups where they showed empathy.

Over the past two weeks, we have been learning about the Ancient Egyptian pyramids. We created 3D pyramids and wrote facts about the pyramids on the outside of them.
