In Religious Education, we are learning about Values, trying to answer our Big Question; What matters most?
We agreed that rules are important in helping to reinforce shared values both within our school and in the wider community.
We designed some rules of our own with the aim of creating a happier and fairer society.
Each week Year 5 will have a set of spelling words to learn in school and at home. The new words will be on the school blog so that parents and carers can support their children in this. They will also be on the website Spelling Shed which they can access from home. There will be a test each week to ensure that they are learning them. Thanks in advance for your support.

This morning, we have been making our own pizzas. We have been grating cheese and chopping the ingredients that we would like on our pizzas and we are very excited to be tasting them later today.
Year 5 have had a busy week. On Tuesday they interviewed Mr and Mrs Ealey on what it is like to be retired and the changes they have seen since childhood. The school nurse also visted to talk about changes to our bodies. We also started swimmimg. Many children have moved up groups so will need a new swimmimg cap. Feel free to buy a new cap of the correct colour or you can swap your old one for the new colour. Ask your child if they have moved up groups.

In RE, we are continuing to learning about Islam this term, looking at the difference it makes for Muslims to follow the Five Pillars. In groups, we designed pillar shaped posters to demonstrate our knowledge of Shahada (Faith), Salah (Prayer), Zakat (Charity), Sawm (Fasting) and Hajj (Pilgrimage).
Class 3 and 4 have had a great first day back getting stuck into their new book, Alice in Wonderland. Children used persuasive language to present their point of view in a debate about whether Alice should drink the potion left for her. Children also made delicious jam tarts, Cheshire cats and rewrote a blurb for the book. We look forward to the rest of this Potion themed term!
Reminder – please bring in a glass bottle or jar for Monday.
We were pleased to welcome Year 3 this morning. We have had a fun day today beginning our Scrumdiddlyumptious topic, learning all about food! Today we have made edible slime, baked chocolate chip and blueberry muffins, tasted fruit from around the World and carved potatoes to use for printing.
Year 5 have started their new unit of work called Time Travellers. The Year 5 team woke up on the first day of the new term to discover that they had been transported to the future and they had aged at least 20 years! Fortunately the children were unaffected and instead produced an Andy Warhol inspired snapshot of themselves at this moment in time.
