STAR OF THE WEEK!
A big well done to this week's stars!
Stars of the Half Term!
Huge congratulations to our stars of the half term!
Books your child might enjoy
At parents' evenings this week, lots of parents asked for suggestions for more challenging books and classic fiction that they could share with their child or books that might get their boys more engaged with reading. Here are some links to websites that list possible next steps in books for your child. There are lots of similar websites out there but I thought these book suggestions all looked interesting. Happy Reading!
Later in the term we are going to be making our own volcanoes. To do this we are asking the children to bring in an empty 500ml bottle, a cereal box and as much newspaper as you can spare!
Many thanks in advance,
The Year 5 Team
Exploding Earth Wow Day!
We have had a great start to the Autumn Term with our 'Exploding Earth' Wow Day. We learnt what to in an earthquake and we built structures out of marshmallows and cocktail sticks and tested them on an 'earthquake' jelly base to see if they survived. Finally, we also created volcano artwork using tissue paper.
