It's hard to believe we're at the end of Week 3 already! Year 5 have been busy across the curriculum, writing diary entries from a character's PoV in English, developing their place value in maths, researching South American biomes in geography, and explaining different animal life cycles in science. Great work, everyone!
Forest School begins again for Year 5! We've had a tremendous morning today, orienteering in the open fields and copses behind the school site. In particular, we were focusing on the living things we found at each site, and any evidence of their reproductive cycles. The children's knowledge of the flora and fauna in the area has greatly expanded, and their map skills are now considerably sharper! A great experience all round.
Welcome back, everyone! Year 5 have crowned a tremendous week in the classroom with victory in the Circle of Fitness. Very well done, all! :-)
