CYCLE B 2018-2019
Take a look at what Class 4 have been learning this half-term.
Year 5 have been part of the Aspirations day alongside Class 3. This was run by Adam from One Goal. The main theme of the day was kindness and how this would help us look after God's world and ourselves. The topics ranged from pollution to mental, social and physical health. The children learnt that there are 17 Global Goals that are hoping to be completed by the year 2030. The children had a great time, dancing, reflecting, discussing and listening in assemblies.
SCIENCE - ELECTRICITY
The children have had fun learning how to make a simple circuit and them progressing onto more complex scientific challenges using bulbs, bulb holders, wires, crocodile clips, buzzers and motors.
We are very excited about becoming reading buddies to the children in Class 2. They come to us 2 x weekly and we hear them read. Year 5 have to be excellent reading role models!
