We have had some time to explore our time capsules in class. Everyone had put such amazing effort into their homework project, and it was lovely to see the range of different personal items everyone had included. Miss Caldwell especially loved seeing all the baby photos!
On Tuesday , all of Year 5 were invited to watch a performance of Hylands school production of The Acrobat & The Escapologist, based on the book and film Matilda. It was a fantastic production and the Year 5’s had so many positive comments about it!
Pine’s writer of the week was Jesse who wrote a fantastic story section. We had been focusing on using subordinating clauses with conjunctions and he worked particularly hard to include these in this piece.
Last half term Poplar enjoyed muddy adventures showing resilience, passion and respect in their creative activities outside.
We have started our new topic of ‘Time Traveller’ by making our very own time machines, ready to transport us into the past or future!
We have also set you a homework project to make your own time capsule, filled with important item to you. We cannot wait to see what sort of items you have included in yours! Check out the blog soon to see a few photos.
Pine’s writer of the week is Molly who worked very hard to write independently this week.
Here is part of her adventure story:
The villain entered the door and tiptoed into the hall. The villain dashed into the hall and she fell into the hole. The villain got captured with the net and mess. The villain was captured in the hole in the ground. Emily, the villain, tried to get out but she could not escape. Emily got tied with a rope as tight it could be so the villain could not get out.
In Year 5 we have been testing the force of air resistance by making parachutes. We then tested them outside to see which parachutes would safely land their eggstronaut. We had some great success, and some not so successful parachutes!
Pine’s writer of the week goes to Sonny for retelling the Hindu creation story in RE. He demonstrated a wide range of his Literacy skills, which made his work exciting to read!
Today Year 5 were lucky enough to be involved in a local community litter picking event. Armed with litter pickers and bin bags, we carefully cleaned the streets around Lawford Mead, and had great fun doing it. Well done Pine and Poplar!
