Class 12 have enjoyed reading 'The Dragon with the chocolate heart' by Stephanie Burgis this term. We loved the message behind Adventurine's transformation, which got us thinking about our own transformations. We then made our own clay dragon eyes and even turned the classroom into The Chocolate Heart cafe for the afternoon! We highly recommend this fast-paced, feisty adventure story.
Y5 have been learning about the journey of chocolate and we have looked into the work of The Fairtrade Foundation. At our parents learning exhibition we have raised £30 selling our products to help go towards tackling poverty, better working conditions and stopping child labour. Thank you to every one who donated and for coming to our exhibition. Well done Y5 for all your hard work!
We had fun writing our own rainforest tetractys poems as part of our conservation project.
Please find further Maya information and ideas for fun things to do at home on Dr.Davies's website.
In Y5 we have been looking at Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book.
We are writing at atmospheric story opener and have become explorers and taken our own trip to the Indian Jungle.
Miss Toulson, Miss Wood and Ms Howard would like to wish all of our new Y5s a warm welcome.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for both classes.
Homework will be given out and collected back in on Tuesdays.
Reading cards and books have been given to the children.
