It’s been a busy week in Year 5…

On Tuesday and Wednesday the children undertook fieldwork around the local area to answer some geographical questions we have been discussing in class. The children worked in six groups and on Tuesday they were investigating land use in different residential areas around our school. The children made their own maps and looked at different physical and human features that were in the area. On Wednesday the groups then went to different areas around Squires Gate retail park to look at land use around there and to conduct research through questionnaires. I was very impressed with how well the children worked and particularly impressed with the confident and polite manner at which they approached the general public. Well done Year 5! Now the children will analyse the data they collected in order to answer our geographical questions about the local area. Take a look at the photos…

After our fieldwork on Tuesday the children enjoyed a fencing workshop. The children were shown the basics of fencing and how to score and got to wear the gear. It was so much fun! Take a look…

On 2nd November, straight after school, parents are invited to a presentation in Year 5 with Hannah from Headstart. Hannah is the resilience coach who is delivering the Bounce Forward resilience training to Year 5. At this meeting she will be able to talk you through the programme and answer any questions you may have.

Don’t forget the children break up this Thursday and Parent’s day is Friday. Please make sure you make an appointment so I can update you on how your child is settling into Year 5.
