    Mental health and well-being awareness week!

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    As mental health and well-being awareness week runs from 18th - 24th May this year. Year 5 have been doing some tasks centred around this. They have created a random acts of kindness calendar for June, they have boosted their endorphins by doing some exercise and mindfulness yoga and selected a favourite book to read for pleasure. They have also made their own marble run game (who doesn't feel happy when they are playing a game?!) Finally, they have had some downtime for them to do any activity of their choosing!

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 5 received a letter this morning from Beebop the alien. He asked all about life on Earth and explained a little about his home planet. Year 5 have been busy replying to this extra-terrestrial being telling them all the facts they have been learning this week about planets and space.

    Fossil Hunters!

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Y5 have been learning all about fossils and the process of fossilisation. Today they have become fossil hunters! They were given images of fossils and had to figure out what it might have been and what we could learn from these fossils. All answers were revealed at the end! Have a go yourself!

    Year 5 have been channeling their inner David Attenborough today after watching a clip of two polar bear cubs emerge from their dens for the first time. They reported the events using Purple Mash's mash cams.
