    Geography - Finding countries

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In Geography today, we had a go at using the index to find places and record their grid reference. We started with Berkeley and Gloucester before having a go at finding Greece and Athens. The class quickly learnt how the index can help you find locations a lot quicker.

    Art - Drawing

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In art, we are looking at different drawing techniques and skills. Today they were using natural form to start a drawing from imagination. They imagined what the cross section of a thistle would be like if they cut it open. Some of the ideas and colours looked fantastic.

    Who Let The Gods Out?

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    We have had a good analysis of the class book front cover and everyone has their own ideas about how this story will play out. After reading a few chapters, we now have a better understanding about the main characters and what their motives might be. I can't wait to get stuck into the main story this week!

    Welcome Back

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Welcome back to school and to year 5! We have enjoyed a great first couple of days back, and I am already very proud of how the class have adapted to the slight changes in school. Any worries about what school will be like seem to have disappeared after realising it isn't too different to how it was when we left. It has been a gentle ease into school routine and we are all looking forward to a more structured week starting Monday.
