Class 5

Friday 17th July

Well Class 5, today is the last day of term and almost time to start the Summer holiday! 

It certainly has been a very different few months but you have all worked incredibly hard and Miss Owen and I are very proud of all your achievements, so a huge well done to you all from us both. 

Also a very big thank you to your families who have supported you too, we really do appreciate it.


Today, there is a fun creative task for you to do.


Have a lovely summer break everyone, relax and enjoy yourselves.

Take care, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all back in school in September. smiley


Thursday 16th July

Good morning all.

We have only got two days left of this term so I thought today we could all sing along with this fun song 'Just Sing'. Get your family to join in with you and have some fun! 


Also if you have the resources at home, try this dinosaur challenge! 

Wednesday 15th July

Good morning Class 5, I hope you are all feeling well.

Today try this fossil experiment - it looks lots of fun to do!

But don't worry if you have not got all the ingredients, you could try making the fossils by using toy dinosaurs and pressing them in mud to make fossil shapes. 

Also, try this dinosaur challenge. It is not too difficult so maybe you could also create your own challenges for someone in your home to try and answer too.

How about thinking of 6 words that begin with 'd' but only have 4 letters in?

The talker has to describe what they are drawing and the listener has to draw exactly what they hear - when you have finished compare your pictures. Do they look the same? Did you listen carefully?
