What a week!

We have been so happy being back together this week.

The children have been incredible settling back into school life – they have worked hard, been kind and done it all with a smile. You’re our little heroes!

We started our week the only way we know how – crew breakfast!

We read books.

We did PE – our crew won! Yay!!!

We worked hard.

We had the best time dancing and singing at our (not so) silent disco!

Busy first week back in Class Five

This week we have been busy learning about the different animal groups for our expedition, reading all about Wild and exploring shapes – we even found time for a bit of yoga!

Zoos – For or Against?

This week in English and Expedition we have been thinking about whether we are for or against zoos. We had some great discussions where we thought about both sides of the argument and generated our own conclusions. What do you think?

Non-Chronological Reports

This week in English and Expedition we have been thinking about writing Non-Chronological reports.

We started by reading and critiquing some models.

Next we used books, videos and the internet to create a research map all about our chosen animals.

We then used everything we had learned about non-chronological reports and our animals to write our very own report – what do you think?

Survival

In order to answer our guiding question – Why is it important to care about animals? – this week we have been thinking about what animals and humans need to survive.

Another brilliant week

I am extremely proud of all the children at home who are working incredibly hard every day with their learning, as are the children in class. They demonstrate their resilience, enthusiasm and positive attitude to everything they do.

I do receive lots of beautiful photographs showing your work and would like to say a huge thank you for your engagement and contribution. Have a little look at a few examples of what class five have been doing this week …
