What an impressive afternoon it was in Year 5 today! For the past few weeks, pupils have been finding out about the services and business in their local community as well as the importance of international trade. We've studied foreign exchange and 'shopped' our way around the world - researching the different goods that countries import and export.
To conclude this unit of work, they have created their own 'businesses'. I have been amazed by the commitment and drive of the pupils and how they approached their projects with such professionalism.
Well done Year 5 - you are ALL fantastic budding entrepreneurs.
What a busy week it's been in Year 5. Everyone enjoyed learning some circus skills on Monday morning and this was followed by a visit from the Mariners Away on Monday afternoon. Their singing was fantastic and they helped us with a few tips for our Sea Shanty for the forthcoming Year 5/6 Production.
On Friday afternoon, we had a visit from Lisa Schneidau, a local storyteller who told us a Russian Fairytale, everyone was captivated.
Have a lovely weekend.
On Friday, Year 5 took part in an Ultimate Frisbee event, organised by OCRA. We were really impressed with how quickly the pupils improved their skills, with some amazingly accurate and far-flung frisbee throwing taking place.
We also enjoyed a visit from the Rock Pool team where we found out lots of information about types of crabs (hermit, velvet swimming, St Piran's) as well as many other rockpool animals.
