In Maths, we've been studying place value. I overheard some super conversations today when we had to solve the place value of 5 different scripts.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

We've really enjoyed getting to know the children in Year 5 this week. In particular, I've been impressed with their team skills such as listening to each other, taking each other's ideas on board and working together to achieve their goal. This was evident in our SCARF lessons as well as in the Saints session, where the leader commented on how impressed he was with them. Well done Year 5!
Our Saints session will always be the last slot on a Thursday afternoon so it seems a lot easier for the children to go home in their PE kits and then bring them back into school the next day. If this isn't convenient for you, please let me know. We don't generally have PE on a Friday but it's helpful to have PE kits back in school in case they need to get changed for anything.
Have a lovely weekend.

It was so lovely to welcome pupils into Year 5 on Wednesday. They had a wonderful day and we're really excited about the year ahead.

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.
