It's been a busy week back after half term and we're very impressed with how hard the pupils in Year 5 have worked this week.
We started our new topic of 'Mountains' and have also been studying some of the poetry in Michael Morpurgo's book 'Where My Wellies Take Me'. Here are just a sample of the beautiful free-verse poems that have been written, inspired by the book.
Beacon Walk on Monday
Well, the forecast looks set to be a classic Dartmoor day on Monday (showers) but we're hoping to continue with our walk to the Beacon.
Pupils do not need to wear their school uniform on Monday, however could they please wear comfortable layers that will keep them warm. In addition could they please have with them:
- waterproof footwear (wellies or hiking boots)
- waterproof jacket and trousers (if you have them)
- hat and gloves
- a small rucksack for them to carry for the duration of the walk containing: a drink of water, a packed lunch with snacks (not sweets but chocolate or biscuits are fine) and an optional lightweight change of clothing (eg leggings and socks) in case they should get wet.
Have a lovely weekend.
