Current Work

We have been having a very exciting term in year 5; including our residential to Robin Wood, where the children took part in a range of outdoor activities including canoeing, rock climbing and raft building. We were also lucky enough to have a bread baking masterclass with Robert’s the bakers – our loaves were delicious! In class, we have been using drama techniques, such as hot seating and creating role on the wall’s to help us develop our writing and in maths we have been outside measuring the perimeter of our playground and we have been using math games to develop our fluency. As well as this, we have been enjoying our Spanish lessons with Jorge and we aim to continue to develop our Spanish speaking skills.
