Skip 4 Life - today we were visited by Amy from the Get Ahead Partnership who set us a skipping challenge. We have each been given our own skipping rope and must try to complete skipping challenges at school over the next few weeks. Once Amy has visited us again to see how we've been getting on, we will be able to take our skipping ropes home with us. Happy skipping!

Allotment Presentation 23/4/18

 

As part of our Allotment topic, Year 5 welcomed Derek Denby (Chairman of the Burton Upon Stather Allotment Society) in to their classroom for a very informative and interactive talk all about the history of allotments. Prior to his visit, Class 5 had discussed questions they wanted answers to focusing on who invented allotments and why and what can be grown in allotments.  Unfortunately, Mrs Smith didn't take any photographs of the afternoon but Class 5 thoroughly enjoyed Mr Denby's visit and it has inspired us to grow our own vegetables. Photographs to follow...

Year 5 Wonderful Wild Topic- Recycling

Year 5 are currently collecting large plastic bottles and egg cartons to repurpose. We hope to reuse the plastic bottles to create mini bug hotels during our open afternoon on the 6th March. The egg cartons will be used at the end of term for a range of art projects. All bottles and egg cartons will be gratefully received!
