Year 5Mr Oliver and Mrs Donkin
Hello and welcome to class 5RO!
We are taught by Mr Oliver, Mrs Graham, Mrs Donkin and Mrs Storey. There are many different personalities and talents amongst us but we are united by our excitement for the year to come! Our topics this term are The Terrible Tudors and Properties and Changes of Materials.
We aim to create happy memories as we continue our school adventure together. Please join us as we keep you informed about our learning.
Year 4 have been working on our athletics skills and trying to beat our own best scores. Among us, we have some amazing long jumpers, balancers, throwers, aimers and hurdlers!
We have started circuit training in PE to get our blood pumping and our bodies working. Mrs Wardle was so impressed with us this week as we didn’t give up and kept going through all of the different stations….with some funny facial expressions!
This week in Year 4, we have been designing our own Greek pots using scratch art. We looked at the traditional Greek designs on their pottery and created our own based on these. We think they look fab!
Year 4 have been finding out about life as an Ancient Greek child. We used books and the internet to make notes and shared them with each other in preparation for our writing this week, where we will be writing a comparison about life as a child nowadays compared to living in Ancient Greece.
We have been developing our skills with the tennis coach on a Friday afternoon. Wimbledon here we come!
Some of our Year 3 and 4 children had lots of fun taking part in a tri-golf competition with lots of other local schools. We showed off our chipping and putting skills and demonstrated super accuracy. Mrs Wardle and Mrs Donkin had a fantastic time with us!
We had some ‘egg-cellent’ entries for our Easter egg competition this year. Here are our proud winners with their designs. Well done to everyone who joined in the fun!
Here are our winners from each class for the best dressed book character for World Book Day! They each got to choose a book of their choice from the book fair. Well done!
On Wednesday 1st March, KS2 took part in a fantastic ‘Reading Breakfast’ where we were joined by members of our family to share our love of reading. We read our books, answered challenge cards and enjoyed drinks and snacks too!
Class 4 were investigating the strength of magnets in Science.
We are going to use bold colours to create artwork in the style of the artist Paul Klee.
Once again, our Christmas Fair was a huge success. Thank you for your continued support. Have a lovely Christmas!
