Year 5 @ 3pm

Have you ever wondered what happens in a school 20 minutes for the end of the day? Some people might assume that this is the time the children start winding down…

Not here! Having been around the school this afternoon, there was nothing but classes and children still engrossed in their learning.

Year 5 were finding out about Rube Goldberg, working on spelling and responding to personalised feedback from their teacher… strewth!!

Year 5 in action…

Pick me!!!

Walking around the school today, it has been lovely to hear the classes all getting engrossed in their learning and to see the children and teachers doing what they each do best.

Year 5 are hard at work in their English and maths lessons, making sure that the remote learning they did over the past 8 weeks gets built and moves them all forwards.

Loads of lovely learning opportunities in Blume building , with the whole of the year group in the same place now.

Year 5 have arrived!

Hello – there was a palpable sense of relief as the gates opened across the school site this morning. For many of the children, this was the first day in school for over 8 weeks.

The school sounds – and feels – like a very happy place and any signs of anxiety seem to have evaporated during the course of the day. Mr. Absolom has zipped around the school to capture a few photos of each year group hard at work!

Hi Year 5 and welcome to your new year group blog. Over the coming weeks we are going to be posting updates on the wonderful worlds of Coral, Marine and Estuary classes.

We are really looking forwards to being able to share some insights into what you are doing in class. This is especially important as the majority of you have just spent 8 weeks with your adults as class teacher – we’re sure they will want to check that you are keeping up the hardwork!!

The teachers are busily organising the classrooms and planning for your returns to school on Monday (8th March). Until then we have made a little gallery of a selection of the work completed by the home schoolers out there. Have a look and see what you think:

Please remember this just a small sample of all the wonderful work that has been sent in over the past 8(!) weeks. Try to view it as a celebration of the collective effort and not become disheartened if an individual (or individual piece of work) is not represented.
