Year 5 Blog
13 September 2018
I don't know which is more believable - a dog or year 5 eating your homework? But in the latter case it's true - Year 5 really did eat Amber, Charlotte and Alexander's homework!
It was meant to be warm!! Forest School in February wasn't supposed to be this cold! Kirsty came in wearing 15 layers - she could barely walk (it was quite funny!).
This week we were lucky to have some volunteers come and set up different activities based on our REACH value - encourage.
Evaporation, condensation, dissolving - we love a multi-syllabic word in Year 5 - we use them just to show how clever we are! In Explore, we have been learning about developed and developing countries, comparing North and South America, and in Science we learned about the lengths some people in developing countries go to to get clean water. We will be investigating the best way to filter dirty water to get clean water next week.
We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz.
We hear he is a whiz of a Wiz, if ever a Wiz there was.
If ever, oh ever, a Wiz there was, the Wizard of Oz is one because,
Because, because, because, because, because,
Because of the wonderful things that he does!
Happy New Year!! We've come back with a bang . . . literally! We had an exploding volcano erupting in our classrooms as we welcomed students from Warwick University and watched in awe and wonder as they did lots of different demonstrations involving dry ice!
On Wednesday, when half of the school went to St George's for our Christmas Carol Service (which was awesome and got everyone in the Christmas mood!), the other half experienced what school was like for children in World War One! Mr Patel hoped it would make them appreciate him more (because the teachers were so strict), but sadly (for him) it didn't!
A massive thank you to Mrs Unwin and Mrs Huggett who looked after some of us who didn't go to Beaumanor - we had a wicked time!
We had a wicked time at Beaumanor; we got wet, worked well in groups and teams, got even more wet, enjoyed the different activities and we got wet some more!
