Meet Class 12's Eco and School Councillors
This week, as part of our whole school 'Black History Week' we have been learning all about the Windrush and experiences of passengers from the ship. Also, we have been enjoying experiencing some of the cultural traditions in the Caribbean. This has included designing and creating our own Caribbean inspired tortilla wraps, and recreating our own Notting Hill carnival, complete with music, masks and decorations. Please take a minute to look at some of our children in action below:

Year 5 WOW Day!
Today we introduced the children to their new topic 'space' through an exciting scene to explore. The children arrived at school to find an area of the field taped off by police as there was an 'area of interest' that needed investigating. They discovered around 40 items that we believe belonged to a spaceship or something from outer space! The children threw themselves into the enquiry and are now going to be writing a report for the local press to explain their findings. What an exciting topic this will be!
Our True Colours
Our project for the last three weeks has been learning all about colours and how they represent us. We have explored this through art, drama, camouflage research, IT, poetry and characters from fiction. In addition, we have been reading 'The Wild Robot' and delving into how the main character 'Roz' comes to terms with her inner-self and trying to fit in with those around her. Have a look at some of the wonderful work we have produced below:

SPRING TERM 2020
YEAR 5 SCIENCE PLANETARIUM VISIT FROM THE NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY
This week we were the incredibly fortunate hosts of the University of Nottingham's inflatable planetarium called the 'inflativerse'. Year 5 were the special children that got to experience crawling in the inflativerse and learning lots about the different constellations and they got to find out about a Greek myth that explained the big bear constellation. Back in class the children also became experts in sorting galaxy photos by colour, size and type. It was a fantastic experience and we really hope they will come back next year!
This week we have been learning all about 'The Merchant of Venice' as a school. In Year 5, we have been particulalry focussing on empathising with the characters, especially Shylock and Bassanio. We also produced some lovely art work.
Look who will be coming to visit in Spring 2 ...
Year 5 Outdoor Learning
This week has been assessment week, as a reward for the children's hard work, we did some outdoor learning. The children had a colour chart which they had to match up to outdoor items, it was a very refreshing (cold) event.
Chris White Workshop
Those children who took part in the RED January competition gained the reward of working with Chris White in a special workshop. It is safe to say the children loved it!
Year 5 have begun their 4 week GREAT project during the first week of term. They have been looking at healthy and positive relationships. We have made a wonderful start, here are a few photos from the first session:

STRANGE SIGHTINGS IN OBS!
Year five children have been heavily involved in investigating what could have caused unusual items to be scattered across our school trim trail! It has even been reported that they could be from another planet! The children have written some fantastic news reports sharing their story! We will share some on here soon!
