Year 5 have been hard at work on their new French topic - a la plage. They read and translated the story of T'choupi a la plage, about a popular penguin in France who spent the day with his family at the beach. They then recapped their knowledge of French colours and used them identify different items you might find at the beach. If they are unsure of a word they are able to use a bi-lingual dictionary to help them.
Sports Week/ PSHE
As well as participating in many sporting activities, Year 5 have also been learning how to eat a well-balanced diet to help them live a healthy lifestyle. We used Joe Wicks' recipes (the Bodycoach) as an example of what we should be eating and identified the main food groups in each recipe as well as suggesting ways to improve them or adapt them to our own tastes.
Year 5 had a great time during Sports Week playing lots of their favourite sports. In these pictures you can see them practising their cricket skills in preparation for the Kwik Cricket festival and their running, jumping and catching skills in preparation for Westerhope Olympics. They also played football and line ball during the week.

Class 12 have been hard at work planning and writing their own list poems, using onomatopoeia. After studying the Sound Collector by Roger McGough, they then got to work thinking about what a School Sound Collector would steal. Once they had written their own poem they performed them, using Michael Rosen as inspiration, to vary their pitch, pace and volume and add expression to their recital.
Class 12 have been measuring and drawing angles in Maths this week, as well as calculating missing angles.
