Year 5 have been invited to take part in a fire safety competition. This fantastic opportunity will allow them to compete with other schools to win the West Midlands prize for fire safety. It is all online based and consists of 6 sections. Each child will be given a username and password and the top 6 from the class maybe able to compete in a final.
Logins will be given out next week and a fireman will be coming into school to do the first session with the class in a few weeks.
How exciting! To find out more right now have a look – click here.
Year 5 really enjoyed the ThinkTank’s visit to school this afternoon to help them explore electricity. They learnt how static is actually electricity. Some children from the class got a chance to experience this for themselves.
The most shocking discovery was that electricity can jump! So when it says keep away from live wires – really do keep away. Electricity is lazy and will just go through you if it’s easier!
This week Year 5 have been planning and writing their own chapter to Alice in Wonderland. They are really showing improvements in their description and are getting very good at guiding the reader through Alice’s thoughts. Keep checking here for more amazing samples of their work!
