Having a voice
Year 5 discussed being part of the school community and having a voice.
They thought about the things they might like to improve in the school in terms of its grounds and facilities.
They then devised appropriate questions that they could put to the school to gain an idea of what they thought.
This proved to be harder than they first thought. If the question was not specific enough the results would not help them to move forward with their ideas.
The class then decided on one idea to put forward to Mrs Butterworth and wrote her a letter…they will deliver it to her today. Let’s see what she says..
Spelling Bee finalists
A big well done to the following children for participating in the Spelling Bee final. They all did really well and should be very proud of themselves. We are very proud of them in Year 5.
Spelling Bee champions!
Well done to Sophie and Christopher for winning this year’s Spelling Bee competition against the rest of the school.
Rules and laws
In PSHE Year 5 have been discussing rules and laws and why these are important things to have. They started off discussing rules in school and why we have them. A lot of children agreed that we have rules in school to avoid chaos and to try and keep everyone calm and shaving in the right way.
The children then referred this to why we have laws and realised that it is for very similar reasons.
As well as this the children also discussed how people can be influenced by their peers to break certain rule and how this influence can sometimes turn into pressure.
Year 5 Kestrels have recently had an online safety lesson where they were discussing a digital pledge. The children spent time discussing what different communities they are a part of, before discussing how communities can be made responsible and respectful.
The children all had lots of ideas of how people should behave in a community, for example being kind to one another, listening to every ones opinions and reporting inappropriate behaviour online.
The class ended the lesson by signing around they’re very online digital pledge, agreeing to behave in the right way when online.
