The decorated egg competition took place on the last day of term and we were impressed by the imagination and hard work that had gone into all of the entries – they were ‘eggscellent’!

This week we shared our homework with the class. There were some fabulous pieces, from timetables to building designs. Everyone gave and received positive comments about why we liked particular pieces of their homework. Here are a few:
"Fabulous book review on the Chronicles of Narnia and brilliant explanations. ” (Grace commenting on Ted's work)
"I never knew they did chariot racing to entertain themselves (the Romans). I learned lots from this.” (Evie commenting on Anna's work)
"Very interesting facts Hannah, I learned a lot about the Romans.”(Amelia commenting on Hannah's)
In 5M, the tigers have been researching Advent and creating their own Advent calendar. We created our own advent calendar section, making levers with a fixed and loose pivot, producing a moving decoration. We also explored the meaning of Advent and our hopes for the future.
British Values and SMSC:
Spiritual - we spent time reflecting on our own and others experiences at Christmas. Behind each door you will find the children's hopes for future Christmases, based on these reflections.
Cultural - we researched the history of the modern Advent calendar, discovering its European roots went back to the mid-19th Century.
Our current class book is Tall Tales by E.R.Reilly. We are enjoying the imaginative and colourful adventure of Tanya.
This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying week is ‘All Different, All Equal’. We also explored the different kinds of bullying, the emotional and physical symptoms of bullying and what to do if your or someone you know is being bullies. Below is an example of the work we did in class by Rebecca Manyonganise.
The children of 5M have made a fantastic effort for Children In Need this year, wearing spotty clothing and raising money at the same time! We also collected the old round pounds.
5M Tigers class have made a great start to year 5, settling well into our new routines.
We have held elections for various Pupil Voice groups, with many excellent speeches given.
Thank you to parents for their continued support with homework, including reading and times tables.
