Shooting stars we truly are,
Having fun, learning and going far.
Our potential we work to reach,
Outstanding is the goal for each.
Try our best in all we do,
Interesting topics for me and you!
Never giving up and being self smart,
Getting involved and taking part.
Super efforts receive an award,
Terrific team work is not ignored!
Always being nice and helpful and kind,
Reaching goals together leaves no one behind.

So in class 5, you will agree, each a star as bright as can be!

Let me introduce the “Walking Crew”…

 

In year 5 and 6 we start to think about what happens when we leave St Peter’s  and move on the secondary education.

The biggest change by far is adapting to organising yourself and getting to school on time, under your own steam.

So, bearing this mind, some children in Y5 have started up their own “ Walking Crew”.

They all meet up in the same place every morning before school and walk in together,  which is brilliant !  Its eases traffic at school drop off time, reduces CO2 emissions, enables children to get some exercise and prepares them for   the next step up to the big world of secondary school.

Go for it !

Keep walking…

ICT without  a computer !!??

This week in ICT we have been debating an important issue – caring for the environment.

To show how our debate could get messy and out of control we passed a ball of wool from person to person as they made the point they wanted to make.  Result; a spider’s web and a tangled up Mr Evans !

Here’s where the computing comes in…

Using one of the fabulous apps on PurpleMash, we can now record what we talked about in our debate  in a structured manner.

Keep debating …

National Coal Mining Museum

Last week, as part of topic Mining topic, Y5 visited the National Coal Mining Museum near Wakefield.

We had an action packed day which included:

An underground tour exploring the science and history of mining

Taking showers “Miners style”

Dressing up in mining clothing (through the ages )

Building our own carts to carry coal.

Oh and a good old mess around on the adventure playground.

Fantastic day out had by all.

Keeeeeeeep mining.
