Today, we explored inference about how a character feels and how they might act.

We completed some drama to generate ideas for what Mum and Lucy might have been saying to one another.

In year 5 we have been looking at 3D shapes. 

 In particular we looked at how 2D shapes could be joined together to make 3D  shapes (nets)

We have also taken this a stage further and built our own 3D shapes and then pulled them apart to see what the net looked like.  Some children could then draw the net in lots of different orientations. 

Clever year 5 !

Keep drawing

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…
