Year 5 enjoyed forest school with our visitor Mrs Cooper. They used a pestle and mortar to crush wild garlic which they then mixed with butter and olive oil to make garlic butter- they then enjoyed it on some delicious bread!

This term, in Guided Reading, Year 5 have loved reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone so it was fantastic treat when they found out we were going to be having a Quidditch Day! All of the children were split into the house teams: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin and battled it out to win the cup! Slytherin managed to take the title!
It was great to see the children using teamwork, respect, determination and honesty throughout the day.

Today we were joined by Chris Harman (The Den Man) to work in groups to make our very own waterproof dens. We were given: cable ties, bamboo sticks, pipes, pegs and waterproof material and were encouraged to use teamwork, resilience, problem solving and listening skills to complete the challenge! Our dens were tried and tested with the torrential rain as the heavens opened and the hail poured down on us. However, this didn’t dampen our spirits as we had a fantastic afternoon!

Today we enjoyed acting out William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’. We spent the day rehearsing with Jason from Play in a Day before inviting the rest of the school to watch our performance.
