Autumn 2

Week 2


Class 5 were very lucky this week to be able to have our parents and grandparents in class with us for a very fun parents afternoon.


We worked very hard and in lots of creative ways to create a replica of Darwin's boat the H.M.S Beagle. This was a fantastic way to finish our topic and it was enjoyed by all.

Week 1


Class 5 have made a fantastic start to their first week back. In literacy we have been looking at diary writing and how to write an effective diary.


Today we focused on the introduction. we looked at the use of emotive language and how the mood of the rest of your diary is set in the introduction. Have a look at the videos below and see if you can work out what mood our characters were in when they wrote their diaries.

Class 5 have had a fantastic trip this week to Crucial Crew. We learned all about keeping ourselves safe. We loved the different scenarios in a court room, how to respond in a fire and how to keep ourselves safe on roads and on the bus.


We loved especially learning the recovery position and potentially saving a life. The class did the school proud with their attitude and behaviour all day.
