Good morning Year 5

Welcome back to Lent 2! 

I hope you all have had a restful half term. 

Tune in to Zoom at 9:00 for our whole school collective worship. Please use the same link you use for Friday celebration assemblies.

We will be using Class Dojo to share work. Have a look at your 'To Do's to see what work you need to submit today. You will also be receiving feedback through Class Dojo. 

Remember to send in your bottle moments. This can be sent via the Class Dojo messenger.

I am excited to see all your wonderful learning this term.

God bless and stay safe

The Highwayman Poem by Year 5

The children have worked extremely hard on their narrative poem. I am super impressed with all the action and vivid imagery in their writing. 

As part of the Victorian day reading lesson, they had to memorise and perform their lines to create a class poem. I am incredibly proud of each one of them. Enjoy watching :)
