Mental Health Awareness Week

by Miss Kenwell and Miss Addison

As part of Mental Health Awareness week, Year 5 have been taking part in a number of activities to help support our mental health.  The children spent their morning outside in the sunshine reading and sharing their books with friends.  There was lots of great reading out loud involved, with some children choosing to act out parts of the story together!

We also enjoyed our singing lesson with Ed, we have been learning 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' and it's starting to sound fantastic - see if you can practise it at home too!


During the afternoon, we took several active breeaks where we practised some exercises or had a bit of a dance! 

We had some calm, reflective towards the end of the day where we investigated watercolours and practised different techniques to make interesting patterns and designs. Have a look at some of our artwork below.

Remarkable Recipes!

by Miss Kenwell

In our English lessons we have been investigating recipes and this week we have been writing our own, based on a WW2 recipe for Spam Hash.

Have a look at our wonderful work below - the children worked so hard to make their work look appealing and included lots of features such as modal and imperative verbs and subordinate clauses.

We want to say a massive WELL DONE to all of our year 6 pupils who worked so very hard during SATS week.  We are so proud of you all for trying your best.  We all celebrated on Friday with an ice cream in the sun - delicious! 😊
