Harry Potter Day – Year 5 and 6

On Monday 11th December Year 5 and Year 6 are having a Harry Potter day, where they will take part in a variety of themed activities linked to the film/book series.  The children are invited to come dressed up in clothes linked to Harry Potter if they choose; please note there is no expectation for you to purchase a costume for this themed day.

When we visit Harry Potter Studios, it will be the ‘Hogwarts in the snow’ experience.  As part of our themed day, we would like to watch the film ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ as it has a number of winter snow scenes.  The film rating is 12A – if you would NOT consent to your child watching this film, please let your child’s crew leader know as soon as possible so alternative plans can be made.

Thank you

The Year 5 and Year 6 Staff Team

Crew Jackson – Making frames

Well done Crew Jackson! We have had a fantastic day – sawing, sanding, constructing and decorating our wooden frames. I can not wait to your gorgeous artwork, framed as a final product. You have all been super sensible and worked really hard. Thank you for a great day!

Crew Jackson – Family Learning

We began to get into the festive season this afternoon during a Christmas crafty afternoon of fun. It was fabulous to see adults and children working together to design their Christmas wood cookie decoration; as you can see on the photos, the outcomes were fantastic.

Thank you to all the family members that joined us – we always appreciate your support.

Y5/6 Celebration of Learning

On Monday 4th December at 5pm we would like to invite you to join us in the hall for our celebration of learning for our expedition – ‘How can we help our planet survive?’

You will have the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea whilst you look at your child’s expedition work, listen to your child read you their speech about saving endangered animals and view their final product.

We can not wait to share their amazing framed artwork with you. This will be available for you to take home on the night; all we ask is that you bring some change to throw in to our donation buckets. All money raised will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund to support endangered animals.

We look forward to seeing you at this event.

Crew Jackson – academic crew

This morning we reflected on our arithmetic learning so far this term. We played ‘dash’ in small teams – recording the different arithmetic skills we had focused on this term. The children then went on to identify what they are proud of and what they need to continue to work on. Well done guys – you have learnt so much this year already!
