New Eco-Squad reps
If you are interested in being our new class rep for Eco Squad, please prepare a short speech to present to the class By this Wednesday or Thursday. It must be no more than two minutes and you can either write some notes down to talk from or speak with none. Think about talking about why you should be chosen:
- Are you passionate about the environment? What in particular?
- Do you have any good ideas you want to share that you’d like us to do in school?
- How are you responsible or organised?
The class will then have a democratic vote by secret ballot to chose our two new reps.

Do you know your statutory spellings? Here are 2 lists of all the spellings. You need to be including these in your writing by the end of Year 6. Tick off all the ones you know and focus on a few spellings each week at home to support your work in school.

Art on the Eco Bus/King Fisher Island Feb 2020
First we went on the Gypsy Moth Nature Trail, so we could collect and photograph ideas for our art sketches. We then either got onto the bus or went over to King Fisher Island and carefully sketched our favourite images using a range of special sketching pencils.
Enjoying time on our Eco Bus and King Fisher Island!
To raise online safety awareness on Internet Safety Day, Year 5 all took part in playing Google's Online Safety Game called Interland. All the children completed every level meaning Year 5 can now claim to be Internet Strong, Internet Alert, Internet Smart and Internet Kind. We even have certificates to prove it. Interland is a fun and interactive way to help raise awareness on Online Safety.

Thankyou to all the parents who joined us for our PE Live Lesson. We had a really good time completing circuits of different exercises, continuing our unit of Health Related Fitness.
Wishing all Year 5 and their families a Merry Christmas and a restful break. What a super term. Well done everyone!
In English, as part of our unit on non-chronological reports, we have been investigating a text on Manchester Ridge- Back dragons. Today we acted in role and asked and answered questions as experts on a TV show.
Scratch Art - as part of our Ancient Greek topic, we have been studying Greek pottery in art. We then created our own designs, inspired by our sketches, using a scratch art technique.
