PE & Outdoor Forest School
P.E. is on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This term on Wednesday mornings we are swimming! Please bring appropriate swimwear, a towel and a swimming hat. Children are allowed to bring goggles to wear if they wish but it is not essential.
Forest schools will take place every other week on Thursdays instead of our afternoon P.E. slot with Mr Heffernan.
Please ensure your child brings appropriate clothing for both activities.
Home Learning is now set at the start of every half term with the children choosing to complete activities each week. They will have the course of the half term to ensure all Home Learning is completed.
Spellings and times tables will go home weekly with a test every Friday.
Our ILP this term is Pharaohs. We will be exploring Ancient Egypt starting in the mysterious tomb of Tutankhamun!
Over the course of the term we will learn about mummification, Egyptian gods, the lives of the Pharaohs, the Geography of Ancient Egypt, the River Nile and much more!
To start our term off with a bang we had a guest in year 5 from Horrible Histories. Mark gave us a demonstration of mummifying a body, taking us through all the steps required along the way. He also showed us a range of Ancient Egyptian objects and taught us to play an Ancient Egyptian board game. We all got dressed up as Pharaohs or explorers for the day!
Year 5 and Year 3 attended a 'County Show' put on especially for Primary children at the Suffolk Show ground. Our class learnt all about sheep, carrots, baby animals, farm machinery and much more besides!
Year 5 had the opportunity to visit Denes High School for a Careers Fair. At the fair we were able to meet people working in a huge range of industries and talk to them about what their jobs were, what kind of things they did and how to get into the industry they worked in.
The careers represented at the fair ranged from Engineering and Science through the NHS all the way to the Armed Forces.
