13th July 2020
It was super lovely to see you on Tuesday & to see how well you all are.
Keep going with all your learning activities. What are you reading? I finished Orphans of the Tide and thoroughly recommend it to you. My other favourite book of lockdown has been 'The Nowhere Emporium' by Ross MacKenzie which is also brilliant. We hope you will come back to Year 6 with a few good book recommendations.
As well as this week's work, you will see a selection of summer activities that are here to support you over the summer if you want them. They're optional - to dip into & cherry pick from to suit your needs. Scroll past them for the learning for this week.
We love hearing from you so write to us here - firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to respond to you.

Well done to the writer of these 2 super poems.
Mirror of Wishes
A mermaid looked in the mirror
And saw pearls and coral.
An exhausted mum looked in the mirror
And saw 10 sleeping babies.
A determined mage gazed into the looking glass
And saw a dimension of stars.
A cat stared in the glass
And saw the world of milk and catnip.
An alien looked in the mirror
And saw his UFO
But best of all, a girl was staring into the mirror
Waiting for a friend.
The Mirror of Despair
A mermaid looked into the mirror
And found her home destroyed.
The tired mum peered in the mirror
And saw the babies crying and screaming
The confused mage examined the mirror
And saw a swirl of confusion.
A cat scanned the glass
And saw a loud, horrid room with smell of mint.
The alien peered at the mirror
And saw an abandoned spaceship.
Worst of all, a girl looked into the mirror
And saw herself lonely and bullied.
In drama, we have been developing our skills of staying focussed and team work. We worked together to create freeze-frames based on our study of the Legend of The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
Year 5 visit to Water Mill Care Home
Year 5 pupils visited the care home to share poems they wrote and poems they chose with some of the residents. They all enjoyed talking with many interesting people, including one lady with an OBE, two ex-teachers and a motorbike racer!
