What we’ve been doing…

Introducing Year 5's school councillors! 
These children represent our class and the views of all students. They meet regularly with staff members and are dedicated to helping our school flourish. 
Emily "If you have any ideas for school clubs, playtimes, dinner times or any special class activities, come and see us." 
Neevie-Lea "If you have an issue, come and find us and we will try to help you sort it out."
Aaron "If you feel upset or have no-one to play with, come and find us. We are always happy to help." 


Year 5 have been reading the book 'Cosmic' and have produced some fantastic work throughout the half term! They have written a setting description of space, a fact file, leaflets for a theme park they designed themselves and so much more. The very talented Miss. Agnew couldn't have represented this work in a more creative and interesting way! 


Our DT project for this half term was to make bunting inspired by our class continent - South America. The children were given a design brief and a success criterion to work towards. They learnt how to do a running stitch as well as how to applique and add decorations. Here are a few examples of their amazing work.
