Summer Term 2

14/06/19
Another busy week of the summer term has flown by.
Year 5 helped to build a Cornish hedge following our session last week with the Kerdroya project. They all enjoyed it and learnt an interesting fact about where some stones come from. Do ask them.
This afternoon we were visited by Helen Marks who did a workshop on money and keeping your finances safe. There were some really good questions from the children.
In English we have continued with poetry and had fun writing poems about things children say or that we wish parents would in the style of Michael Rosen.
We were making progress with our throwing and catching skills in rounders yesterday and are waiting for the weather to be kind to us so that we can use them in a full match.
 
Homework
Due Monday - English
Due Wednesday - Design your own superhero
Due Friday - Read on at least 5 separate days and get your record signed by an adult
7/6/19
Welcome back to what may be the last term of the academic year but is also looking to be the busiest.
We began a poetry unit in English, looking at the Cornish poet Charles Causley first followed by Michael Rosen.
In PE we have been playing tennis as well as focussing on our bowling and batting skills for rounders. 
Year 5 used their confidence this week completing assessments while year 6 have begun to put together their piece for prize giving.
We are really looking forward to the Fourlanesend festival at the end of term and began practicing a song from The Greatest Showman for our class contribution.
Yesterday we were very fortunate to have a workshop delivered by Joe from the Kerdroya project. This is a project linked with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is celebrating the Cornish hedge. We learnt what this is and were then able to go and compare theory to practice by looking at the one in our playground. 
Please read the newsletter each week to keep abreast of all of the activities going on. Next week year 5 need to remember to bring a set of old clothes and sensible shoes for walking through the woods.
