We are developing our letter writing skills and using 'The Great Elephant Chase' as a stimulus. In the book, Cissie, who is one of the main characters, writes to Ketty to tell her all about what is happening. In our letter, we aim to explain what is happening to Khush the elephant and also explain how Tad and Cissie are coping with everything that happens to them.
WELCOME TO CLASS 5!
Mr Catchpole and Mrs Chambers would like to extend our welcome to all children and parents. We hope you enjoy our learning!
Our new class reading book is 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. We have just read the part where the letter arrives that changes everything.
SPRING TERM LEARNING AWAY
We will be going to Cromford Mills in Derbyshire in January. This will reinforce our topic learning about the Industrial Revolution. Cromford Mills were set up to create textiles by Sir Richard Arkwright, a very important figure of this time.
Year 5 worked with Tom, our resident scientist, to build and test rockets using nothing but the power of air (and sellotape!)
Well done to all whose rockets launched successfully
