Dear Year 6
You were brilliant on Wednesday. It rained and rained and rained but your enthusiasm and fearlessness shone through and it was a pleasure to be with you. It takes a lot of time and effort to organise a trip and sometimes teachers go home afterwards and wonder why they bothered. Well, all the hard work was worth it because that was a special day and all the adults who went feel the same way. We expect the same at PGL! Oh and thanks to Harrison, Cara and Katie for donating some of their packed lunch to their disorganised teacher who forgot his!
Our first week back in year 5 has been a busy one! We have continued on finding out about Michael's journey in Kensuke's Kingdom. We are using Prezi to map his journey around the world, learning lots about the different places he is visiting along the way. We have learnt a little more about WW2 Spitfires this week and have even started making our own models! They look fantastic. On Friday, we got split up with the rest of the school and made flags for every country to kick of our world cup celebrations. We created some fantastic flags and Miss Groome was impressed with how we looked after the younger children in the school.
It has been another busy week for Year 4. We started the week by using our measuring skills to make Tudor Love Knots. See how they turned out below. We then had a trip to the cinema to watch Viking Adventures and we now know lots of facts about the Vikings. On Friday morning we opened up our own shops in Year 4. We were then able to convert the weight of our produce from grams into kilograms. See how we got on in the photos below. On Friday afternoon we all took part in a whole school flag making activity. Some amazing flags were made.
