On Thursday we had so much fun dancing and singing along to the music at the school disco. We all thank the PTFA for organizing it for us. It was also plastic free which made it even better than before.
We have been looking at blood and why our bodies need it. We made ‘blood’ smoothies by adding red blood cells (raspberries), white blood cells (marshmallows), platelets (sprinkles) and plasma (pineapple juice) and blending them all together. Cheers!
At the end of last term all the Year 5 children spent a fantastic two days and one night camping and having fun in the forest at Redwood, near Slimbridge. They learnt orienteering skills, built dens (and even a restaurant) in the forest, problem solved, meditated in the evening sun (beautiful), climbed trees and lots, lots more. We camped overnight in bell tents and our food came from a van that visited every day. The children were fantastic and really made the most of the experience.
We had lots of fun re-enacting scenes from Roald Dahl’s The Twits as part of our Wold Book Day celebrations.
Our Darwin’s Delights’ topic has started with a real bang! We had the most wonderful experience at Bristol Zoo. Our session on adaptation was particularly interesting – we learnt so much.
We invited parents to come into class to make, create and decorate – what a success it was!
And there were Christmas games galore…
As part of this term’s topic Stargazing, Aventurine Class visited the Space Centre in
Leicester. The children learnt the complexities in putting on a space suit and the endurance
required to visit space. Video footage of astronauts, including Tim Peake featured in the
day’s presentations. There were many interesting items that have been used in space that
are exhibited in the Centre.
Here are some of the children’s thoughts on the visit:
‘It was amazing, my favourite parts were the flight simulator and the laser pointer game’
‘the galleries were a place of wonder, and the simulator make it feel like I was actually
‘We learned loads about what life is like in zero gravity and that you have to wear an adult
nappy to do your duties in!’.

Every Monday the Marines come to Stroud Valley and give us exciting physical activities and help us to be active and healthy. In one session we worked as a team to build a copy of a Roman aqueduct which wasn’t ready until the last minute! We are also CPR experts now!
Stroud is Famous for its Mills

We went on an exciting tour of the old mills of Stroud (known as the string of pearls) and learnt things like how the water rich environment enabled Stroud to become one of the worlds most productive wool producers.
We are Stargazers

Our class has been looking up to the stars in the sky, exploring the planets like Jupiter and Neptune especially our solar system and the galaxies beyond. We have been completing exciting homework e.g. making a 3D display of our solar system. We are working hard to reach the stars and above. That’s right, our topic is STARGAZERS.
