Trip to Chichester Harbour – 15th July, 2019

Year 5 Geography activities

Photos showing some of the activities we did as part of our Geography work on coastal erosion and deposition. Our thanks to Mrs Broadway, from Oaklands, who used her expert subject knowledge.

Friday 12th July, 2019

This week the children have spent time with their new teachers again. On Monday they spent the afternoon in their new year group and today they have had a full day experience.

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to have Mrs Broadway, Head of Geography at Oaklands, come and visit to demonstrate the processes of erosion and deposition. The children worked on a carousel of activities exploring these two key coastal processes.

This Monday the children will have the opportunity to apply all their geographical knowledge within the fieldwork they will be completing at Chichester Harbour. Please remember that the children do not have to wear school uniform but need comfortable clothing and footwear appropriate to walking along a coastline. If it continues to be as hot as it has, they will need a hat, sun cream and an extra water bottle.

Have a wonderful weekend,

The Year 5 Team

    Seeing how different types of exercise affects the heart rate.

Monday 8th July 2019

As Mr Cunningham wrote in his blog, it’s was a very busy week last week. Sorry that this is the first time we’ve managed to get to a computer for any length of time to catch up with you.

On Friday 28th June, we had another of our STEM days – photographs to follow.

On Monday, we had our belated sports day and the weather was perfect – sunny but with a breeze. The children had a fantastic time earning points for their houses and running competitively in races. Again, photographs to follow.

Tuesday saw the whole school celebrating the feast of Sts Peter and Paul. It was a lovely Mass from Father Jeremy and the children enjoyed an ice lolly, as a treat, after lunch.

On Friday, the children had their first transition morning with their new class teacher.

Cassowary class will become Seal class with Mr Pratley.

Kookaburra class will become Penguin class with Mr Land.

Many of us helped with the Year 4 camping on Friday night, hence the lack of blog on the same evening, however we did manage to set some word level and Sumdog homework before we decided to go for an evening without sleep!

Hope you enjoyed the good weather on Saturday,

The Year 5 Team
