This year has been extremely tough on everyone, particularly our children. In 5RS, we thought that our Crew deserved a reward for their resilience and hard work during these unprecedented times and so we decided to revisit Shrove Tuesday. It is safe to say that our children had a flipping good time!
Our Crew definitely made a splash in their English Channel virtual challenge! The children have walked an astonishing 21 miles during lockdown, which has supported the Eden Project in planting an additional 5 trees! Incredible job 5RS!
Both the children in school and at home thoroughly enjoyed getting dressed up as their favourite book characters. The staff in school also had lots of fun recording themselves reading their favourite stories for the children to guess.
Year 3 and 4 have fully embraced the Victorian era this week! We have evaluated the differences in how the rich and poor lived, focussing on clothing. Check out these poor children, their teachers look super strict!
Well done to all the children in years 5 and 6 for their tremendous hard work this term. They have been on a journey, exploring the development of the camera and how the world has changed as a result of iconic events, remarkable people and even several disasters!
Watch the video here to gain insight into their expedition and let them introduce you to the culmination of our journey: their rather impressive final product!
If it’s good enough for our children, its good enough for our staff too… Everything that you are doing in class, we are doing too!
We have also be revisiting our Core Values that we set together as a whole community 5 years ago. Here we are unpicking exactly what it looks like to embrace our values and identify our own HOWLs – Habits of Work and Learning. HOWLS help us demonstrate how we are working to be the best version of ourselves or as we like to say, “Being the BEST version of ME!”
