Year 5 Blog 2020-2021

Friday 18th June 2021 - Health Week
We had a great time on Friday during Health Week this week. We made smoothies from a variety of fresh ingredients, including blueberries, strawberries, bananas and orange juice. The children worked in groups to cut up and prepare the ingredients. They were delicious, as well as nutritious, and so easy and quick to prepare! 
We also discussed aspects of mental health, and the importance of these five key motifs to retain a healthy mind, as well as a healthy body:
- Be kind and helpful
- Stay active
- Reflect and take a pause
- Treat each day as an opportunity to learn something new
- Take time to have fun and laugh

Well done Year 5 for making such a good start to learning at home, we are so impressed with your efforts so far. It is great to see you using a range of techniques for presenting your learning; some of you are using laptops/tablets, whilst others are showing your work on paper. Do continue to present your learning in the way that suits you best. We are looking forward to seeing you in our live sessions from today.
Best wishes,
The Year 5 team.

To mark the beginning of Black History Month, we are reading 'Unspoken' by Henry Cole.
This book is helping us to understand how people escaped slavery through the Underground Railroad and the symbols for safe houses.
In English, we have begun to make predictions about some of the scenes in the book.
