It was really hard to choose just three pupils this week as there were so many we could have chosen! Thanks again to everyone who has sent in work.
We have had the opportunity to speak to lots of you this week on the phone, it has been lovely catching up. If we haven't called you, we will be taking a week off next week to spend some quality time with our families but we will start our calls again the week after.
We hope you all have a lovely half term break, let's hope the sun keeps shining next week!
Stay safe, Mrs Goodman, Miss Briton, Mrs Harris and Miss O :-)

Hello Year 5! I have been really impressed again this week with all the work you have been sending in.

I have enjoyed seeing them all. I look forward to speaking to you all again soon.
Denny is our Pupil of the Week this week for his excellent range of home learning. In this picture, you can see that he had made a volcano as part of his Science learning. He mixed chemicals together to make the volcano erupt and thought about whether this was a reversible or irreversible change. He also learnt a poem off by heart and performed it for me through a video clip. Finally, he has been working very hard on his writing. Well done Denny, you've been working very hard while at home!
Hawthorn, another week away from each other, but I have enjoyed speaking to you all and seeing the things you have sent in to email@example.com.

What a strange half term it has been! I am certainly ready for half term next week so I can recharge the batteries, ready for the final half term starting the 1st. Look after yourselves and I'll hopefully see you all soon.
Pupils of the Week – Year 6
Miss Philpot, ‘My pupil of the week is Kieran for an excellent extended story about something that came out of his wardrobe during the night. Kieran has dedicated so much time to planning, typing, editing and illustrating this story which has fantastic ideas and shows a range of punctuation, detail and speech alongside some great vocabulary. Not only is Kieran focusing on the core subjects, he has produced some excellent pieces of work that linked to VE day and has still found time to play his cornet, bake and read daily to his nan. A superb effort Kieran, very well done. Keep up the fantastic work.’
Mrs Cullender, ‘When speaking to Mum on the phone, she always tells me how hard Beth has been working. Above is a perfect example! She has even been challenging herself further by making stop animation movies that go alongside her short stories. I think this is fantastic! You can see that Beth really thinks about the content of her work and how she can engage her audience. Keep up this brilliant work Beth - I am very proud of you.’
Miss Bain, ‘Well done to Mira! Thank you for all the work you have sent in and for the range of activities you have completed – maths, English, science, history and art. You have also completed lots of the challenges set on Twitter: maths, music and languages. Every piece of your work is carefully produced and you always find new and exciting ways to present your ideas. You have even created some challenges for me to complete – you are keeping me on my toes! Keep up this fantastic attitude to your learning.’
Well done to Kieran, Beth and Mira!
We wish all of year 6 and their families a very happy half term.
Stay safe, take care and find ways to laugh each day :-)
