As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we are running a writing competition. The children have to use one of the pictures as a stimulus for their short story.
It would be great to get the whole family involved, so the children will be bringing home a planning sheet so they can get ideas ready for writing their story in class next week.

This Thursday, it was our turn to show off everything that we have learnt about the Romans! After lots of practising and hard work learning our lines, we were ready to perform. Although some of us felt nervous, we spoke confidently about our learning and had lots of fun! Thank you to everyone for coming to watch us!
This week year 5 have been learning about the different parts of a plant, the process of pollination and the function of each part of a flowering plant.
The children had the opportunity to get hands on and dissect a lily, they spent time removing each part and examining it carefully before labelling a diagram.
