    On Thursda we had a school trip to Ballard School to do a drama workshop. It was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We all had lots of funacting out a classroom scene including; Violet Buerogade, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Charlie, Augustus Gloop and a teacher. About half way through we stopped for a delicious, mouth-watering snack. The Kit Kats were beautiful.  The moment the tip of the tongue touched the smooth choclate surface you were plunged head first into the magical land of unicorns and rainbows. Tamsin said "I thought it was really awesome". 

    In Maths we leart about co-ordinates and Roman Numerals which, personally we both think are fun indeed. So good Maths lessons for us.

    On Monday, Mr Wilcox bored the class with relative clauses. We worked on division problems in Maths. In PE we practised handball for the Handball Tournament. 

    The next day we did timetables (bus timetables). In literacy we drew a picture of a setting in GG Hall, then we had to write descriptive nouns around the outside. In the afternoon we did RE and had to draw wanted posters for the Messiah. 

    On Wednesday we carried on with timetables in Maths. In English we wrote a tourist guide script. I really enjoyed it!

    Thursday we did addition and subtraction, Tamsin and I both found it easy. In ERT (English and Art) we drew pictures of evil villains that were going to Ghastly Gorm Hall. This was mine and Tamsin's favourite lesson of the week. After lunch we finished off ERT then we did science. 

    Finally it reached Friday. In Maths we carried on from yesterday. In English we did spellings, a lot. We did PE in teh afternoon, then we went to the library. When we got back to the classroom Mr Wilcox read us a story.  Before we went home, we played a game. We rated this week 8/10

  • Delayed Homework

    Published 03/11/17, by Sam Wilcox

    Apologies, but homework will be given out on Monday. Mathletics has been assigned.  It looks different to how we did it in class. When you are working out your maths problems, use a pen and paper and a method that you feel comfortable with. 

    This Week

    Thursday was a great day. The class took what could have been boring lessons (division and noun phrases) and apporached it with such enthusiasm that the lesson was fun. 

    Up and Coming Event

    I would like to enter the whole class into a handball tournament.  We want to aim for 4 teams. The date for this will be 12/12/17, 15:30 - 17:30. Letters will be coming out later.  If you would like to help, then please let me know when you reply with the letters.

    Another great weel with a great class. We had a day in Lyndhurst where we visited the Verderer's Court and then exploring the discovery centre.  In the afternoon we headed to a park in Lyndhurst where we tried to find impacts of tourisms.

    On Friday, we looked at tourism in the New Forest and why it is such a popular place to visit. 

    Maths Olympics!

    Maths Olympics was a great day activity, where children tested their mathematical knowledge as well as their athletic abilities. The noise from the cheering was deafening. Longslade were eventual winners, just beating Overfield and Rhinefield.

    This needs to be a presentable piece of work, so you may need to do more than one draft.

    The due date is Wednesday the 4th October, so you have time to make this look great!

    Paper is available in the classroom if needed.

  • Year 5's Trip to Hurst Castle

    Published 22/09/17, by Sam Wilcox

    What an amazing trip!

    The Hurst Castle trip was a great day out. The children experienced genuine bird watching and took to the task with great enthusiasm. Later we trudged up Hurst Spit under very unpleasant weather conditions. Finally we explored Hurst Castle and recieved a history lesson about what it was like for children living there.

    The children battled high winds and pouring rain, but did that dampen their spirits, no!  I was very impressed with the attitude, maturity and grit of the children. As they walked along Hurst Spit, although the wind was trying to silence us, all you could hear were marching songs, sung by the children.

    I would like to say a big thank you to all the adults that helped transport and accompany us for the trip.
