Class 5 Trinity
WELCOME TO TRINITY CLASS
Week beginning Monday September 20th.
It was a bit strange to be back in school after our busy residential - there were still some tired looking faces on Monday morning but we all agreed that we had the most amazing time! In literacy we have started to write some recounts of our trip which we are looking forward to sharing with you. In Maths this week we are revisiting addition with particular focus on improving our reasoning skills and making sure that we set our work out neatly to help us with our calculations. We are back into our Times Tables Rockstar and Arithmetic routines too so all of the children know what they should be working on at home.
Our R.E this half-term is called "What does it mean if Christians believe God is holy and loving?" On Tuesday afternoon we discussed what we thought God might look like and where we have got those ideas from. We also brainstormed the qualities that we think god should have. These included : powerful, calm, respectful, loving, generous, serious, wise.
We will be learning some German this term so Mrs Cox has spent a session teaching the class how to locate Germany on a map, looking at the German flag and learning about the country. Hopefully in the coming weeks we'll be able to share some of our new language skills with you!
St George's House Residential 13th -17th September
Years 5 and 6 all enjoyed an amazing week at St George's House, we were blessed with fabulous weather which made it all the more enjoyable! Our activities included: kayaking, surfing, body boarding, orienteering, archery and a long walk. It was a special time where we all faced new challenges and enjoyed getting to know each other better. Read on to find out what the children thought about it! The photos will be shared on the gallery pages.

We spent time studying the beautiful Tom Percival book, The Invisible - thinking about how we can help to make a difference and be part of a positive community!
In P.E. we started our OAA Orienteering unit - we developed our skills of communication and collaboration by creating obstacle courses for a ping pong ball - great fun!
