We were all in the hall together this week ,whilst Year 6 took their SATs tests.
We worked in teams to design a new product. We had to think of a company name and logo, produce a labelled diagram and then produce a costing sheet, including details of training, materials, packaging and advertising.
Today was exciting because we had to present our business ideas in a persuasive way.
We had a smart fridge, a make up station, an indoor playground, a wi fi block, an i pad book, a vibrating chair/ flying car, mood changing contact lenses, travel pack , an animal back pack, a video game and a handbag charger.
The children asked some really thoughtful and interesting questions about the products. Luke, in particular, was very concerned with some of the health and safety implications!! Ethan was an extremely confident and persuasive salesman, with an answer for everything!
I think we definitely have some budding entrepreneurs! Well done to everyone for all your hard work.
We had a really interesting talk from the Highways Agency about how to keep safe on a construction site. We learnt about the different jobs that the Highways Agency involves and the different routes that can be taken to train for them. We liked the sound of apprenticeships where you can train on the job and get paid at the same time!
On Tuesday, some of our Year 5 children who are in the school choir, had a fantastic experience at Sheffield Arena, singing with 5000 other children.
We arrived just after lunch and rehearsed all afternoon with the conductor and band.
At 6.30 parents arrived and the stadium was full.
At 7pm the concert began. After the months of learning the songs and dances it was time to sing our hearts out! We all loved every minute from start to finish. The lighting, band and special guests were all amazing.
We hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas , the children have certainly come back refreshed, with energy and enthusiasm!
We would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for all the lovely gifts at the end of term. Thank you very much.
It's going to be a really busy term - please find the Spring newsletter below.
Please encourage the children to read every night, learn their spellings ( using the correct unit in their spring term spelling log) and complete and return homework by the deadline. Many thanks.
As our new science topic is Space, we are hoping to arrange a visit to the award winning National Space Centre this term . Details to follow.

We are really excited about a remembrance project we are going to be involved in over the next couple of months. This will also include a remembrance tree at school- make sure you look out for it!
The Daily Mile
Year 5 have begun the daily mile this year. We LOVE it. As soon as we arrive at 8.45am we are promptly registered. We then make our way to the field and walk, run or jog 4 laps of our amazing school field. We seem to be speeding up each day and are refreshed and ready to start our learning after getting our hearts pumping! Remember to check back here for updates and photographs on the daily mile's success.
