Year 5 - Ash and Willow

Year 5 Class News

Autumn Term 1

In Wows and Wellbeing this term, Ash and Willow Class have been getting their green fingers out and helping with our school allotment.

The children have had the opportunity each week to go to the allotment on a Friday afternoon and pick the remaining fruit and vegetables that are growing, including apples and tomatoes.  Additionally, we have been making sure the soil is weeded and ready for planting more produce and plants in the upcoming terms. Thankfully, each week the weather has been great and they have used the time as a well-earnt brain break from their learning in school.

It has been fantastic to see how the children have been responsible and have considered how to work together as a team when using the equipment and completing jobs.

Summer Term 2

The Year 5 children have really enjoyed planning, working together and developing ideas for their community cohesion project this term. They have researched different charities and causes, and have decided to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), to help babies and children who are suffering from genetic conditions and need life saving treatment, or other essential medical help.

The classes have started working on posters, sponsorship and plans for their own fun run. They are really looking forward to the big day and some have even started training! We are proud of the children who displayed excellent group work and ideas for this Year 5 project.

They have been learning about profit and loss as well as the importance of marketing. Well done for all of your hard work. They have also been spending time rehearsing for their wonderful class assemblies.
