First weeks!

Firstly, we would like to say welcome to all our new Year 5 children; we were so excited to have you back. It has been a fantastic start to the year and we have written some amazing poems based on the poems of Roald Dahl. We have also been looking at the illustrator Quentin Blake and we are really looking forward to creating our own drawings next week. We hope everyone has enjoyed being back at school!

While We Can't Hug

During our first week back at school, we did a project based on the book while we can't hug. Over the period of the week, we discussed the impacts of the lockdown and how social distancing has impacted all aspects of our lives; we wrote postcards to people we have missed and have been unable to hug and we drew the characters from the book and painted them using watercolours (these looked fantastic). Finally, we also answered questions about our experiences of lockdown sent by the poet Conrad Burdekin who will then turn our school's responses into a poem.
