Healthy Lifestyle Activity Challenge

Hi Year 5!

Phew! I have just about recovered from our Activity Challenge last Thursday! As you know we all had a brilliant time doing lots of activities to raise money for our Y5 charity, The Legacy Rainbow House. I haven’t seen the paper yet but I will keep my eyes peeled for our article! What was your favourite part of the challenge? What did you find difficult? Why is it important for us to help this brilliant charity?

Looking forward to reading your replies!

Dragon’s Den

Hello Year 5,

Last week we spent some time exploring the Dragon’s Den and your Special places. Can you tell us about your Special Place? We thought about how your Special Place had changed since you last visited and considered what we could smell, see, hear and touch whilst in our Special Place.

Please reply with a description of your Special Place, remember to include lots of exciting vocabulary, adjectives, similes and metaphors to produce a really interesting description. Remember to apply your own writing target and please remember to edit and check your writing before submitting it.

I’m looking forward to reading your descriptions!

Hello Y5C,

Tomorrow is our Science day where we will be learning all about the properties of materials and planning an exciting investigation. What do you already know about the differences between materials? Can you think of any words that you could use to describe materials or to sort them into different groups?

I am looking forward to reading your replies.

Miss Cartwright.
