Last week in Y5 (week ending 7th July)

Another sweltering week has seen the Y5 children enjoying an afternoon at the Anvil watching the Primary Prom and a morning trying out life in Y6. And what about the fantastic PTA Summer Barbecue? Such perfect weather for a lovely whole school community event; thank you to all the parents and children who turned up and contributed to the amazing total raised for school.

They have also been looking in greater detail at the Solar System in readiness for compiling their own quiz for parents when they visit our Science exhibition on Friday 21st July. There were some tricky questions so any parent wanting to take part in one of the quizzes will need to be revising their space knowledge in preparation!

This week’s highlights, apart from Monday’s visit to the Winchester Science Centre, include the summer disco on Wednesday and a visit from a librarian from Basingstoke Discovery Centre who will outline this year’s summer reading challenge. The children will also be making their planets using Modroc modelling material. Watch this space!

Until next week…
