Marvellous Mantras in year 5!

Year 5 would like to wish you a happy new year!

We’ve started off the year in a VERY positive mood in year 5!

We spent some time creating our own positive mantras to help us deal with challenging situations, whether they’re in the playground, in the classroom or elsewhere.

Every time we find something difficult or challenging we are going to think about our mantra – it’s one way we have found that we can tackle problems with positivity!

Mr Hodges’ favourite is ‘Persistence is key…’ – this is vital for us to remember when we find something difficult or challenging!

Space in Year 5

Our topic this half term has been all things Space-related.

During our science lessons we have investigated how the sun’s light affects us on Earth.  We used a torch to simulate the sun and discussed how the axis of the Earth impacts on how we experience seasons.

We are film directors!

We were very excited about our production of Bah Humbug in year 5 – the children wanted to create adverts to entice our audience!

We wrote scripts, filmed each other delivering our lines and edited our films using iMovie on the iPads. Who knows, we might become famous film directors one day!
