'Success for all, in all we do'

Perfect Poetry in Year 5

What a wonderful time we have been having in Year 5! We started the week by taking our inspiration from nature and the autumnal feel of our garden hub. Listening to clips from Joseph Coelho, we worked throughout the week to create a range of poems the evoke an emotional response about autumn.

Here is a slideshow of the poems completed by the children for you to enjoy.

Our Music lessons are moving along apace and our ukulele skills are coming along nicely. Both Coach Joe & Coach Levi are proud of our skills in football and basketball respectively.

As part of our Local Heroes topic we explored the inequality in the types of people recognised with blue plaques.  This led to a passionate discussion about slavery, the Black Lives Matter campaign and the removal of a statue in Bristol.
