Cross Country Success!

A massive congratulations to everyone in Year 5 that took part in the Cross Country Competition at Dymchurch Primary School last week. All children had to run a distance of 1600m and showed great determination and perseverance. Unfortunately we just missed out on getting a medal. Well done again, you should all be proud of yourselves 🙂

Mathletics is now live!

Mathletics should now be up and running again.

Pupil logins have been stuck in your child’s homework diary on the back page.

This is a great resource to support your child at home.

You can access Mathletics on a computer, laptop and a tablet.

Each week we will be adding new tasks and we will be checking to see who our Mathletics champions of Year 5 are!

World Space Week

We celebrated World Space Week in Science this week.

In groups we chose a planet that we wanted to research and created a persuasive argument why our chosen planet should be chosen next for human exploration. We then presented our findings to the class and selected the most persuasive argument as the winner.

Thanks for your continued support.
