Tuesday – Rounders at The March Academy
Bastille Day Celebrations
Year 5 spent the day learning about the origins of Bastille day, tasting a variety of French food, building the Eiffel Tour from art straws and engaging in a game of boules!
What a fun filled, jam packed week Year 5 have had. On Wednesday a number of Year 5 joined together with children from Year 4 and 6 to represent the school at District Sports. The school came joint 1st with many fantastic individual achievements too. Check out this week’s newsletter for more information.
School Trip – Kent Life
On Thursday, the sun shone bright as Year 5 visited Kent Life in Maidstone.
As well as a variety of historic houses, gardens and animals, children were able to see Victorian style houses, like those we imagine Jim, the character in our current focused reading book, would have lived in before he became a street child. Children also took part in a Victorian rag rug style workshop making their own rag rugs. A great day – Thank you again to those parents who helped out.
On Tuesday we were joined by our French pen friends who had travelled from their school over to spend the day with us. We spent an amazing, sunny day with them. In the morning we took part in some ‘getting to know you’ style activities, making friendship bracelets, drawing self portrait and playing team games. The fun continued after break when we went over the the school field to play rounders, relay races and football. It was great to see so many friendships blossoming. Before lunch we were joined by members of the Twinning Association and presentations were made. After a lunch of sausages and chips the children walked over to the Marsh Academy and were extremely lucky to watch the highlights of their school performance – ‘We Will Rock you’.

Ancient Greek – building replicas of Ancient Greek Temples.
As part of our super start for this topic we explored and designed Ancient Greek buildings such as the Parthenon and Temple of Poseidon.
We focused on the structure and design of Greek temples and used junk modelling to replicate them.
After construction, we carefully selected the colours, painted and decorated our buildings.
This term we will be learning all about Ancient Greece.
Thank you to those of you who have brought in junk modelling materials for us to start creating replicas of Ancient Greek Temples.
