Christmas Cards

Today year 5 joined children up and down the country to create and post Christmas cards to Bradley Lowery, who is a five-year-old boy battling a rare cancer for the second time, whose wish is to receive more Christmas cards than Santa at a Gateshead sorting office.

We had a very successful week last week out on our bike for our Bikeability! All the children did fantastically well persevering  with some very tricky maneuvers out on the roads.

All the children had experience of going out on the road under the guidance of the skilled instructors while some went through skills such as the U turn and right turn.

A very well done to all the children!

Today we continued our Bikeability learning! We even got to practise these on the roads, learning how to maneuver safely on the roads.

Today was our first day of Bikeability! After collecting our bikes and meeting the instructors we ventured out onto the playground to perform our helmet and bike checks, making sure that our bikes are safe to use. Once we had performed our bike check we then got ourselves ready to practice peddling around the playground and even have a go at using hand signals.

A Beautiful Planet

This morning, Year 5 had the exciting opportunity to watch the documentary 'A Beautiful Planet' at the Odeon cinema. The documentary focuses on what life is like in space on board the ISS space station.

We then had the opportunity to listen to a presentation from Richard Crowther, Chief Engineer at the UK Space Agency, and ask him lots of questions!
