A busy week!

Wow! Year 5 had such a busy week last week and we are only just recovering now.


On Tuesday we had a visit from an author called Jack Trelawny. He writes the Kernowland books and we can't wait to read  them!


On Wednesday we all went to the Civic Hall in Blackshots for an internet safety workshop. It was called Walk On Line and we learned about how to keep ourselves safe when online and using apps like musicly, snapchat, facebook, youtube and lots more! The most important thing is to make sure you know the person you are talking to and to make sure that your account is on private. Also you should never meet up with someone you've only spoken to online. 


On Thursday, we all went to the Tower of London. We had to get up so early so that we could beat the traffic in London. We learned all about William the Conqueror, and how he built the White Tower in order to control London. We got to act out the Battle of Stamford Bridge and the Battle of Hastings. It was great!


What was your favourite part of our busy week?

Our first blog of 2017!

After a long and arduous hunt, Miss Doyle found the missing hole punch! The class rejoiced as Miss Doyle proclaimed the good news! We could continue to make our planets on Thursday! laugh



We have a new arrival in 5D!

His name is Jeffrey Gary Simba Doyle (also known as JJ). JJ is a stripey multi-coloured giraffe, who has a neck as long as Pinnochio's nose, and a pencil as small as an ant. He has four legs and usually is found basking in the light of the visualiser. Jeffrey is always on the lookout for the best groups in lessons and these children will get to move their names up the behaviour chart!
