HAPPY NEW YEAR

Learning about our local history at the Museum of Somerset. What a pleasure to take such well-behaved and interested children to this workshop.

"Reading can take you places you have never been before."

"I was reading a book ... 'the history of glue' ... I couldn't     put it down."

Unfortunately, James was poorly and couldn't be with us for Book Week. However, he planned his costume and made it. That's impressive James.

Can you spot his Cat Kid costume?

We start the term with Michael Morpurgo's thought provoking story 'Shadow'.

 

 

Hello from Mrs Payne and Mrs Wallis. We are delighted that you will be joining us in September. You will officially be a member of Year 5, Morpurgo Class. We like to have fun in Year 5. We also take our learning seriously as there are oodles of interesting things for us to discover and learn.

 

Parents please click on the READING STAR. There is information about  supporting  your child with reading and about how to use the READING DIARIES.

EXCITING NEWS!

We are pleased to announce that Sports Leaders from Bridgwater and Taunton College will be working with us on Thursday afternoons from 14th October. This means the children will need to wear PE kits to school on Mondays and Thursdays.

We imagined we were Isabel in Tom Percival's book ' The Invisible' and wrote some diary entries.

We have been learning about Space and the Solar System. Oil pastels were used to draw the planets in the photograph. The children also made a concertina book about stars and constellations.

On Wednesday 24th November, NASA launched a space craft that will deliberately crash into an asteroid to see if it will change the asteroid's course.

What a pleasure it has been to look at your half term home learning. We have all enjoyed sharing jokes. The witty wordplay made us all laugh!

Art inspired by our Ancient Greek history lessons.

DANCING FEET

These two talented young ladies  are in a dance team called Next Generation. Recently, they travelled to Berkeley in Gloucestershire and took part in a local competition. We are delighted to announce that they have qualified for the national competition. This will take place later this year. Watch this space! Well done girls!

IT'S CHRISTMAS PARTTIME

A Morpurgo Class IT Challenge

LEARN HOW TO TOUCH TYPE

Touch typing means being able to type at speed and with accuracy, without needing to look down at your hands on the keyboard. If you can touch type, you are a speedy typist. 

 

This is an incredibly useful skill to learn. If you practise for 20 minutes a day, you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

 

Go on! Get those fingers tapping.  Start by clicking here.
