We have had a very busy few weeks in Year 5, venturing out on many trips! This week, both Submarines and Galleons have been to visit Live Tales theatre where they took place in a writing workshop, becoming authors for the day. As always, the children were absolutely fantastic and were so engaged with the activities. The children’s stories were even turned into books where they have the opportunity to complete these at home.
We have also had lots of different sporting competitions happening recently. Last week, 30 children participated in an athletics tournament, competing in events such as the high jump and relays. It was noted how encouraging all of the children were, not only of their friends but of other schools competing too. They demonstrated the true Newsham spirit!
A quick reminder that homework projects are due in on 10th December. We already have some fabulous projects that have been brought in and we cannot wait to see the rest of them!
