It's not boring at all because we get the SPaG crown, the Maths medal and the listening ears. You get to play games like Articulate!, Invisible Man (a spelling game) and the times-table challenge. Mrs Lohoar, who is my teacher, taught us how to do relative clauses. She also taught us how to write news … Continue reading Thoughts on Year 5…

We were proud to come in 2nd and 3rd place out of all the groups from all the schools taking part.

We have all enjoyed playing the violin, and many … Continue reading Violin Concert

Our Year 5s … Continue reading Robotics Day!
