We have enjoyed a dynamic and pacy term in Year 5. We have immersed ourselves in a coding topic, which has resulted in us all being able to write computer code to direct the actions of figures on screen.
We visited the New Rooms in Broadmead as part of our RE topic on John Wesley, the father of Methodism. It is a very special oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the city and we found it interesting to see where he lived and worked.
We are currently participating in a nationwide research project about meta-cognition, where we are learning a new skill to see how learning happens, and how we can optimise our learning opportunities through a rqnge of useful strategies. Year 5’s special skill is juggling, and we are having lots of fun tracking our progress.
To finish the term off, we visited Clifton College Sports Centre for a sunny morning of cross country running, slack-lining and bouldering; something fun for everyone.
