This term we have been learning about the coast, along with lots of new Maths knowledge. I have been so impressed with your dedication and creativity shown this term and am excited to see what amazing work you produce next term – when we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks.
As we are not able to put on a fantastic finish, in the classroom to celebrate your hard work, I thought I would gather lots of your brilliant home learning virtually to share with your peers!

Look at this super home learning all about one of our year 5 pupils’ great grandfather. Remember this Friday 8th May marks 75 years since VE Day, look out for more information about this day on class dojo!
This is their work translated in English – My grand grandad Rear Admiral -Victor Stepanov went to the war straight from a Millitary school as a Leitenant. As a Marine he was fighting at sea. He started at Caspian sea when the war started and finished at Japanese sea at 1946. He wasn’t even 20! He got many different medals. One of the most important is a Order of the Red Star for Courage and Personal Courage. He came back alive and healthy! He never liked to talk about the war but 9 of May (VE day in Soviet Union) always was a big celebration for our family, started with a big parade, fireworks and then big family gathering after. I am very proud of my grand grandad! Thank you grandad for the Victory and a future without nazis.
This term in Funky Foods the children have been looking at packaging and advertising. They have explored the different types of packing available and the impact this has on the environment and the KS2 children have looked at the tricks the media uses when selling us products.
Alongside this they have looked into where our food comes from and how it is grown. With Year 5 visiting the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant for vegetables and herbs.
Year 1 created some delicious Rainbow Fruit Kebabs and a still lemonade
Last week during Funky Foods the Year 5 children visited the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant some vegetables and herbs. We planted Onions, Asparagus, Garlic, Lettuce, Chives, Parsley and Mint. These are now growing alongside the Rhubarb, Rosemary, Strawberries and Beans.
They had great fun exploring the garden, digging up worms and trying to identify the various things growing there.
We hope to return later in the year to see how things are growing and possibly use them in some of our Funky Foods cooking lessons.
