We are loving being back!
Year 5 have had a great start to the year, we have started our whole school text 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers. The children have produced a beautiful collage of the Earth to start our class display for the topic, they have also started to write their own poems linking their interests/hobbies to space.
In our daily circle time, we have focused on emotions and feelings, this involved considering different behaviours that go with emotions. We also explored how to control breathing and relaxation techniques for mindfulness.
The children have considered their areas of strength (both physically and emotionally) and created a class paper chain.
We have also started to read our class text- 'Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo.
I am so glad to be teaching this class again, it has been lovely to see how they are growing and developing in confidence and ability. I am sure we will have a fantastic year together.
