Year 5 have been INCREDIBLY busy this week! At the start of the week, we set off to Fulham Palace to carry out some investigative work on the river Thames and then in the middle of the week, we were lucky enough to take part in a virtual author visit with Jim Beckett, who shared his writing tips with the children.
Each and every day for the past 2 weeks – apart from this Monday of course – half of the year group have also been taking part in an intensive swimming course and they have absolutely loved it! They learned several news skills and one of them even included swimming in your pyjamas; make sure you ask your child about this so they can tell you more! Hazel and Group 1 from Sycamore have now finished their course, which means that from next Monday, Willow class at Group 2 from Sycamore will be starting their swimming adventure.
As well as all of the swimming and walking, the children have been busy learning the rules of cricket and had a wonderful time testing their knowledge by taking part in some mini matches. Well done all!
We hope the children have a well-earned rest over the weekend, to get ready for another fun-filled week at Cypress.
