I’ve been so impressed by everyone’s efforts with their handwriting since September. Today, four members of the class achieved ‘Master Scribe’ status and received their fountain pens. Congratulations and well done for your consistent effort!
There are several members of 5TOK who are very close to achieving their Master Scribes. Today we discussed some of the expectations. Can you comment below to remind us what they are?
Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!

Welcome back to everyone! Thank you all so much for your kind Christmas wishes and thoughtful gifts.
We’ve had a great start to the new term already, with positive attitudes and enthusiasm.
We’re all looking forward to an exciting term ahead!
After lots of hard work studying, designing and making carnival headdresses to complete our term learning about Brazil, Year 5 enjoying a Samba-style parade to show them off. There was some very impressive dancing from all the children!
What a festive feel school has today! Great Christmas jumpers everyone!
On Thursday afternoon, we had an exciting visit from Winchester Science Centre. In the school hall we discovered a giant, inflatable planetarium which we sat inside of and watched an amazing presentation all about space!
We learnt about the many stars within our solar system and their constellations, as well as discovering more interesting facts about the different planets. It was a fantastic afternoon and a great way to bring our space topic to an end!
Before Half Term, the children in Year 5 were set a challenge, to watch the moon over the course of a lunar month and create a presentation about their findings.
Miss Cheatle, Mrs Murphy and Mrs O’Keeffe were amazed at the quality of the presentations! We had Powerpoints, musical slide shows, booklets, posters and incredible photographs! We were very impressed by the depth of research and the observational skills of our budding astrologists!
Excellent efforts all round!
Following a lovely, uplifting afternoon, a couple of weeks ago, when we celebrated our classmates’ strengths, qualities and differences, Miss Cheatle worked with 5TOK to create a permanent reminder of this special activity. Every member of the class made a bookmark, using quotes from the comments they received. What a great idea and a perfect keepsake! Thank you Miss Cheatle!
