Despite being the penultimate week of the acedemic year, there is no slowing down in Year 5! The children have formed mini enterprise groups to design and make their own brand of sweets. After some fun taste-testing, analysing packaging and studying recipes, small groups have got down to business and come up with their own recipes and branding concepts.
In Literacy, we've continued the Highwayman and completed in depth studies of the characters. The children made some exceptional comments about Time the Ostler's jealousy of Bess and the Highwayman's love and how the writer demonstrates that love cannot be broken. Not bad for 10 years old!
In other news, some classes are rather light on the ground this week as we bid farewell to our FOBISSEA atheletes. Fingers crossed for some good performances. We were also treated to a fabulous performsnce by KS3. Their version of the broadway musical Annie was phenominal! We hope some of you got to see it too.
Stars of the week were:
Ailiya Rizwan, jae-Won and Min Seok.
