Year 5 Goings On
Party in the Park
Children from Years 4 and 5 were part of Woking’s ‘Party in the Park’ in July. We all enjoyed the carnival atmosphere as we paraded through the park behind a samba band, dancing, blowing (and popping!) bubbles and laughing as we went. We then performed our flashmob dance along with other schools and dance groups, in front of the crowds gathered in front of the main stage. We were on the huge screens too! What an experience! It was a great event for both dancers and audience!
The Mary Rose
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
We visited the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, as part of our study of the rainforest. It was humid, hot, tropical and we were surprised at how enormous the leaves were, compared to us!
We saw bananas growing, the coffee plant, bamboo, cocoa and beautiful periwinkle flowers. We realised how much of our lives are linked to the rainforest – and how important is it to preserve and look after it.
During Maths and Sports Week, we had the opportunity to develop our archery skills – it was great fun!
