Big Pedal 2021

Sustrans Big Pedal - Sustrans.org.ukThis year, as always, the school will be taking part in the Big Pedal, the Sustrans national competition to get everyone moving – cycling, scooting and walking.

Below you will find a video and information sheet.

This year will be a little bit different as we are asking children to bring their bike or scooter on alternate days.  Please see the timetable below for your child’s days.

Date Classes

Tues 20th April P1,P3 and P4
Wed 21st April P2,P5,P6,P7

Wed 28th April P1,P3 and P4
Thur 29th April P2,P5,P6,P7
Fri 30th April P1,P3 and P4

There are only a few simple rules –

all children must wear a helmet on a bike

bikes and scooters should be wheeled through the playground on the way in and out of school and on the ashy path.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join in the challenge.

Children will get the chance to cycle or scoot with their friends in the playground during the day.

We would ask that you check over bikes and scooters to make sure they are safe to use, especially if they haven’t been used for a while.

Please don’t worry if your child is unable to bring their bike or scooter on any of their days.  Walking counts too!

We are all looking forward to the Big Pedal. It should be lots of fun.

P5M – Spelling Homework

As of next week, spelling homework will be handed in in your jotter at the end of the week. We will no longer be setting up a spelling homework assignment on Teams.

If you have your homework jotter at home, please bring this to class next week so you can write your spelling words in your jotter. If you do not have it, we will give you some paper to complete your homework and sort out new jotters for next term.

Minecraft – Greek Architecture

Minecraft Clip Art

Today we were learning about Greek Architecture. We used what we had learned about Ancient Greek buildings to create our own in Minecraft. Here are some pictures of our work.

Well done everyone on working so hard. I know it was a bit stressful getting logged in and set up at the start so I really appreciated you all taking your time and being patient while we sorted it all out. Good job!

Adaptation Science Notes

Meerkat Clip Art

This week we will be completing the second part of the adaptation science task. For this part of the activity you will need your notes from last week (where you researched the adaptations of an animal of interest). If you have these at home please try to remember to bring them to class on Friday. If you did not get a chance to complete this task last week, don’t worry, we’ll have a little extra time to do some bonus research if needs be.

Glow User Details

Hello P5M! I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow! I have heard that some of you had difficulty logging in to Glow today for your topic task. As we will be using Glow and Teams at home and at school, you will need to be able to login in both places. While you were at home, it is possible you have set your device to remember your login details and have therefore forgotten them.
Could you please ask a grown-up to help you find where your login details are saved so you can learn them before coming to school? I have something exciting planned for the next couple of days but we can only do it if you can get into Glow!
See you tomorrow! Miss Burnett
