Well summer seems to be here as the temperature is definitely on the rise. Fortunately it was not too hot for our Sports Day on Wednesday. It was great to see all of the children competing and having great fun in the different events. Well done to all for showing such determination and a 'never give up' attitude.

In maths this week we looked at the perimeter and area of compound shapes. We recalled how to work out each and then thought about how we could use our knowledge of the properties of rectangles to work out any missing values.

We learned about fronted adverbials and prepositions in literacy and looked at creating a story map for some sections of the Weslandia story that we have been reading.

Year 5 started to think about forces in science and considered examples of all of the different types of forces present around us in everyday life. We then set up an investigation to look at magnetic forces and the relative strengths of various magnets.

We are looking forward to art this coming week with Mr Boulton from Brine Leas art department. We are going to create pieces based on the work of George Birrell so look out for some examples of our pictures next week.

The Midnight Walk is one of St Luke's biggest annual fundraisers that keeps the finances topped up to deliver the amazing care they offer, not only to those towards end of life but also to their families. A donation however big or small will, I'm sure, be gratefully...
