5LB Just The Best Crew A Brock Can Have!

So here we are at the end of term- yikes! It’s a fond farewell to you all. Thank you. Just thank you for a super time together. From singing on the swimming bus, to sawing, sculpting, and dropping a few eggs…you have been a most marvellous adventure. Mrs Hall is in for a real treat. Take care and enjoy your summer. See you in September when you will be 6LH!

Thursday Music!

Morning 5LB!

It’s our last visit to Rob’s Kitchen and this week he’s combining music and art! It’s a lesson all about drawing sound. You will listen to three pieces of music and draw in response to each one. It’s time to let your pen/pencil move to the music!

We hope you’ve been enjoying Carnival Week and listening and dancing to some carnival music!

Ps…here’s the PPT that should have been on yesterday’s blog…oops (sorry folks!)

Wednesday Catch Up and Story time!

This week, as it is the final week, there are two stories! The first story is read by Mrs Hetherington. I wonder if you can tell where she is?!

The second is read by our new Year 4 teacher, Mr Wolff! Enjoy!

Busy bees as ever, lots of super creative activities in year 5…

Amelia has been up-cycling a box whilst Immy has written some fab pieces and created a most beautiful tree display.

Have you created a rap or a poem this week? Feel free to email your photos and comments.

Have a splendid day folks!

Get your sunglasses out- it’s singing assembly time!

Sunglasses are optional for this weeks singing with Mr Chapman:) Here’s a little message from him that goes with this weeks song:

Worked on this with KS1 Choir. Finally managed to persuade Grace’s sister, Emily, to play drums with us (appropriate, since it was Ringo Starr’s 80th Birthday on the day we recorded it, and he played the drums on this song by The Beatles), but she didn’t want to be seen in the video! The delay at the start & end of this week’s video, is because Emily always starts/stops the recording of the assembly songs, but she had to get to/from the drum kit this time! Thought this would be a good song to finish with for the Summer; thanks for watching and hopefully see you soon.

Thank you to Mr Chapman, Grace and Emily for keeping us singing each week. All of the songs are available on the Cragside YouTube channel for you to enjoy over the holidays too.

This is a lovely joyful song from Beccy too for us to Carnival to. Have a Great Day!!!

Monday Assembly

This weeks assembly is from Miss Howells and all about facing your fears:

Today in class we have shared the lyrics from some of our favourite assembly songs like Don’t worry, by Bob Marley, as well as some of the tunes from the greatest showman. We are using our lyrics collection to create either a poem, rap or song. Why not try one yourself.

Monday 13th July…it’s time to join the carnival!

This week it’s Miss Frobisher’s turn to do the Community Challenge! Linked to our Carnival Week, and to celebrate ‘Cragside: Together and Apart’, we are going to revive The Chiming Tree in Paddy Freeman’s by the pond. The Friends of Paddy Freeman’s has agreed that we can decorate the tree.

Check out the document below as to how you get involved. If we work together, the tree can become magical again. 

This week I hope we’ll be able to play out more, paint stones for the chiming tree and perhaps try a bit of rap and beat box too!

Last week you sent me some fab emails- thank you! Medal biscuits by Amelia, an island cake by our very own Owen and some things we created in class too- well done Alfie!

If you are out and about this week our ‘Lockdown Take One Picture’ Artwork is now up at the People’s Theatre too. There are some very thoughtful drawings about what lockdown has meant to us:

During the morning I’ll be sharing the assembly. I’ll post that so you can watch it at home.

Have a cracking day folks!

Friday 10th July – Ready to celebrate our last week

What a super week with plenty of chance to get outdoors! Did you try the tree identification? We’ll have one more community challenge ready on Monday for everyone, so watch this space!

Getting ready for a spot of crazy golf- here comes the summer!

In our last week we are ready for a carnival time! Have a look at the ideas on this week’s theme and try out some upbeat, celebratory activities.

Less formal, with more chance to reflect and pick out some happy times from this year, our Carnival week literacy is all about songs, poems and being a rap artist!

We have two reading comprehensions this week, one on Monday and one on Wednesday. There are three levels on the downloads, level one star is just fine for us this week!

Imperial units? What a shock to the system! Enjoy!

And here are the answers…

Happy weekend folks!

Thursday in the kitchen with…

This week it’s all gone a bit Cuban….

Here’s one we know well with a slightly different kitchen!

Loving the outdoor activity zahra and the fine indoor partner too!

Tabby sent this beautiful homemade card. Inside Tabby wrote about her time in the allotment and having cycle rides- just my kind of things! I’m delighted by your allotment successes Tabby!

Meanwhile in class we have finished off our hoopla games and painted some warm island sunsets.

Have a super day folk!

Wednesday 8th July

How busy everyone has been! Together we have collected some art to show our experience of lock down. You can see some examples below. All of our work will be put up in the People’s Theatre so why not pop along and have a look?

Meanwhile Amelia has drawn herself a most impressive protractor and Sophie M has been out and about showcasing her amazing dance skills!

Oh Sophie! What a cake! Very stylist and I bet it was delicious too!

Our story today comes from the most marvellous Mrs Westwood.

Ooops… this was supposed to be on yesterday’s blog!

Have an excellent day everyone!
