🌎 Daily news - 5B 🎸 🌎This week, we have been practicing our oil pastel techniques. Yesterday, each child was assigned a planet and they had to decorate it using their techniques. The best one of each planet will be put up on display. As you can tell, it will be a tough choice. 🌎 🎸Additionally, there is a new maths display in school. This is to encourage children to use Numbots and TTRS to develop their times table skills. Once a child is at Rock Hero level, they have the privilege of signing the guitar for all to see! 🎸

5B are the attendance winners! πŸ† πŸ… We have finally won, so we got to roll the dice and our reward was to play on the Astroturf this afternoon. Well done team! πŸ˜ƒ
