This morning's Zoom was full  of great news from Y5G from a story written by Eva (tune in tomorrow for Chapter 2!) to recipes, baking, a book review and Kenkens (Mrs Fielding's favourites!). Well done everyone, I am SO proud of how you have kept those high standards and determination going. I shall  be clapping for you and your parents tonight at 8pm. Keep sending in that work and remember if you would prefer not to share with everyone, we can do that too. Get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Leading by example - the Christmas Y5 Citizenship Award goes to......

posted 18 Dec 2020, 06:48 by Sian Granville

The whole Y5 team wracked their brains over the last couple of weeks and watched for behaviour which met the criteria for awarding the coveted Citizenship award. There were a few candidates but it went to Hana who has exemplified all we expect from anyone who comes to Dore Primary school - what a great role model! Well done Hana, she was surprised but her friends were not. She just does the right thing and doesn't expect or look for 'rewards' - that is a great way to end 2020!
 

What a lot of talent in Y5G!!

posted 18 Dec 2020, 06:39 by Sian Granville

It has been a very strange year however there are some things which are always true - that there is a HUGE amount of talent in our school! On Wednesday afternoon we had music, comedy and some films showing show jumping and trampolining. Thanks to Zoom we were also joined by a classmate from home who added a Christmassy jive to the afternoon as well! Thank you to everyone who put themselves forward and to parents who filmed so we could share the skills our class has. 
 
 
 
 

Walking In A Winter Wonderland (aka Blackamoor!)

posted 15 Dec 2020, 08:33 by Sian Granville

Y5s have had a wonderful day out on the moors today. We took our lunches so we could do a longer than normal walk and went approximately 9.1km. It was great to hear the conversations and the good humour as we went. Without exception, the children were cheerful (even when it got quite cold or quite steep!) and all the adults agreed it had been a pleasure to spend the day with them. Thanks to Mr France and Mr Fletcher for all the planning which went into making it possible as well as support from Santa and his barista Elf who kindly supplied the hot chocolate and marshmallows....
