Holes by Louis Sachar

Year 5’s book this term! 

Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes.

It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption.

Dangerous Dinosaurs

Happy New Year!

Our new topic for the first half of spring term is called ‘Dangerous Dinosaurs!’ We will be learning all about where dinosaurs came from, which parts of the world they roamed and what they ate.

Tyrannosaurus Drip

As well as all of this we will be looking at the brilliant Julia Donaldson book ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ which tells the story of a Duckbill dinosaur born into a family of T-Rex. We will use this book to practise our writing skills including using conjunctions (and, but, or, so), using question marks and exclamation marks and also describing the setting of the swamp.

In science we will be learning about habitats and in maths we will be looking at graphs, money and time.

 

If you would like to know anything else, please do not hesitate to come in and see us!

People who help us

John, our site manager came to talk to the children about how he helps us in school. John explained about how he keeps the school safe and tidy and asked the children to help him look after our school, by keeping it tidy and taking care of things.

On Monday 28th November Year 3/4 were all cast back into Ancient Greek times. We learnt all out the Ancient Greek Empire, played a game which is believed to be the first version of Chess, solved a maths problem from the famous Archimedes, fought in a Trojan war and retold the story of Theseus and the Minotaur in a Greek Theater.  We had lots of fun!CIMG7009 CIMG7017 CIMG7021 CIMG7062 CIMG7063 CIMG7068
