Year 5 have been working really hard on making their scarecrows, based on the Julia Donaldson book – The Smeds and The Smoos!
On 1st October 2019, two of our class got to go out on the Norfolk Broads with the Water, Mills and Marshes project. They spent an hour on Cantley Marshes collecting seeds from the endangered species – the Greater Water Parsnip.
We will be planting these seeds in class later in the year, with the view of repopulating Thorpe Marshes with these beautiful plants in the Spring.
On 27th September, year five were lucky enough to celebrate the European Day of Language with a special guest. Riitta came into our class and taught us some Finnish words and phrases (including how to say “stag beetle” thanks to an interesting question from one of the pupils!)
The children asked questions about what life was like growing up in Finland (although they couldn’t resist asking who the best Finnish footballer is – obviously Pukki) and used this to create artwork of what they think Finland looks like.
It was wonderful to see the children so engaged and fantastic to see so many budding linguists!
