Well, Seesaw just keeps getting busier and busier with the fabulous work the year five pupils are completing at home (and school, for some)! This week our work focused around the book "Oliver's Vegetables", along with VE Day celebrations (analysing the song "We'll Meet Again") and continuing our local area History topic, with a few pinches of maths thrown in for extra flavour!
Today finished with the children submitting their recipes for "Lock Down Survival"! They made us laugh; they made us cry; they made us incredibly proud of our imaginative young people!
We did lots of reading work, evaluating the book "Oliver's Vegetables" and deepening our understanding and inference of "We'll Meet Again".
In history, the children researched the horrific jobs that even very small children had to do down the mines. Most of them decided they didn't really fancy any of the roles!
Maths has continued with more decimals. I think the children will have decimals coming out of their ears by the time they come back to school!
In honour of the 75th anniversary of VE Day, the children have been designing "Dig for Victory" gardens (and even planting them in some cases!)...
...baking carrot cookies using a WWII rationing recipe...
...and creating homemade decorations!
All this, and their still fitting in time to exercise, have fun, be creative and celebrate birthdays!
Phew! I think they've earned their three day weekend!
