Continuing the school’s Christmas tradition of delivering gifts to the senior members of our village, Venus Class, with the help of Mercury Class, played Santa earlier this week. The children  thoroughly enjoyed handing over the gifts, along with letters and Christmas cards. Our older parishioners showed great appreciation with smiles, chats and even a few tears of joy! The children also sang to every person they delivered to; a great start to the season.

We love reading in Venus Class!. The children really enjoy their silent reading session during guided reading and are eager to share their reading experiences with their peers. Our Beowulf story is coming to a close; it is proving to be a gruesome end for the hero on his final quest. The children have really enjoyed the blood thirsty  language and the wonderful imagery created by the generous helping of kennings.

Venus Class have begun our Christmas preparations this week by wrapping the gifts for the senior people in our community. The gifts were bought with the proceeds from our Harvest produce sale and they will be distributed around the village before the Christmas break. They also wrote cards and are in the process of writing a letter to send with their cards, sharing  their learning and interests. We like to keep in touch with these special people.

To fulfil an aspect of the Outright campaign, Venus Class have been writing to Mr Nigel Adams MP to share our concerns of the plight of unaccompanied refugee children. We have been learning the features of persuasive writing and have used these to plan, draft and edit our letters. We have asked Mr Adams to share our concerns in the House of Commons and to speak on the behalf of these vulnerable children so they can be reunited with their parents.

Year 5 have had an exciting week in science learning all about space. They used common objects to represent the earth, moon and the sun so they could see how they would relate in size. I their learning they thought the earth would be more like the size of a football. After investigation they were surprised to learn it was more like a pea.

To gain further understanding about UNICEF’s OUTRIGHT campaign, the children in Venus class have been learning about the rights of unaccompanied child refugees and child migrants. They participated in in-depth discussion about how our government should       ensure that the rights of unaccompanied child refugees and child migrants are upheld as agreed in the Convention of the Rights of the Child, which the United Kingdom agreed  to support.

Venus Class continued to work on their footballing skills this week with the Doncaster Rovers team. They  improved their turning skills, trying several manoeuvres,  making obvious progress during the various drills. Several  members of the class were given the opportunity to demonstrate their improvements. We are building up our skills in  preparation for a long awaited match which will happen after half term. Keep practising over half term everyone!

What a fantastic afternoon Venus Class had on Wednesday. They learned that the Anglo-Saxons built their homes with wattle and daub, using horse and cattle dung for plaster! Then they used their own village designs to create several homes and a  village layout. When everything was put together the result was staggering: our very own Anglo-Saxon village! The children worked fantastically well in small teams and as a class, gathering their ideas into a whole scene. We had a most rewarding afternoon—well done Venus Class!

Science became a little messy this week as we investigated irreversible changes. We observed the effect of  adding acid to bicarbonate of soda and watched the gas released fill a glove to make Grendel’s hand! We also learned that the build up of the gas could create sufficient pressure to blow the lid off a small container. Venus Class now know that an irreversible change is the result of a chemical reaction and that new materials are formed.

On European Day of Languages, Venus Class visited France! We greeted each other in French  before moving onto our main focus: food! We completed a fruit word search in French then matched pictures of food with the names in French. These activities were  followed by a French buffet which was tres délicieux! We even drank French water. Finally we completed a French dance in the hall with Mrs Mackintosh which was great fun.
