What a debate! 

On Monday we were lucky enough to be joined by two fantastic mentors from Debate Mate, and spent the whole day learning to debate. We had a fantastic day and all took away some valuable skills.

What was your favourite part of the day? What do you think is the most useful and interesting thing you learned?

All about Ancient Egypt

This week in 5RG we went on a fantastic trip to the British Museum, where we had to undertake a number of investigations in the Ancient Egypt exhibits.

Then on Thursday we mixed up with the other year five classes and did three project lessons, one with each teacher. We learned why and how the pyramids were made, what it takes to mummify a body and how to write in hieroglyphics.

Next week we’ll be starting to make our own pharo masks!

What has been the most interesting thing you learned this week about Ancient Egypt?

BAKE A BOOK THEMED CAKE

We are holding a “Book Themed Bake Off” on Tuesday 28th February.   Cakes should be inspired by your favourite book.  Miss Atkins and Mr Palmer will be judging the cakes on the day and all cakes will be sold in the Turney Road playground after school.  All money made from the sale will go towards much needed repairs to the Library Bus.  Please leave cake donations at the school office.  Thank you!

Workshop on Monday

This afternoon letters went home regarding an exciting workshop that will be happening on Monday.  This Monday we are lucky enough to have two Champion Debaters coming in to give us a workshop on debating and public speaking.  Not only will this be fun but it will also teach us the invaluable skills of organising our thoughts, listening to other people and how to respond to ideas as well as how to speak in public!

The workshop will be filmed so in order for you child to take part please return the form asap.
Thanks!

Safer Internet Day 2017

Today the whole school has been busy talking about online safety, as part of Safer Internet Day 2017.

5RG set up their own Twitter account so we could learn how to tweet responsibly and how to use hashtags to join in a debate.

You can follow us on @Rosendale5RG

Check out the work we’ve done on exploring online images!
