On Friday 12th May, Year 5 got a very exciting delivery of 9 chicken eggs! Over the weekend, we left them inside an incubator and on Tuesday 16th May, they began to hatch. Unfortunately, only 6 of the eggs hatched but we were still over the moon to have 6 gorgeous little chicks to hold and watch them grow. Since then, the whole school has joined in and Year 5 have been teaching the rest of the school about the chicks and their life cycle. After a week, the chicks have already started to grow and show so much character! The whole of Washacre (including the staff) has had a wonderful time with the chicks.
From Romans to Greeks, Brazil to Bolton, Science and French, Samba dancing, Varjak Paw, Tom’s Sausage Lion, Little Manfred and much more. What have you enjoyed learning in Year 4 so far?
Last week, Year 5 were studying poems written by Roger Stevens. We were looking particularly at his Haiku (a 17 syllable Japanese poem). Whilst reading his poetry, we found that he had done some really funny poems that we wanted to read! He sent us a video to say hello and say that he was looking forward to reading our Haiku. He also let us interview him via email. Here is a sneak peek at some of his answers:
Our Geography topic this half term is Brazil. What do you know about this country? Do you know where it is in the world? How far is it from England? What language do they speak there?
Add your fascinating Brazil facts! We look forward to reading them.
