Do something different day

 

We've decided that OPJS needs a break from screens!

You can choose how you want to spend the day or choose some ideas from the link below.

At school, we'll be baking, doing some forest school activities and making slime!

Please could you each send in a photo from today! We'll be making a display in school and a virtual gallery so we'll all be able to see what non-screen fun we've been having!

Spelling Homework Term 2

You can find below a copy of the children's weekly spellings. As part of their homework the children will receive their spellings on a Monday in plenty of time for a test the following Friday. Parental support may be required because some of the spellings may well be homophones or similar tricky words.

Maths Homework Term 2

From time to time some of the children will bring home additional maths homework to help them secure their knowledge and gain confidence in the subject. Although much of this homework can be completed independently, there is a section at the end of the paper allowing the parent/carer to review the child's understanding.

Term 1: "Honey, We Shrunk the Class!"

As well as conducting a study of famous artist, scientist and inventor, Leonardo de Vinci, it would seem Year 5 have also come into possession of some kind of experimental shrinking machine! Needless to say, we turned it on and all manner of chaos ensued. 

Mysterious Object 03


"Honey, We Shrunk The Class" The Movie!

Over the term, the children have been looking at how special effects are achieved during our computing sessions. In particular, chromakeying (green screening). The following movie was written and filmed by the children. The application of the special effects were achieved by the children. Due to the chaos, one group was unfortunately overlooked when compiling the movie - this will be rectified next term.


Year 5 Enter the Dragons' Den:

A nerve-racking, but exciting time was had by all. Needless to say the Dragons put up a good fight, but Year 5 clearly had the drive and business knowledge to gain the advantage. Watch and enjoy!

 

 


Music

We have been lucky enough to have a professional singing teacher coming in to work with the children on a weekly basis. We've all got a lot out of the experience - fun was had and, hopefully, our singing has also improved.

Welcome to Milne Class!

The first of many videos this year. Welcome to Milne Class - it's only been three weeks, but I have to say, they're a fantastic bunch and we're all having a (generally) brilliant time (obviously the strange invention raised the anxiety levels somewhat).
