Wow! What a week! Year 5 have been absolute stars this week. We kicked off our new topic – ‘Alchemy Island’ with a visit from an alchemist who performed a series of amazing tricks! The wizard then set the children off on a quest around school to retrieve precious gems by following riddles to uncover their top-secret locations. The children have looked at a map of Alchemy Island and have mastered 6-point grid referencing to pin point different landmarks. The children then created their own beautiful Alchemy Island maps. It has been Word Book Day this week and we have been AMAZED at the effort and creativity that the children have put into their t-shirts and character bedrooms – well done Year 5!
