Pickmere LOVED spending time building Stone Age dwellings in the school forest.

This week has been our first assessment week of the academic year. Children have been completing the end of year 4 assessments that they were due to take in June. We have been really impressed with the children's attitude towards the assessments this week. They have all worked incredibly hard.
Whilst the mornings may have been full of assessments, we sure have made the most of our afternoons! On Monday we learnt all about archaeological findings in relation to Stone Age dwellings. This led to us spending the majority of the afternoon building our own shelters up in the forest area. 
On Tuesday afternoon we did some art linked to Stonehenge. Children used a variety of materials and we have been really impressed with the outcomes. It's lovely to see how much the class enjoy art lessons.
On Wednesday afternoon the children got to fill in their first job application form! Mr Ashworth and I had many positions to fill and thankfully we have just about got them all covered now! We are very excited to see how the children settle into their new job roles. Year 5 are responsible for keeping the library tidy, the MacBooks charged and the lunch hall ready for diners... Amongst many other in house jobs!
On Thursday afternoon we continued learning about 'Earth and Space' in Science. This week we discussed how many moons each of the planets had. We then converted this data in to a bar chart. 
On Friday afternoon we will have our first year 5 spelling test, PE with Mr Freeman and do some practical maths activities.
Thank you Pickmere for another beautiful week! Have a lovely weekend, do something to make others smile and remember to be the best versions of yourselves!
See you Monday (with your brass instruments and oversized, old tops for art!),
Miss Wild and Mr Ashworth
