Year 5 came back to school full of smiles and energy. We soon settled into Year 5 life and spent the first few days exploring SKATs, our new approach to learning alongside our curriculum. SKATs are Skills and Attitudes which we feel as teachers will prepare and equip the children for future life. If you would like to find out more information about SKATs then speak to your children or a member of staff.
In order to practise linking SKATs to their learning, the children completed an activity in which they were asked to make a Lego Dream house in groups. The second part of the activity required them to present their houses and explain their thinking to the rest of the class. We discussed as a class which SKATs linked to the activity and what these would look like in action. The children came up with some fantastic ideas!
We've had a wonderful first week and this looks to be a very exciting and enjoyable year!
