Well done to everyone who won a prize at speech day today. It took teachers a lot of time to decide on the awards and there were many children who came very close to getting a prize, in addition to those that did.
DON'T FORGET: you can see lots of videos from Shine - not just the break dancing clip - check the links below the video.
Also, there have been quite a few new questions added to the lifecycles quiz this weekend, so have another go! WARNING: many of the questions are very tricky so it might be worth having the archive.org site open when you do it... research - not cheating!!!

Shine - Break Dancers from rik millington on Vimeo.
Once again this week, Year 5 demonstrated their formidable performing talents at the first ever BSM 'Shine' afternoon. It was a fantastic event, all organised by Miss Moore, and we managed to get quite a few video clips for you to watch again (including the one above). If you don't feature then apologies - it was because there were so many great things going on round school at once! Be patient letting the videos buffer (load up) for the best viewing experience, then sit back and enjoy the show :-]
Here are links to the other Shine videos: Dancing, Animation, Singing, More Singing, Even More Singing, Sketch, Brothers, Hip Hop 1, Hop Hop 2.

Some of the maths homework given out today went to the wrong group. The trangle numbers worksheet was supposed to go to Mr Millington's set. Please ignore if you got one of these sheets and you aren't in that group... thanks!

Year 5 sing 'Lean On Me' from rik millington on Vimeo.
Here's a video of the brilliant Year 5 rendition of 'Lean on Me' from assembly last Friday. Apologies for Ms Travi's coughing and also the wobbly bit in the middle - teachers put their arms round each other during that section too (though not for long).

Homework is to build a quiz about plants and lifecycles - our current science topic. Each person needs to enter at least 2 questions (one easyish, one hardish). You can add more if you like!
Questions need to be animal and plant related, and try to make them to do with lifecycles if you can - for example things to do with lifespan, amount of offspring, how they are born, etc.
Here are a couple of links to help you get your information:
1. Arkive.org - this is a really, really great site with masses of info (text, photos, videos) about thousands of different species. Well worth adding to your bookmarks.
2. Kent Science Lifecycles links - scroll to the bottom of the page for lots of activities where you can learn more about lifecycles.
The quiz is below - you need to get to the end to enter in your own questions. These need to be read and approved by a teacher before they are entered - so you might not see them til after the weekend.
