Bear Grylls: Survival School
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely Easter break.
Hopefully now the snow, wind and rain has passed, we will be taking the learning outdoors with Bear Grylls survival school.
In topic we will be exploring the incredible feats of Bear Grylls and other great explorers. Brushing up on our map and compass skills in Geography. Building our own shelter and survival equipment in DT. All leading to our very own expedition up to Barnwood Aboretum.
Are you ready for the challenge?
Polite notice: Bear Grylls is a highly trained expert in survival skills. Children should not attempt to recreate any of his stunts or techniques at home.

As a reminder to parents, children will be given one piece of maths and English homework each Friday. This is to be handed in by the following Friday.
Additionally, children are expected to read daily for 15-20 minutes and/or practice spellings.
If you have any issues or concerns, please come and speak to us.
Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week.
5S have their PE sessions on a Monday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).
5B have their PE sessions on a Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor).
However occasionally we may have extra PE during the week. Hence, it is best to leave their PE kits in for the whole week and only take it home over the weekend if needed.
