I was overwhelmed by your kind wishes, cards and gifts today. Your children are all amazing and I know that they are all ready to move into Year 6.

I wish them all the best!

YEAR 3/4/5 SWIMMING

Please could you make sure your Yr 3/4 child has their swim kit in school on Thursday 20th July. We will be have plenty of fun in the pool to round of an excellent year! Due to transition day, Year 5 will be swimming on Monday 17th of July. Apologies for the last minute changes. We have tried to move things around so that no class misses out.

Community Spirit

BERKELEY PRIMARY loved waving off the amazing cyclists last week for #BSQ2BSQ!  It made it all so real for them after their week of sponsored cycling, where they collectively cycled 340 miles to help raise money and awareness for 3 charities close to the hearts of many in our community, Meningitis Now, CJD and Sue Ryder.

Many of the cyclists and the organisers of #BSQ2BSQ  are coming to school this Monday for a special assembly to share their success story and help our children to further understand the impact they have had on this phenomenal community event.

Thank you all for your support and participation in our part towards this event with Nightrider and On ‘ya Bike week. You have all helped to raise a huge amount for these charities and the children have loved being a part of this incredible community venture! What a wonderful town Berkeley is! These children are the future of Berkeley and they will never forget how much they’ve achieved over the last few weeks!

Well done to everyone involved! 😀

Music Assembly

We have some excellent musicians at Berkeley Primary School. There have been two music assemblies and the children performed brilliantly.

Maths

WALT: use pictograms to show data.

Year 5 children used smarties to create pictograms of the different colours in a packet.

Then we decided to use the same smarties to show how many we had altogether. That meant that we had to have a key so 1 smartie represented a number of smarties.

Science with KLB School

WALT: make a rocket.

Today we were lucky to have 2 Science teachers from KLB visit the school and teach a lesson.

We used vitamin tablets (fizzy), water, film canisters and stop watches to carry out the investigation.
