Year 5

Update for Week beginning 4.6.18

We hope you have all had a lovely half term.  We are looking forward to beginning our new entrepreneurial project with the children.  We will keep you posted on our progress……

English and Maths information:

In English, we are going to be reading and exploring ‘The Highwayman’ as a year group.  This text is linked to our previous learning related to smugglers on the coast and has a certain air of mystery, which we are sure the children will love.  We are going to learn about real life smugglers who were present along our coastlines many years ago.

We will also be working on comprehension skills with the children, answering questions about The Highwayman, looking at both inference and deduction.

In Maths, we will be learning more about volume and time and applying our skills to different real life problems.  There will be mymaths activities linked to each the learning we have covered this week to help reinforce the work we have done in class this week.

General Information:

Year 6 Calshot Residential – Please Click Here to access the presentation that was shared about next year’s residential trip. Deposits are due in on Thursday 29th March 2018.

Reading:  The children need to remember to bring in their home/school book everyday.  Our library session is now every Wednesday which is a great opportunity for the children to change their library books and our newly refurbished library. The children will need to return their current book before taking out a new one.

PE: our PE timings have changed and will now be on  in the hall on a Wednesday.

Games: for this half term will be on a Thursday and the children will be playing golf.

As we are now in the summer term and the weather is getting hotter, it may be advisable that the children bring in a sun hat for lunch times and when we are at kings park.   Please also remember to send your child with a water bottle so they can refill during the day to keep hydrated.
