Year 5

Update for Week beginning 11.12.17

This week we are rehearsing for our Christmas Candlelight service.  Your child we have words to learn, either for songs or for readings.  Please encourage them to practise these at home and bring them to school each day for our rehearsals.

Please remember that our Candlelight service is on Monday 18th December at 7pm.

Children in Y5 & 6 need to be in school by 6.40pm on Monday 18th December ready for their Candlelight Carol service, when the Church door will be open ready for parents to enter. Year 6 will come in via the Year 6 entrance and Year 5 through the children’s entrance. All children in these year groups will take part in the service.

Although there are no tickets for the candlelight service, there is only room in church for 2 adults per family. Please do not bring young children to the service.

Collection: The service should finish at around 8:15 p.m. Parents/carers please collect your children from the same place they came in. i.e. Year 6 from the Year 6 entrance and Year 5 from the children’s entrance. We hope you will then be able to stay and join us for refreshments in the church hall.

English and Maths information:

This week the children are working in groups to produce a Greek animation by the end of the week using StopGo Animation on the ipads.

Their challenge consists of:

  •  choosing a Greek myth
  •  writing a playscript
  • creating a storyboard,
  • creating their characters out of plasticene
  • producing a set to film on

they can do this however they like but they must be ready for filming on Friday.  This is a very exciting challenge and their animations will be published (if all goes to plan!) on the school website for you to see.

We will continue with morning maths meetings across the year group, recapping all the work we have covered this term with the children.

General Information:

PE: in the hall on a Monday

Games: at Kings Park on a Tuesday

Please ensure your children have their PE kits in school for these days.

A quick reminder that all children should have a water bottle in school and as our lunch break starts a little later than before, the children would benefit from a healthy snack at break time.

We will continue to share the incredible home learning that the children have brought into school – thank you for all the support you have given your child in this.

Please ensure that your child is working through their MyMaths homework.  Your child should also be using their diary to practice their spellings, times tables and reading.
