Year 5

Update for Week beginning 16.10.17

Please click the following link to access the presentation that we shared for parents at the start of the new term. Year 5 September Information evenings 2017-18

The children have been bringing in some wonderful home learning this week, which we will be sharing with the class.  Please ensure it is in by Wednesday 18th October 2017.

English and Maths information:

This week the children will be doing English and Maths assessments based on the work we have done so far in year 5 and consolidating their year 4 learning.  These assessments will help us to plan for after half term.


Other curriculum news:

On Wednesday we will be walking to Kings park and carrying out a nature walk as part of our topic.  The children will be collecting natural materials and making their own natural sculptures.  This comes from the work we have done in class looking at sculptors such as Andy Goldsworthy.

As the children have worked hard this week, we are going to do some exciting science experiments involving some salt, sand and an egg!  The children will explain more at the end of the week.

**As we come to the end of our ‘What a load of junk’ topic, the children will be displaying all their hard work and exciting discoveries for you to see. This will be in the Year 5 classrooms on Wednesday 18th October and will be from 2.30 until 3pm and we would love to see as many of you there as possible.  Please could the children bring in a bag so that they can use to take all of their creations and displays home at the end of the day.**

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.
