Welcome to Year 5
Our teacher is Mrs Waterhouse (Ms Patton teaches us on a Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon and Mr Bowden on a Wednesday afternoon)
We are helped by Mrs Chippendale.
I just wanted to say a huge well done to everyone in Year 5 for their fantastic work this half term. The children have all worked so hard. The work on space has been excellent - we have written sci-fi stories, learned about the solar system and created some wonderful space art. It has been a pleasure to see all the children settle back into school so well.
Next half term our topic will be The Victorians and I will post some more information on here after half term about some of the work that we are doing.
After half term we will also be having a focus on reading for pleasure. I have asked the children to think about the books that they like reading and the authors that they enjoy so that we can share this after half term. If you have any pictures of your child reading or if they would like to send in any pictures of what they are enjoying reading that would be fantastic - please just email them to me.
I hope you all have a fantastic half term break and thank you for all of your support.
Homework has been sent home with your child today (Monday 14th September). Please could they hand it in on or before next Monday.
English homework will always be set on a Monday and is due in the following Monday.
At the moment the children have been asked to practise their times tables for Maths.
First message of the term
Welcome back Year 5! It has been fantastic to see all of you back in school and I have been really impressed with how you have all settled in this week.
This week we have mostly focused on settling in and getting used to the new classroom rules and routines. We have also spent some time looking at the story 'The Boy, the mole, the fox and the horse.' A beautiful book if you get the chance to have a look at it. We have thought about our goals and aspirations and created our very own 'positivity jars'.
Next week we will start to give out reading books and check the reading book band level for each child. We will also start our weekly spellings next week. Homework will start the week after.
P.E will be every Thursday - please make sure that your child comes to school in their SCHOOL PE kit. We would recommend that children also wear navy or black jogging bottoms and their school jumpers as we will try and get out for PE in most weather conditions!
If you have any questions please get in touch by email, firstname.lastname@example.org
I am really looking forward to the year ahead, after the last few months it really is fantastic to be back in the classroom properly with such a wonderful group of children.
