Summer’s coming

Jul
15

Hi all,

It is almost the end of term, so here is a brief look at what the children have been doing in the last few weeks and some important dates for the diary.

The children have been busy this past couple of weeks with science experiments to test forces. In geography, the children have been researching Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. The children have now also finished their class novel Skellig and have written some fantastic finding tales based off of this. 

 

Important dates:

  • Non-uniform day – Friday 19th (Please bring a bottle if you’re wearing non-uniform)
  • Rounders game between the year 5 classes – Monday 22nd (P.E. kit needs to be brought in as usual)
  • Summer concert – Tuesday 23rd (Please bring in costumes for the performance)
  • Summer fair – Tuesday 23rd (Each class will be running a stall. Dolphins are running the ‘ice a cake’ stall and Whales will be running the ‘bear in the square’ stall. Children will be expected to help with this for part of the afternoon in order to raise money for the school)
  • Last day of term – Wednesday 24th (1.30pm finish. Please encourage children to bring in bags to take home any learning from this year)

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 5 Summer concert

Jul
9

Hi all,

This year for the summer concert, the children will be performing a dance to ‘I just can’t wait to be king’ from the Lion King. The children are learning the dance at school, so please could you encourage them to practise or perform the dance moves to you using this link for music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJEBV11ONHE .

We would like the children to be dressed as animals, so please could you provide them with a yellow, orange, animal print or brown t-shirt and black shorts or leggings.  Some of the children have bought in brilliant masks for home learning, which we are aiming to use on the day, so we would really appreciate it if anyone could make good quality extra masks to be worn during the performance. For those without masks, we will try to face paint on the day to make the children into different animals. Please could you let us know whether your child is allergic to face paints so that we can allocate any already-made masks to those particular children with allergies.

Thank you again for your continued support.

Year 5 learning this half term

Jun

Year 5 have had a busy few weeks so far. In maths, we have been refreshing our knowledge of formal methods for multiplication and division and we are now moving on to focusing on mental strategies. In english, we are in the process of writing a discussion text about the advantages and disadvantages of going to school vs home schooling, based on our class novel Skellig. The children are now beginning a topic on forces in science and we’re looking forward to carrying out some investigations about gravity, air resistance and friction. We will also begin our topic of ‘Australia and the Great barrier reef’ over the next few weeks.

The children have now finished their Arts award discover project and have made some fantastic puppets, stages and created some brilliant images. Here are just a few:
