Year 5 got to explore first hand the local history of Hertfordshire with a walk along the New River. Students made their way along the river to St Augustine’s and back.
During that time, they connected this history of the river to features around it – freshwater being a key reason for it’s construction.
Some students were even lucky enough to have a visit from Rev Grant!
Year 5 Team
History is important. It helps understand our place in the world. Local history helps us connect the bigger picture with our small place in it.
Firstly, a big welcome back to everyone, and especially Year 5.
All of Year 5 who have settled into their new classes well and both myself and Mrs Plester have been delighted to see everyone’s smiling faces. We are both incredibly impressed at the resilience of the students and their eagerness to get back into the learning (and see their friends of course!).
If you need to get in touch with one of us, please contact the office. For school work questions, you can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
A couple of housekeeping things to remember in the coming weeks (as we establish new routines):
Students should be reading every day and recording the date, page numbers and a comment in their reading recording. These need to be returned everyday (initially) and signed once a week by an adult. Good reading habits start from day one!
All students should be logging into Google Classroom. See your teacher for password resets.
Home Learning (Due on Thursday of every week)
Home learning is online, through google classroom. This weeks activity is maths and an easy task to practice taking a photo and uploading it to the assignment. You can do this on any Smart phone through the Google Classroom app. See the video for help.
Spelling quiz in via Google Classroom. Please complete the quiz by Thursday.
Everyone needs practice at this. Even if you know then, try the Studio or Soundcheck
It will be hot in the coming days. Please send in a water bottle for students and remind them to bring it home at the end of the day.
We’re absolutely thrilled to have each and everyone of you – we’re looking forward to an exciting year and building a growth mindset.
Remember – nothing is impossible!
Team Year 5.
