Dates for the Diary
16th June: 12pm-2.30pm The Great Get Together
As part of the Year 5 celebration of the Feast of St.Peter and St.Paul, we are organising a multi-cultural picnic. We are doing this as part of the national initiative called The Great Get Together, an event being held nation-wide in memory of the MP Jo Cox. We would love as many Year 5 parents as possible to attend our event and donate some food from your own culture to share. It will also be a non-uniform day with children from across the school invited to wear their own clothes, preferably in national colours, for a donation of 50p.
29th June: Celebration of the Feast of St.Peter and St.Paul at All Saints Church
Year 5 are leading a church service to celebrate the Feast of St.Peter and St.Paul. There will be two services, one in the morning and one at 6pm. In the morning, we will be leading the service for the rest of the school. Parents are invited to join us at 6pm for the evening service. Children are required to be at both services.
Happy Healthy Me!
(19th May) Well done to 5H for all of your hard work in assessment week. Don't forget to bring a carrier bag to school on Monday, so that you can make a kite! See homework details below.
(12th May) A huge thank you to all of the parents who managed to get to our class assembly this morning. 5H performed to the rest of the school this afternoon and did a fabulous job! (Video to follow...)
Y5 will continue to walk, jog or run 1 mile every day. It certainly helps to wake up their bodies and brains before they start lessons.
In the afternoons, they have been practising massage techniques to peaceful music. During this topic they are learning that being happy is not only about physical fitness, but a healthy mindset as well. (Massage video coming soon!)
Last term, our Science topic was Lotions, Potions and Solutions. We learnt about properties and changes of materials. The children enjoyed completing some very messy projects both in school and at home.
On Friday 28th April they showcased the projects to parents.
English and Maths homework is now set on Fridays - children have a week to complete it.
Choose a reading book that you are going to enjoy and you are going to finish! You will be sharing your books with the rest of the class over the next few weeks.
Weekly spelling tests are on Wednesdays.
Pupils should be reading for at least ten minutes every night during the week - the best reading takes place when shared with an adult. Reading records are checked on Wednesdays.
