Summer 2019

Summer 1.5 - week beginning: 20.05.19

 

It is worth noting that this week our Y5s are having their NFER testing week. There are tests in both maths and literacy but don't worry, there's nothing that you need to revise for - they are just a check on progress now we head towards the end of the year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your class teacher. 

Science - Our topic for this half term in Plants, Animals and their Habitats. This week is all about metamorphosis and the wonder that turns a caterpillar into a butterfly. Hungry caterpillar anyone??

ICT - continuing our new topic all about coding with our new program: Scratch. Continuing to follow on from making our own drum kits!

**Please could you collect an empty toilet roll in preparation to bring your cutting home in the week before half term. We'll update you further when you need to bring it in. In a nutshell, we have been looking at asexual reproduction and each child took a cutting from a pussy willow bush. Let's hope they survive!

Summer 1 - week beginning: 22.04.19

 

Well Happy Summer to everyone! We hope you all had an amazing rest (particularly with all that glorious sunshine over the weekend!) and are ready to step it up a gear in the Summer Term!

 

As usual with the beginning of a new half term, there are new units to learn! Here is a flavour of the things we will be getting up to in the coming weeks and months!

 

Literacy and Focused Writing will be combining over the next few weeks as we take on a new way of delivering our literacy curriculum. All very exciting! Essentially, literacy and FW will be combined to make the same subject! One week of skills in literacy, then we combine that with our text (which will be Kensuke's Kingdom this term) for our longer pieces of writing. It's a great idea - let's see how it works!

For this half term, 5SH and 5D are swimming. Please make sure you have the correct equipment (the baths are very strict about no shorts with pockets!) and that your child has given their class teacher a goggle letter if they wish to bring them.
