Welcome to Year 5

Maple 1 - Mrs Tilbury and Mrs Hockley
Maple 2 - Miss Gander and Mrs Hockley

Reminder - PE is every Monday and Thursday

Week ending 15th November 2019: 

We have had a great week, full of extra activities. Up and Under came in to deliver the Healthy Heroes sessions again, and we had our sixth FRIENDS workshop. There were some very odd socks worn on Tuesday to show that we are all different and unique during Anti-Bullying Week. On Friday, we celebrate Children in Need with a Non-Uniform Day. (with a £1 donation).

Next week:  Numeracy - Mrs Tilbury's Group: Addition and Subtraction, including looking at the inverse relationship between the two.
Miss Gander's Group: Multiplication and division, including factors and multiples.
Literacy - continuing our suspense story unit based on The Nightmare Man.

In Science, we are looking at materials and their properties. If anyone has any bubble wrap they would be willing to donate for our lesson, please send it into your class teacher.

Year 5 will be taking part in a Hockey Festival at Ralph Allen next Tuesday. Please make sure your child brings in their PE kit that day. We will leave school at 9am and be back by lunchtime. Can each child have a water bottle with them that day to take.

Homework:  Set on Friday 15th November - due in on Wednesday 20th November.  
Term 2 spellings have been sent home, please carry on practising them weekly. It is also expected that children log on to DoodleMaths at least 3 times a week, to complete their Daily 5/6/7/8...

Have a great weekend,

The Year 5 team.
