This half term our focus will be 'Marvellous Materials' and is a science-based topic.  We will be looking a the properties of various materials and be thinking scientifically about fair and comparitive testing to give evidence for the particular use of everyday materials. mail


We will continue to read 'Carrie's War' by Nina Bowden and our guided reading sessions will be based on this book.


We usually do P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays but please continue to ensure P.E. kit is in school everyday,  This half term we will focus on netball and circuits.  I t is useful for the children to have their outdoor P.E. kit as stipulated in the school prospectus so we can play games outside.


Homework is given out on Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.  Thank you for supporting your child with homework, not only does it help to embed their learning but is great preparation for secondary school no.  Details of our creative homework afternoon have been sent by parent mail and we have discussed in class, I do hope you enjoy creating together and I look forward to seeing the finished results!  smiley

Our evacuation to Perlethorpe

As you may be aware, last year we had some chickens hatch in our classroom as part of our life-cycle topic.  Our cockerel had to go to a new home as he became rather noisy!  Year 5 currently look after our remaining three chickens: Popcorn, Peppercorn and Piri.  Please do visit them in their coop - they enjoy being given fresh grass.  I will be sending consent forms home for any children who would like to participate in helping to clean and feed the chickens.
