Welcome back!

Welcome back!

Can you believe it is the final half term of the academic year?! This year has flown by and we have a busy, but exciting, few weeks ahead! Here are some of the diary dates we have coming up:

Thursday 14th June- Year 5 trip to Butser Ancient Farm

Friday 15th June- Sports Day

Thursday 28th June Brighton Hill Taster Day

Shortly, we will begin learning the songs to our Year 5 and 6 production of Peter Pan. The children are very exciting about this and we cannot wait to start rehearsals.

Line dancing

In the last week of Summer 1 each class participated in a line dancing workshop with a dance instructor. The children engaged well and show great enjoyment.

Reward afternoon

It has been fantastic to see the positive impact our new behaviour policy is having and each time more children are receiving their full amount of reward time. We had 3 different themed classrooms the children could choose between which involved:

Challenge room- Building the tallest tower with marshmallows and spaghetti and the strongest tower with newspaper.

Games room- Lots of party games, singing and dancing!

Arts and crafts- Collaging, drawing and creating friendship bracelets.

Those children who lose some of their reward time spend time reflecting on their behaviour, the reasons why they haven’t achievement their full amount of time and what they could improve on. We would appreciate if you could support us by talking this through with your child.

 

Green Fingers Market

At the end of the half term, it was a joy to see the children sharing their learning with their parents, carers and family members during our Green Fingers Market.  We were overwhelmed with your generosity when purchasing your children’s plants and we would like to send a huge thank you. We raised a fantastic £110.20!!! This money has been donated to Cancer Research which was decided by the children.

 

Many thanks,

The Year 5 Team
