Year 5 update

In English, Year 5 have been having lots of fun reminiscing about a favourite memory of theirs.  They have written a neat copy and we will be displaying these outside 5H in the next week, we know you will be just as impressed as we are with the end result.  Hopefully you’ll get a chance to see Year 5’s great work when you come in for Parents Evening.

As mentioned before, we have had a strong focus on staying safe on the internet this term.  This week Year 5 have been working diligently writing a song, advert or designing a poster to help other children stay safe.  As teachers we have been so impressed with the end results.

On Tuesday we had a representative from the NSPCC to highlight to children who they can talk to if they ever need help. Your child will have come home with a sponsorship form.  We would really appreciate it if your child could learn the maths facts from Option 2 list 3.  If your child could collect as many sponsors as possible, all the money will be going towards the NSPCC, we will then test them on these facts on Thursday 1st February.  Once they have been tested they can collect the sponsorship money.  Please can all sponsorship forms be returned by Wednesday 7th February.

You may have seen on the website all children have been set up with a Times Tables Rockstars login.  This is a fun resource and allows children to practice their times tables in a fun way.  You can download the app on to a tablet or play via their website. Once your child has had a try, we know they will get just as hooked as we are.


Many Thanks,

Year 5 Team
