Year 5 Update

We are really enjoying our Butter Finger topic and the children have been very interested in finding out about Cricket and The Caribbean.  The children have also had the chance to write a biography on a sports star of their choice.  We have been so pleased with their efforts in researching and writing these biographies and we’re sure you’ll enjoy reading these when you have the chance. Our cams day is fast approaching – Thursday 10th May – please ensure your child has a shoe box in school for next week.

Our recent science lessons have involved unpicking the lifecycle of a plant and dissecting a flower to understand the process of reproduction in some plants. The children have also begun planting their plants in preparation to sell at the market in a couple of weeks, which they are very excited for.

Following the success of the new Year 5 behaviour policy and especially the tally system, we have decided to celebrate the children’s good behaviour at lunch times by adding an extra tally making a total of six per day.

We have a few exciting dates to look forward to this term.  The children are having the chance to visit Brighton Hill to experience a Secondary School in action on Thursday 28th June (please inform the office of any other taster days your child may be attending);  our Green Fingers Market, a chance to look at your child’s book and potentially buy the plant that they have grown, will be held on Friday 25th May; finally, of course our Butser Trip on Thursday 14th June (please remember to complete the form and hand in as soon as possible).


We hope you enjoy the sunny bank holiday weekend.
