Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!


This week in maths, the children will be familiarising themselves with mathematical vocabulary such as factors, common factors, multiples and prime numbers.  In literacy, we are continuing with our school uniform persuasive writing then moving onto whether animals should be kept in zoos.

In art, the children will be producing oil pastel drawings of rainforest animals and we are hoping to start our sewing work on making cushions. We would appreciate it if the children could bring in a large eyed sewing needle so they can thread embroidery threads themselves.

Just a reminder for children to bring in their PE kit for Monday and Wednesday and their swimming things for Tuesday.

On Monday, Mr Pantling will taking an assembly about roles and responsibilities in Year 6 then the children will be writing letters saying what role they wish to uphold next year and give reasons why they are a suitable candidate. The roles, for example, are prefects, house captains, peer mediators, librarians etc. We like all children to have a role of responsibility.

Our visit to Thames Young Mariners is approaching. We have asked the class reps to ask for parent volunteers, so if you are able to help, please get in touch with your class rep. We very much appreciate and rely upon your support and it is a fun day! We will be sending out details of the trip and a suggested kit list later this week.

It is predicted that the weather will be hot this week so can we remind you to send the children in with a water bottle.

Next Wednesday, the children will be moving up to their new classes and meeting their new teacher. They will be informed of the details at the end of next Tuesday.

Enjoy the week of sunshine.

Kind regards

The Year 5 Team.
