Friday 15th October
Dear Year 5 Parents and Carers
We have had a great week working in teams and making our final shelters for the Antarctic, using different materials for durability, warmth and strength.
Our learning next week:
In maths, we will be progressing our multiplication skills and applying them to problem solving.
In English, we will finish writing our Kensuke’s Kingdom-style narratives; focusing on the language used to link ideas and paragraphs.
In science, we will continue to explore different materials and how we might be able to separate mixtures.
In foundation subjects, we will delve deeper into our ‘Explorers’ topic with a short trip out (see details below) and in PHSE we will be thinking about how we can all challenge stereotypes and assumptions about others.
A few notices:
Parent consultations – We really look forward to meeting most of you next week. There will be an opportunity to look at your child’s books. Please can we ask you carry them over to your appointment as they are useful to sometimes reference in our discussions.
Explorers trip – On Tuesday morning we are going to explore the local area and visit Spring Grove Park. The children will already be wearing their PE kits, but it would be useful if they can bring in wellington boots or old trainers as it could potentially be muddy!
TTRS – User name labels have been sent home in maths homework books. They remain unchanged from last year so you should be able to use them if you retained them. We will be using this more in school and as part of homework from now on.
Library books - we had a great time visiting the library again on Friday. Children all now have a bookmark with a barcode. This is their ID to take out books. They have been able to independently change books over today. These must be returned within three weeks. We will visit the library once every fortnight.
Topic homework – it has been lovely to see all the different islands which have been created or designed. The deadline for this homework is now Friday 22nd October.
Winchester Science Centre – thank you to all the parents who have so far offered to help us out on this trip – if you are DBS checked, it’s not too late to volunteer!
