Year 5 Newsletter
Next week, for English, we will be continuing to write our own Greek myths. The focus of this week’s writing is to incorporate the features of a myth, building on the children’s knowledge of myths already studied. In maths, we will be continuing our unit of work on fractions, working on adding and subtracting fractions, starting with fractions with the same denominator then moving onto fractions with different denominators.
In the afternoons, the children will be developing their tennis skills with the sports coach. During topic sessions, the children will be finding out about the origins of the Olympic games as well as studying the story of The Trojan Horse. We have another session with Adrian, the coach from Harlequins, who gave a very good session on developing a growth mindset.
- The children will need their games kit in school for Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Adrian’s session is divided into theory, then half an hour of rugby. We were unable to do the practical session last week due to the adverse weather.
