Friday 12th October

Happy half term holidays everyone! 

Over the holidays, have lots of fun and lots of rest before we start back with our exciting new topic - Scream Machine! 

Before then, we have set a few challenges for you: 

P7 and P10 of the new maths homework books 

Your 2 week homework challenge 

Spelling lists (ie/ei words)

Times table tests to look over and practise 

Just a reminder, bring warm/waterproof clothes for the first Monday back, including outdoor shoes. 

This is not a non-school uniform day, just a few extras to keep warm and dry for our exciting, outdoor memorable experience. 

Thanks, Mrs Lynam-Smith and Mrs Swan

Friday 5th October:


In P4C this afternoon, we looked at the song 'One Jump Ahead' from Aladdin. Some of the concepts we explored were: stealing, power, magic and success. Here are the questions we will be thinking about over the next week:
'How do some people get away with things successfully?'
'Is magic real?'
We are working on our Creative thinking skills. 

New homework sheets were given out today and explained to the children. Spare copies can be found in the classrooms. Homework will be based around our new topic 'Scream Machine' from now until Christmas. 

We also discussed the other types of homework we have in Y5. For your information, this is what we discussed:
- Spelling lists / rules go home every Monday to learn
- Blank copies of X-factor and times table sheets are available to do at home, along with ideas of games to play
- Maths homework books will go out next week. We will update the children with a page number each week, and will be rewarded with house points for having completed it. 
- Reading records will be collected every Friday. Children get house points for reading at home and it is expected that they will read 3 x per week.
