Red Nose Day
Well done to the Year 5 and 6 children who planned, organised and ran their own activity stalls on Red Nose Day to raise money for Comic Relief. As a school, we raised over £900 which is a fabulous achievement! Thank you to all of the children for their enthusiasm, for working hard, for wearing red and for spending money to help this wonderful charity.
Spring 2 Theme
Welcome back Class Turquoise! I hope that you enjoyed your half term break and are ready for another busy, fun filled half term ahead.
This half term our theme is 'We will Survive.' This will be Geography and Science based and we will learn about different climates, biomes and the animals that live in cold and hot places.
This half term's homework is a Gepography based project and the deatils can be found below.
Spring 1 Theme
Our theme for spring is 'All at Sea,' and is based around the wonderful story of Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We will be using aspects of the story and computer technology to explore and learn about different places around the world. We will also be learning new skills in survival and how to make a survival blanket.
In Year 5, we are really developing responsibility for ourselves and others. We have lots of opportunities to work independently and let our personalities shine.
Our curriculum is linked across subjects to make it meaningful, purposeful and exciting. We will upload each theme overview so that you can see what teaching and learning will be taking place.
Please feel free to drop in and see Mrs Tomlin if you have any concerns or just a question or two. We will always welcome offers from parents to support in the classroom, whether for the occasional day or on a more regular basis.
