Autumn Term 2 - 2020
The class are really enjoying the Odysseus story in English and learning about the Ancient Greeks in history.
PE continues to take place twice a week – dance on a Wednesday afternoon and invasion games with Mr Manly on Thursday morning. Please ensure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit, including training shoes, in school as we will also have the daily mile and outdoor activities linked to our topics.
Due to the changeable weather, please also send your child to school with a waterproof coat or jacket.
Please also provide an apron or a cover up for art lessons. As with all belongings, please ensure that this is named.
Home learning will be handed out on Fridays and is due back the following Thursday. If your child is struggling to complete any of the home learning tasks, please let us know. Reading books and reading records need to be in school every day.
Finally, if you have any concerns please contact the school.

The children have shown a keen interest in researching some of the topics we are learning about. This website is an excellent site to find out information: https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/
Please make sure you have a named water bottle and a snack. We cannot have spare cups in the classroom and the communal water fountain has been turned off.
If your child is struggling to complete any of the home learning tasks, please let us know.
Reading books and reading records need to be in school every day. As is usual, children in Year 5 may bring pencil cases to school; we aim for children to take responsibility for their own belongings.
