Welcome to term 5, we hope you had a lovely Easter break. We would to welcome Miss Townsend to the team and congratulate Mrs Davies on the birth of baby Ettie. We would like to wish the Year 6's luck in their SATS, we are proud of their hard work.
This term, our topic is called Bright Lights, Big Cities. In geography we are comparing North and South America, the art and English is also linked to this topic. In science we are studying electricity. In maths, the children will be using their previous knowledge to apply it to complex problem solving/investigations, using a range of maths skills and of course the Year 6 pupils are preparing for SATS tests. In RE, the children will be learning about Islamic beliefs in life after death. In PE the children will be learning skills in netball and tennis. We will be continuing to teach French and music.
The children will be given their homework on a Tuesday and it must be completed by the following Monday:
- Topic (optional)
- MyMaths (electronic)
- Reading (at least 4 x a week)

This may change slightly after SATS for Year 6, more information to follow.
Please ensure the children have their PE kits in all week to allow for changes in the timetable.
Children must have: black shorts, white t-shirt, trainers, suitable jogging bottoms and jumper for the colder months (not school trousers or jumper).

Team Building Day and The Year 6 Sleepover
On Friday 9th September, all year 6 took part in a team building day at Gateway School. The day was a valuable learning experience for the children, exploring how to work together as a team to be successful, preserving when tasks don’t always go to plan, and it encouraged flexible thinking, which will definitely aid their challenging/enjoyable year ahead. Overll, the children had a great day and were brilliantly behaved.
The day was not over yet…
The year 6 children were then invited to have a year 6 sleepover to help the children bond with their new classmates and teachers. It was a great success! The children played games, watched a movie, had story time and were fed ‘healthy’ pizza and chips, finished off with popcorn and sweets. Again, the children were super throughout the sleepover and all the year 5/6 team were very impressed; we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
