What with the Christmas production this week, making classroom decorations and a festive Worship and Praise, it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Year 5 were fantastic in the production; they spoke with confidence and sang beautifully. They should all feel really proud of themselves.
This week in maths we have started our new topic of area and perimeter. We are beginning to look at finding the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes, and next week we will move on to area.
In English, we have finished our class text and are now preparing for a book review of Goodnight Mister Tom. We have also learnt about the use of joining commas and the use of commas before a subordinate conjunctions.
In RE, the children explored the questions of whether the world needs a messiah to save it, and if God did send a saviour, what would this person be like? What would they approve of in the world today, and what would they be unhappy about? This led to some interesting discussion points.
The children have been so fantastic this week at coping with a few wet plays, tiredness from the school production and end of term fatigue! They have continued to work hard and be enthusiastic.
There are no spellings, fluency or Mathletics this week. Enjoy the break! However, the children should continue to read every day and to practise their times tables.
This term's home learning menu will be found here.
Enjoy the Christmas break!
Here is the reading menu for this term. They are for the children to work on at home and in school. If they complete a line or four corners, they get a bookmark/sticker and once they complete a full house they get to choose a book from Mrs Hard's special box. We ask parents to sign to show that they have completed the challenge.
We hope to encourage a wide reading diet and to support the children in reading daily and developing a good stamina for reading in order to complete the whole menu by Christmas.
