Welcome Back Year 5!

Hello All and Welcome Back.

It has been lovely to see the children back at school, all of whom are looking fresh-faced and well-rested after a super summer break. As we know each other well as a team, we have been able to hit the ground running with our learning in this first week back.

In English, we have spent time researching the eight British Heroes our new table teams are named after. Ask your son or daughter at home if they can remember them all and what amazing facts we have discovered about them!! Our first piece of writing in Year 5 has been a detailed description of these eight Brits. The finished pieces of work are very impressive indeed.

During maths, we have considered an overview of the Year 5 maths curriculum and how it steps up quite a bit from Year 4. There is absolutely nothing to worry about, but a top tip would be to complete any maths homework promptly in order to help embed our learning through the week.

Our afternoons this week have considered the theme of ‘self-belief’; what better than to use the hashtag #believeinyourselfie and create our own self portraits! You will have the opportunity to see some of them at the meeting next week. Hope to see you then.

Today we also visited the park and completed the ‘Golden Mile’ for our health and well-being, together with some buddies from Year 1.

See you all next week,

Mr Lee
