Year 5

Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back to a new half term. Year 5! Wow what a journey your children are going through - half way through their time with us! We are so proud to be your children’s teachers and have already been impressed with the positive attitude and growing maturity the children have.

Thank you to all parents for helping to settle the Year 5 children into the new term in such a smooth manner. It is really helpful that any concerns or initial issues have been brought to our attention so swiftly because this has enabled us to act as fast as possible. Our three new classrooms have been set up and organised in a timely manner and we have been really impressed with the way children have respected this new learning space.

English and Maths

This term we will be studying The Tear Thief written by Carol Ann Duffy. A calming, beautiful story about tears being stolen to power the luminous moon. The key vocabulary words we have pulled from the text are; sly, enticing, gleaming, mischievous, brimming and luminous. Please do try to use these words in your everyday conversations! Maybe a drink your child has made could be brimming or you might pop outside to look at the luminous moon! Let us know what you come up with on Class Dojo! Very soon the school library will be up and running again as will our Accelerated Reader programme.
