Look what we have been up to...
This term we have learnt about World War Two! We were evacuated to Murton Park to spend the day in 1940! We learned how to bake (on the ration), make our own butter, make rag-rugs and put on our gas masks! We heard the air raid siren so had to try out the Anderson shelters! We taped the windows with blast-tape and even had a go at being the Fire Guard! Back at school, in science, we worked out which was the best materials to use to keep us warm in an air raid shelter and created Blitz pictures in our art lessons!

Reading At Home:
A reading record can be found in your child's homework folder. It should be completed at least 4 times per week to record reading completed at home.
Children can now access reading books online. The class teacher will have set up reading books online at each child's current book band. Login details will have been given to each child at the start of the year. Click the image below to link to the 'Bug Club' website.

This year we will be studying...
This half term our topic is:

(It's a study of Ancient Greece)
FITNESS FRIDAYS - WITH ELITE
All classes in Y5 get a chance to work with the Elite Coaches on a Friday. To make changing between classes easier, we would prefer pupils to come to school wearing their official Green/Black PE kit on Friday instead of their regular uniform
This term we will be doing athletics outside. Children will need to wear their school black PE shorts/black tracksuit bottoms & t-shirt for these lessons. Black school hoodies maybe worn over the top to keep pupils warm for the rest of the day. As this is the uniform for the day we ask that children wear the official school PE kit rather than sports clothing from other clubs etc.
5D - Art
5U - Elite Sports
5P - Change 4 Life
5G - Change 4 Life
(5P, 5U & 5G will need to bring PE kit in a bag to change into for the afternoon session)
