Week beginning 5th December

Our penultimate week has come and gone with lots of exciting learning taking place. 

In Literacy, we demonstrated all of our knowledge of poetry from this term in our final piece of narrative poetry. Our poems told a story of a journey on or in water and used figurative language and rhyming words to create a cohesive piece. Some of us then performed these aloud, reading our own compositions with intonation, volume and tone.

In Numeracy, Year 5 have been working hard on adding fractions (including mixed numbers) and have shown great resilience as this it quite a challenge. Year 6 have started their new topic of converting units of measure. We started with metric units and today looked at imperial units of measure and how to convert them to metric. 

In Science, we created our own mythical creature and used our knowledge of classification to group our animals based on their specific characteristics. We then had to draw and describe these creatures, much like a real life taxonomist would. 

We have also looked at the importance of immunisation this week in PSHE. This is just one of the ways that we can keep our bodies safe and healthy. 

This week, we also had the privilege of watching both EYFS and KS1 Christmas performances. The young ones were amazing and I could see a number of proud brothers and sisters in the audience. 

For any parents who were unable to attend the Year 5/6 Reading Curriculum Evening on Tuesday, I have attached the presentation below. Please work with us to support your child in their reading by ensuring that there is at least 15-20 minutes (minimum) a day specifically dedicated to reading.

In our final week of term, we have a number of events:

13th December - Children will be singing to parents on the playground at the end of the day. Come and have a listen and spread the Christmas cheer.

14th December - Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas School Dinner!

16th December - Trophy assembly in the morning to celebrate all the hard work and effort our children put into their learning.
