Welcome back Class 5 and a Happy New Year to you all! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday with all of your family and friends!
I have attached below the new Spring term Curriculum Newsletter and also the Spelling list for our weekly tests this term
A quick reminder to make sure you read each evening at home with a parent/guardian or independently and that you record your reading in your home/school diary. Below is a list of Year 5 recommended reads - have a look through the different books to see if there are any you like! I'm looking forward to hearing about the books you have read!
Cheshire Fire Service - 28.11.17
This morning John and Tony came in to school to talk to us about fire safety at home. We watched a safety video with lots of useful hints and tips. They told us that our smoke detectors at home should be checked once a month and that we should sit with our families to create a fire exit plan. We went into the smoke tent outside and got down low once the tent was filled with smoke to escape.
This week we have done lots of activities and had class discussions all about bullying. We talked about what bullying is and what we think it means and spoke about the different types of bullying. We looked at different scenarios and thought about what advice we might give and how people who are being bullied can get help.
We created some posters about the different aspects of bullying which we presented in our whole school assembly on Friday afternoon.
RAF Heritage Centre Burtonwood 6.11.17
On Monday, we visited the RAF Heritage Centre as part of our topic work on World War Two. We found out about the war in Warrington and our local area, rationing, evacuation and what life was life during the war for children. We even got the chance to go on an old WW2 aircraft!! We had a great time and learnt lots of new information to help up with our work on the war!
Welcome back to school!
Below are a few important things to know for this year:
In Year 5, you should be reading for a minimum of 30 minutes each day. Please record what you have read each evening in your diary.
Homework will be on-going and will be sent home on a weekly basis.
PE will take place on Thursday afternoons this half term. However, please make sure you have your PE kit in school each day in the event that there are any last minute timetable changes...
As part of our Year 5 music curriculum, you will receive weekly guitar lessons. These will take place every Wednesday afternoon commencing Wednesday 13th September. The guitars will be provided for you ... but you can use your own if you have one!
