Weekly round-up: 23.02.24
The children are now half the way through Year Five, time really does fly! This half term, children will continue to learn about the Earth and space in Science. In geography, they are learning about North America and all the countries that make up that country. In DT, the children will be making a moving toy with a cam mechanism which should be fun.
In maths, we have started a unit on percentages and decimals which the children are excelling in so far. In literacy, we have started a book by Philip Pullman called Clockwork. It is a fascinating read and the children have enjoyed the story so far. They will start by writing a diary entry from a characters point of view.
Please remember that children should be reading three times per week for at least thirty minutes per session and they should record their page numbers and comments in the reading record. Also, can the children please practice TT Rockstars once per week.
Finally, I am sure you will be sending Mrs. Poulter all your love at this terrible and sad time for her. We miss her dearly of course, and look forward to welcoming her back in the future. In the meantime, Mrs Roche and Miss Sewter are here if you have any queries or questions.
