Reminders-

Year 5 sleepover was a success!

Next Friday is Children in Need. 

Week 9 - Back to Class!

We hope you all had a great half term. We have seen that you have been very busy; lots of homework has come in regarding our new topic Harlow which we are very excited about. 

I know that this week children have spoken about the sleepover pretty much every lesson of every day! They are buzzing about the idea. I am looking forward to tonight and we will update SeeSaw so if you have set it up, you can see some pictures as we go through the evening! 

This week in Maths we have started looking at Multiplication. We have learnt some new key vocabulary: factors, multiples, prime numbers and integers. Children are beginning to feel confident that multiplication is just repeated addition. Children should be practising their times tables ready for the weeks to come.

During English this week, we have been looking at persuasive writing. We have built our success criteria using a new colour system which is working well. We looked at what a good one looks like ( WAGOLL) of a persuasive piece of writing about F and B. We have practised to learn this off by heart. This is so we can learn how to structure different sentences. We will begin to write our own persuasive pieces of writing about our school and eventually Harlow in the upcoming weeks.

During Science this week, we have looked at how plants reproduce going through pollination and fertilisation. This half term we are looking at which animals lay eggs and which give birth. At the end of this half term, we will be having our puberty talk discussing how our body changes. We will notify you when this happens a week before. If you have any questions about this, please ask.

During RE, we have been looking at ceremonies that occur in Churches. Tony, from the local Baptist church, will be coming to visit us next week to discuss what a ceremony looks like at the church.

In Topic, we have been looking at the history of Harlow. We had a very long discussion on our findings about Harlow as well as seeing pictures from 1960. Many children was shocked about how we used to dress and the fact there was fewer cars on the road. 

Finally, we have had Art this week which we have looked at Leonardo Di Vinci. We studied some of his sketches that he has created and began to look at shading and hatching. We shall continue this over the next few weeks.

We hope you have a nice break Friday night away from your lovely children. We can’t promise that your child will get any sleep but we can promise they will have lots of fun! Please don’t forget to pick up on Saturday at 9:30am!! 

Mr Worton-Geer and Mrs Stockwell.
