Super blood moon

.In science, we have been learning about the moon. sun and Earth. Last night a super blood moon happened.

It took place in the middle of the night. starting just after 2.30am early this morning and was visible from North and South America. as well as parts of western Europe (including the UK) and north Africa.

The way the light passes through the Earth's atmosphere during an eclipse, red light from the Sun is reflected onto it, which makes the moon appear red and that is why it is given the name "blood".

It is called euper bllo moon because the lunar eclipse that took place was bigger and brighter than normal.  Click on the image below to link the BBC Newsround to learn more about the super blood moon.

Helping at Home

In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables.  It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.

In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.

Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.

Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.

PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
