It's All Greek to Me...

Our theme this term is 'It's All Greek to Me' and we have been learning about Greece and its ancient history.  In English, we have been looking at Greek Myths, writing our own playscripts and creating our own mythical characters.

5 Dali had their class assembly on Friday and they performed their own version of Theseus of the Montaur which they have written and directed. They have had some great ideas and really enjoyed the experience! Well done!

I really enjoyed doing the Greek play and I really enjoyed my cool part mainly because it was near the end.

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.
