Battle of Troy

Over the past few weeks, some students from Dali and Gaudi have worked together to create routines that retell the Battle of Troy through drama and dance. They first began by looking at the way in which the boats transitioned across the water. Followed by the building of the Trojan horse, finally leading to the battle istelf. They thought creatively how they could use different levels and speed to perform the story effectively, resulting in some fabulous performances.

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.
