This week in Y5 (w/c 8.1.18)

All week we have been focusing on time, reading all kinds of clocks and timetables. Do keep practising at home, especially those analogue clocks, to keep the new skills sharp. 

Next week we are heading off to ancient Greece with our visitor and workshop on Tuesday. Any children wishing to dress in Greek costume on this day are very welcome to (no other non uniform please) but school uniform is fine too. Thank you to everyone who has already paid towards this fantastic, immersive and engaging experience.

Following on from the Greek day, we’ll be learning about the Olympic Games in ancient times and life in Sparta and Athens ready to write non-chronological reports. On Thursday it’s the first reading reward playtime of the year; if you don’t want to miss out, make sure you read at least 3 times over the weekend to reach the target of eight times over two weeks.

Ask your children about today’s visiting “Sleeping Beauty” pantomime. It was almost as good as the KFJS Christmas production last month! Oh yes it was…

Have a wonderful weekend!
