Happy Half term! We have ended this very short term with a wonderful celebration of the end of lockdown and the diversity within the families in our school community. We value each one of you and are very privileged to share this journey of education with you. On Friday afternoon, the whole school gathered in the inner circle dressed in an array of colours and there was a jubilant feeling of celebration and hope.
Another highlight of the week has been talking to children about growth and mental health. There was a lot of reflecting on how we have grown and developed as individuals and the people who have helped us on our journey. At the end of the week, the children created some beautiful art work to represent their families and those who support them.
Safer Internet Day
This Tuesday 8th February was Safer Internet Day – a highly relevant topic for even the youngest of our learners. We always want to be doing as much as we can to help children conduct themselves safely online. As we partner with you as parents and carers, please do raise concerns that may help us to support your child. There are some super resources for families below, if you wish to continue the conversation with your child/ren.
In Maths, we have completed a unit of learning on angles. Many children got to grips with using a protractor to draw and measure angles. This is certainly something to keep practicing at home if you are able to. The sheets are attached here. Maths sheets week 6
Year 5 are very lucky to be participating in forest school next term. They will need long sleeves for both arms and legs as well as waterproofs, gloves and hats as the weather is still quite cold. Please note that shorts and short sleeve tops are not permitted, as skin needs to be covered. We will inform you of the forest school timetable at the beginning of the new term.
To help children to get ahead with next term’s text, there is a PDF copy of Irobot below. We will be studying the first short story only, entitled ‘Robbie’. If you wish to read the text with your child over the half term, please read only this story.
Wishing you a healthy and restful half term,
The Year 5 Team
