Year 5 Week 39 2013

Years 5 & 6 Marching With The Parachute Regt Band
The children have worked very hard this week on retelling and writing their own version of The Boy The Dog and The Spaceship, by Nicholas Fisk. 

They have been using a range of connectives and adventurous vocabulary. The homework that the children completed, linked to this work, was fantastic!

In Mathematics this week, we have covered prime and square numbers, doubling and adding decimals and mental methods. The children have Mathematics homework in their books that is based on this work, which needs to be handed in by next Thursday.

In Topic, we have continued to explore Space Travel and we have also started to look at the Sikh religion. The children have all shown a keen interest in exploring different beliefs and sharing their opinions.

Today, a marching band from the Parachute Regiment has been in school.  It was fantastic to watch and has definitely inspired us all! 

Linked to this visit, our musical instrument this year is the Cornet. Each child has been assigned their own instrument. Please ensure that  instruments are brought into school every Thursday and Friday for Music lessons.

Have a lovely weekend.
