This week in maths, we have continued to revise both reasoning and arithmetic questions. This has involved using all four mathematical operations and the children have a secure understanding of these different methods.

In English, the class have completed a writing assessment. They planned and wrote an adventure story using all their spelling, punctuation and grammar skills (as well as lots of imagination and creativity).

In History, we put all our knowledge of Micklefield House together to make a zig-zag timeline. This shows a little about the different owners of the house from the 17th century up to today. The children were able to identify areas that have changed with the house and park over the years. For example, the Rose Garden and the Kitchen Garden.

RE this week involved looking at religious and non-religious stories about rules. The children compared the meaning of the different stories and we discussed how rules can guide and inspire us. Following this, the children came up with one rule that would make life better for people. We had some great, original ideas!

It has been a pleasure teaching Robin class this half term and I wish you all a relaxing break!

We will see you back on Thursday 6th June.

What a full-on last week we have had in Kestrel class! On Monday some of our Year 5s went to take part in the Brownlee Triathlon. They all seemed to have a great time at this non-competitive event – and we now have some budding triathletes – which is brilliant! As always, they supported each other really well and cheered on their less-confident friends. Well done Year 5!

Tuesday saw us having the first run-through of our concert songs with Mrs Thomas. The first bash is always a bit challenging, but there’s a lot of enthusiasm for this performance, so I’m sure we’ll get there with lots of practice!

Secondary school transition for some of our Year 6 children began this week, and I am pleased to say those who attended on these days came back beaming and full of enthusiasm for the big move.

In maths we have now wrapped-up our algebra work for this year (they have done fantastically well with it) and are now ready to start data handling after the holidays.

In Science we also began our new unit on properties of materials, and enjoyed bobbing around the classroom like water molecules!

Today we have received in some fantastic Greek Mask projects. We have started to interview the children in character, and will continue after the holidays. Thank you for all of your support with these at home – the children are really enjoying performing in role and interviewing one another!

A couple of reminders:

Our PE days after the holidays will remain the same: Monday and Wednesday.

Please check the news letter from the office (emailed out each Friday) for the most up-to-date information regarding the dates for Interhouse activities (the next one is cycling) and other whole school events such as Sports Days and concerts. While we try not to move these around too much, sometimes small adjustments are necessary as we move through the calendar.

 Have a lovely half-term,

Mrs Jarvis

This week, Peacocks have printed their William Morris designs. They look beautiful!

In science this morning, the children tested rocks for permeability and hardness. Then they used magnifying lenses to examine them carefully. We then looked at them with the class microscope for a closer look.

Please see the class page for photographs.

Homework this holiday is reading, times table practise and projects.

I hope you have a wonderful break!

Reminders…

·       PE is back to Monday and Wednesday next half term. (swimming continues for year four).

·       Victorian Day is the first Friday back on 7th June. Your child can come dressed in Victorian style clothing.
