Summer Term News



Welcome back! The final half of summer term in year 5 is underway. Only a few weeks left to work hard and get ready for the big step up to year 6 and being top of the school! We have plenty to look forward to before then and the main item on most children's (and teachers'!) minds is the upcoming trip to Willen Lake. Can we please remind those wishing for their child to attend this great experience that final payments and medical forms now need to be made and returned as soon as possible, ideally no later than Friday 14th June!


In our English learning we will continue focusing on linked focused pieces covering a variety of genres designed to stretch pupils' application of key grammatical areas! A big focus in Maths continues to be times tables as well as securing accuracy and consistency with calculations involving fractions, decimals and percentages. Our Science learning this term will be looking at investigative skills - focused on practical science. We will resume honing our sewing skills within the term with an Art unit, 'Talking Textiles' combining textiles skills with literacy skills.


Special events this term are as follows:

13th June - 11+ Meeting

20th June - Year 5/6 Sports Day

27th & 28th June - Willen Lake Trip

6th July - School Summer Fete

12th July - Willen Lake Assembly


Further details of all the above will be sent out nearer the time.


Please may we take this opportunity to request that you check and sign your child's homework diary each week, so too their Maths and English Workabooks. Please also ensure all items of clothing and water bottles are clearly labelled. Thank you.


Thank you for your continued support.
