Week 7

Tuesday – Rounders at The March Academy

Week 6

Bastille Day Celebrations 

Year 5 spent the day learning about the origins of Bastille day, tasting a variety of French food, building the Eiffel Tour from art straws and engaging in a game of boules!

District Sports

What a fun filled, jam packed week Year 5 have had.  On Wednesday a number of Year 5 joined together with children from Year 4 and 6 to represent the school at District Sports.  The school came joint 1st with many fantastic individual achievements too.  Check out this week’s newsletter for more information.

School Trip – Kent Life

On Thursday, the sun shone bright as Year 5 visited Kent Life in Maidstone.

As well as a variety of historic houses, gardens and animals, children were able to see Victorian style houses, like those we imagine Jim, the character in our current focused reading book, would have lived in before he became a street child. Children also took part in a Victorian rag rug style workshop making their own rag rugs.  A great day – Thank you again to those parents who helped out.

Week 4

French Visitors

On Tuesday we were joined by our French pen friends who had travelled from their school over to spend the day with us. We spent an amazing, sunny day with them.  In the morning we took part in some ‘getting to know you’ style activities, making friendship bracelets, drawing self portrait and playing team games. The fun continued after break when we went over the the school field to play rounders, relay races and football. It was great to see so many friendships blossoming. Before lunch we were joined by members of the Twinning Association and presentations were made. After a lunch of sausages and chips the children walked over to the Marsh Academy and were extremely lucky to watch the highlights of their school performance – ‘We Will Rock you’.

skills (FMS Logo) to create a range of spectacular shapes and images.

Ancient Greek – building replicas of Ancient Greek Temples.

As part of our super start for this topic we explored and designed Ancient Greek buildings such as the Parthenon and Temple of Poseidon.

We focused on the structure and design of Greek temples and used junk modelling to replicate them.

After construction, we carefully selected the colours, painted and decorated our buildings.

This term we will be learning all about Ancient Greece.

Thank you to those of you who have brought in junk modelling materials for us to start creating replicas of Ancient Greek Temples.

Reading Plus

Hello All,

Please can you check that your child has completed all of their Reading Plus lessons this week. They have until Sunday to complete their lessons if they have any outstanding.

Reading Plus is carried out every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and also set for homework throughout the week.

Though many are participating regularly at home, there is still a need for many to do this. I cannot emphasise the importance in which this will have on children’s overall reading, especially towards areas such as comprehension.

There is a new incentive, which started this week. If your child has completed all of their Reading Plus lessons by Friday they are rewarded in the afternoon with 15 minutes of Golden Time.

Thanks for your continued support.

Year 5 Team.

Welcome Back to Term 5

Hi All,

Welcome back to Term 5 we hope you had a lovely break.

Reminders

Just a reminder that the school are no longer providing water bottles to reduce the school’s plastic waste consumption.

Please can you ensure that you provide your child with a reusable water bottle clearly named – especially as the weather is getting warmer.

PE will continue to be on a Thursday, please ensure your child’s full PE kit is in school and labelled.

We still have a handful of parents, who have not registered for Class Dojo, we will be sending reminder letters out again this week. Please ensure that you have signed up as we use it as a means of communication.

Watch this space for updates on Term 5.

Thanks for your continued support.

Year 5 Team.
