Willows’ Double Success!

For the first time ever 100% of children read and we won the KS2 trophy, very well deserved Willow! We not only won the KS2 Buster’s Book Club trophy but St Nicholas Bear will also be spending a week in Willow Class for an improved attitude to reading. Well done Willow class!

Week 4

Welcome to week 4

RE:

Last week the whole school took part in RE week. In Year 5 we explored three prayer stations looking at worries, forgiveness and thanks through the story of Good Friday. We also explored the Trinity and the symbolism of water and what it is good for. We then went outside onto the playground and wrote our ideas in chalk onto the floor. After that the children choose their top five meanings for water and washed the rest away. We reflected upon how Christians might feel about Baptism, why a Christian might describe God using symbols and why Christians worship God as a trinity.

English:

This week children have been developing their own adventure/finding stories.  Please ask them to share their storyline ideas with you.

Guided Reading:

We are currently reading ‘The boy in the girls’ bathroom’.  This week we find out about Bradley’s first meeting with his counsellor Carla Davies.  The children are really enjoying this book so far.

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday the children log onto Reading Plus.  This is also set for homework each week. Please ask your child about the stories they have been reading on this platform and ensure that they are completing 2 x 30 minute sessions each week at home.

Maths:

This week we have been continuing our journey with fractions, focusing on adding and subtracting fractions.

TTRS battle this week is between the different houses. Who will win?

PE:

Just a reminder that PE is on Thursday each week.

Football Fun

 

Well done to all of Year 5, who persevered and gave 100% at the football tournament last Tuesday.

A special mention to St Nicholas first team, who came 4th, just missing out on 3rd place.

All of the children did so well – especially as most of the other competitors were Year 6! St Nicholas may not have won but we had the most fun and danced throughout the day!
