Year 5 have had a busy day today. We began by reading John McCrae's 'In Flanders Fields'; finishing the afternoon by painting our own poppies.
If you would like to know a little bit more about John McCrae and his world famous poem, have a look at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAWfiTM2KsA or even better, ask the children!
We have got lots of exciting things planned for this term, and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children over the next few weeks.
I thought it might be useful to share some information about the children's timetable.
Monday - Spelling Quiz/New spellings handed out
Tuesday - Outdoor PE (trainers needed)
Wednesday - Homework to be handed in
Thursday - PPA afternoon - change classes for different sessions
Friday - Homework/Newsletter to be handed out/Uploaded
Arithmetic Quiz/Times Tables Quiz
Our class reader for this term is Phoenix by S.F. Said. We will also be studying War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. If you have any of these book titles at home, please encourage your child to bring them in.
See you all tomorrow.
