The children have settled back into the new term and they really enjoyed the WOW day we had on Wednesday. We started to learn about our new theme 'Between a Rock and a Hard Place' which will cover the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
On Wednesday the children started to learn about the Stone Age and they even tried some traditional Stone Age recipes! We made a traditonal Fruit Compote recipe and Oat Flat Bread.
The children really enjoyed eating the finished dishes.
We will continue to learn about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age over the Summer term.

Helping at Home
In Year 5, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday; on Thursday we also set an additional piece of home learning which is due on a Tuesday- this term we will be focusing particularly on our timestables. It is expected that children use Timestables Rockstars and RM Maths each week; they have their own passwords to access these activities.
In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading.
Although many children read fluently and independently at this age, in order to build higher level comprehension skills it is important that children are given the opportunity to discuss what they have read and share their opinions about the texts they read.
Children will visit the school library each week – 5 Dali on Monday, 5 Escher on Wednesday and 5 Gaudi on Friday.
PE is each Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
