It’s been another week full of exciting events – we’ve had our KS2 sports day, which wasn’t dampened by the drizzle at the start of the day. Everyone worked together as a team to gain points towards the sports day cup. The running races were hotly contested – there are definitely some future Olympic sprinters in the year group – with the winners of the heats racing in the finals. Well done to everybody who took part. We all had a great time, had fun and showed off some fab dance moves too.
We have also come to the end of our country study. India is an amazing country, which is geographically diverse, making it so interesting to learn about. The culmination of our country study was showcased at the carnival today. Thank you so much for the effort you put into the children’s outfits – they looked incredible.
We have started a new theme in English based on the environment and the problem of plastic. In maths we have been finding equivalent fractions, converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa, and multiplying fractions or mixed numbers by a whole number. We start our new topic of Coasts next week, with our trip to Chichester Harbour (6th July) supporting this geographical study.
Children need their PE kits on Monday 28th June.
Homework is due on Thursday 1st July.
Reading passport entries are due on Thursday 1st July too – the two winner from each class will get to spend time with a chocolatier, making their own tasty treats!
Have a wonderful weekend,
The Year 5 Team
