It has been amazing to welcome the children into Class 5 to begin our school year. Everyone has made such a positive start tyo the year and it has been wonderful to see all the smiling faces in Year 5 and 6.

Mrs. Hanley and I have been really impressed by the positive attitude and work ethic that has been shown by everyone. We know that we are in for a fabulous year.

By now the children have started their History topic: World War II. We have already started watching videos and reading books to get into the time period. I am hoping to plan a trip to Eden Camp for next half term, where we can see the period come to life. I will let you know more about it when it gets closer.

The children in Year 6 should have brought home their letters about the trip to Crucial Crew - and ALL children will have mentioned that plans are already underway for the return of the St. Gerard's Residential in June 2022!

If you want to find out more about the residential, there is a link to "Thornbridge" in the "School Info" section of the website. We will also be holding a meeting for parents in the coming weeks - so look out for that.

In Maths we have been revising the 4 operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - and this will remain our focus for next week as well.

In Literacy we have been writing diaries, based on the story of "Adam and Paradise Island". This topic will carry on for the next couple of weeks - and we will be starting to write persuasive letters... a useful life skill.

Our PE days are Thursday (outdoors) and Friday (indoors). The children have been great at remembering to come dressed in their PE kits so far.

In Class 5 we ask the children to read at home at least 5 days a week - and (ideally) to a grown up twice a week. They should have brought home their reading record book already. 

Please do get in touch with me using the email address above, or add my school account on messenger.

Here's looking forward to the rest of the year!
