5W 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5W
"We rise by lifting others". - Robert Ingersol
Summer term is underway and there is lots of exciting learning going on already. In RE the children willl be studying Pentecost and the impact of the Holy Spirit. In English we have been studying the text The Great Kapok Tree. We will be writing play scripts and non-chronological reports based on this story of animals in the Amazon Rainforest. In our history topic (AD 900) we will be looking at the Mayan civilisation and finding out about the Gods they worshipped, how they discovered chocolate and how their calendar and numerical system were among the most advanced in the world at the time.
A few useful reminders:
- Reading books are changed as and when required. Children can request their reading book be changed whenever they have finished their current books. Reading books will not be changed unless reading records are signed to show reading is taking place regularly outside school.
- PE lessons are on a Friday. PE kit should either be brought in every Friday or left in school and taken home at half term to be washed
- Homework is usually set on a Friday and is due back in the following Tuesday
- Spellings are issued on a weekly basis on a Monday and are tested on a Friday.
