In our whole school assembly, we learnt about our Readathon . We learnt that we can read anywhere and anytime. We got a letter and a book mark and the winner of this competition will get a prize from Miss Campbell and Miss Harrison. We have to bring in money and give it to the office from people who are sponsoring us. I am really looking forward to this and I can not wait to get reading!
Good Luck everyone!!
This term in science we are learning all about Life Cycles! We started our topic last week by learning about the 7 living processes. These 7 characteristics tell us if something is alive.
An easy way to remember the processes is MRS GREN. Can you remember what the different terms mean?
This week we will be drawing diagrams to show different life cycles. Can you tell me the life cycle of a butterfly? How is this different to the life cycle of a mammal?
Next week is our last week of this half term and we are going to be learning about Easter.
Easter is the time of the Christian year when Christians remember the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. They believe that Jesus, who they believe was the son of God, died for everyone’s wrong-doings and then came back to life three days later to defeat death and evil: so if you believe in Him you will live forever in Heaven.
We will be creating Easter cards to take home to our families !
What are your plans for over the Easter holidays?
Do you and your family celebrate Easter?

In music this term, we have been working on our drumming and brass skills. Half of the class go to drumming – every Friday morning – and half of the class go to brass.
In drumming, we have been learning lots of different rhythms that we are going to perform in our end of year drumming assembly. We have been working on splitting the class and playing two different rhythms at the same time. Can you remember the rhythms we have been learning?
In brass, we have been learning lots of new notes on our instruments. What instrument are you playing? What notes have you learnt?
We are looking forward to performing in our end of term performance in a few weeks …
Yesterday we visited the life caravan with Miss White. We spoke about how we can keep our minds healthy and how we can support our friends to do the same! We got lots of top tips for us to use and learnt about how important this factor was. We also learnt about how we can say NO in situations we feel uncomfortable in . We were given more tips on how to cope with peer pressure.
What did you learn?
What tips are you taking away from your experience / going to try and use?

This morning we had a Maths morning and parents were invited into our school to see how we learn maths and to help them teach us at home. In Miss Stockton and Miss King’s group we got to show the parents how we answer addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions using our written methods. Parents were given WAGOLLS to show them how we set out our methods and even got the answer booklets to mark their child’s work. It was a fantastic event and lots of adults across the whole school attended. Thank you to everyone for their support.
*What did you enjoy the most about this morning?
*Do you think this has helped your adult to support you with your homework at home? How?
As part of our R.E topic this year, today Year 5 have visited a local mosque. The Zakariyya Mosque welcomed us for a visit this morning and we were shown around the different areas and given a lot of information about how Muslims use the Mosque to wash and pray. We were told about the 5 pillars of Islam in detail. All of this information will be very helpful for us, when we start to learn more about this religion later in the term.
What did you learn about today?
Can you remember the names of any of the 5 pillars?
Today is world book day and Miss Campbell’s literacy group have been writing book reviews and discussing why we love to read! We have come into school today as our favourite book characters and wrote about why we love these characters and their stories.
What is your favourite book and why?
Today we have had a very exciting smiley reward, the Zulu Dancers!
