In Year 5 we have two classes Mrs Paterson and Mr McKinnon. Mrs Paterson's class is helped in the mornings by Mrs Whyman and Mr McKinnon's class by Mrs Matkin.
Reading is taught though guided reading sessions in class. We still encourage children to read at home and would appreciate it if you could sign your child’s reading diary when they have read to you. These are checked daily in class. Bee stickers will be earned by those children reading on a regular basis throughout the week.
* P.E. will be on a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon for Mr Mackinnon’s class. Please send your child to school in their P.E. kit on a Wednesday morning and send them with their school uniform to get changed in to.
* P.E. will be on a Tuesday morning and a Thursday afternoon for Mrs Paterson’s class. Please send your child to school in their P.E. kit on a Tuesday morning and send them with their school uniform to get changed in to.
Important dates for Y5
As part of our science topic on evolution and inheritance, we are taking the children to the Natural History Museum in London on Thursday the 19th of October.
Whilst we are there, the children will be participating in a workshop on the theme (where they will get to examine and handle fossils and participate in a game based on Charles Darwin’s theories which will be led by experts at the museum) and they will also be completing a series of challenges as they tour round the museum.
The children will leave at approximately 7.00am and return for approximately 8.00pm. As we are leaving early, please arrive promptly in the hall for 6.50am. We know this is a long day but this will make the most of our time in London.
Please collect your child at 8.00pm. A text message will be sent if there are any delays.
Two packed meals for dinner and tea time need to be provided and enough drinks for the day.
