What a great half term we have had!
In English, we have finished our unit on explanation texts, where the children have created their own explanations on how mountains are formed. The children have worked really hard and it is great to see Year 5 cohesive devices evident in their writing.
In Maths, we have finished a short unit on Statistics. This was a tricky unit, especially when looking at timetables, as children understood the importance of being able to tell the time. Definitely something to work on.
Unfortunately, our Read The Game programme has come to an end. The children thoroughly enjoyed the programme and have produced some great work and learnt some fantastic new skills! I will be announcing the winners of the STFC tickets soon.
Our Golden Certificate Winner is Willow! She has shown great determination throughout the Read The Game programme and has used these skills in the girls football club which she attends with Miss Hipkiss. Well Done Willow! She will take home the Oak Class Diary over the half term break.
Although we have had lots of fun this half term, we are looking forward to all the exciting things lined up for when we return. After half term we will have an extra session of PE on Mondays, so please come into school with PE kits on Mondays and Thursdays. World Book Day is the 2nd March (first Thursday back), where all children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character.
Have a lovely break! Make sure to keep up the reading. We look forward to all the exciting things you get up to.
Miss Hipkiss and Miss Nicholas
