Welcome to Term 2!
The team are excited to get started in term 2! It is the Christmas term after all! We have the most beautiful text this term –The Tear Thief by Carol Ann Duffy, which is going to provide the inspiration for our writing. The illustrations alone are breath taking. We are starting the term with Black History week before moving onto British settlers – looking at some of the amazing history of Great Britain and exploring how artefacts are found and what they tell us of the past! One of the highlights of the term promises to be Design and Technology where we will be using tools to create frames, cams and mechanisms to display a very special, hand-painted feature on top! The term certainly promises to be a cracker!

End of Term 1
What a fantastic term it has been getting to know everyone! We have thoroughly enjoyed our text 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' and worked hard to write an informal letter, a character description and a balanced argument (we certainly have some budding authors out there.)We have also seen children making progress in reading, writing and maths but most notably may be our art. It has been fantastic to work through some artistic skills and apply them independently.
Well done to all Penguins, Owls and Eagles for having such a positive start to the year and we cannot wait to get back and start cracking on with Term 2!
Have a great break, and don’t forget to read that book so you can start quizzing with a bang when you come back. We can’t wait to see you!

Welcome to Year 5!
We hope that you had a fabulous holiday and have made lots of memories with your families.
We can’t wait to get to know our new year 5s, finding out all about your hobbies and interests as well as starting our learning journey. It’s an exciting time!
This term our literacy is based on the text 'The true story of the Three Little Pigs' written by Jon Scieszka. We love a story with a twist, and one that will surely make you smile. In numeracy we will be recapping our knowledge of place value and be looking at the four operations. There is no place like home, so our topic is the history and geography of Queenborough, where we will be finding out how Queenborough got it's name and the Dutch invasion.
Every Tuesday and Thursday morning we will be having our times table test - hopefully many of you by the end of the year will be a Multimagician! Additionally, each Friday we will be having a spelling test so please do learn your weekly spellings. They are attached inside your reading diary in case you misplace your booklet. Remember, reading diaries need to be in school every day
We are looking forward to sharing your child's learning journey throughout the term, so please keep a look out on our class gallery for photographs.
