Weekly Updates & News

Week ending Friday 12th October 2018


We have been having a fantastic time in 5H over the past few weeks. A few things that we have been up to are:


  • Developed our swimming skills within our weekly swimming lessons at Tudor Grange (Our lessons will change to George's Swimming Academy after half term)
  • Worked on our place value and addition and subtraction units in maths lessons, really working hard on our reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies.
  • Developed our descriptive writing, through the reading of a couple of quest stories (The Purple Lady and Emeka, the Pathfinder). We have also been adding parenthis, relative clauses, descriptive noun phrases, similes and adverbials to our writing to add greater depth and description.
  • Explored space and the solar system in great detail within our Science topic. (Please try to fill in your moon diaries to the best of your ability)


It really has been a great few weeks! Thank you all so much for your generous donations for the Harvest Festival this week and for those who have donated their sponsorship money for the NSPCC. It really will make a huge difference to some children's lives. (There is still time to bring your donations in, if you get the chance.)


And just a final reminder that it is Parents Evening next week. If you returned your slip, then you should have had it returned to you by your child (or a sibling) on Wednesday. If you haven't brought it back in, then please do so as soon as possible so we can book you in with a time slot that is still available.


Thanks everyone!

We've had an absolutely fantastic start to our new year here in 5H. The children have settled in brilliantly and have made a superb first impression through their excellent attitudes and hard work.


We have been working really hard on the presentation of all our work, with the expectations being higher this year across all subjects.  We  have begun our Science topic of Space, learnt 'Head, Shoulders, Knees and Feet' in French, started our 'Rock' music topic and we have had our first swimming lesson. Not to mention, all of the Maths, Reading and Writing we have been doing as well.


It really has been a great start to the new school year and we have many other exciting things to look forward to. smiley Mr H
