Welcome to Parrots' Class!
Mr Vickery (or Mr V!) will be teaching Year 5. Miss Court will be supporting the children's learning.
During the Spring Term, Year 5's P.E. sessions will be every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child is equipped correctly and ready to participate. They should have a house coloured P.E. top, black shorts, socks and plimsolls or sports trainers, all clearly labelled and kept in a P.E. bag. During the Spring Term,it is strongly advisable that, in addition to the above, they have a sports sweatshirt and/or a tracksuit. Health and Safety stipulate that school jumpers, coats and other casual clothing are unacceptable for P.E. All shoulder- length hair must be tied up and ear studs removed or taped up. Staff are not allowed to remove or put in studs but the school will provide tape if required. If your child is unable to take part in a P.E. lesson, a letter must be provide giving the reason why. Alternatively, a verbal explanation from the parent is acceptable.
The children had an amazing day at the Mary Rose Museum. They learnt all about life on board the ship, studied the properties of different materials used by the Tudors and of course, saw the wreck itself!
Have a look at the slides below:
All the children successfully discovered that the victim was Catherine Howard, one of Henry V111 wives, and that he was responsible for her death!
So, our topic for this term is the Tudors or......Divorced, Beheaded, Died...!
Congratulations to the following children for breaking their final book chain and releasing their chosen book. This is the reward of consistently reading at least 5 times a week!
This term, Year 5 will be looking to the stars and asking the question "Is there anybody out there?" They will be studying our Solar System, Space exploration, and looking for Alien life!
Watch this space for some of their amazing work.
