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 Summer Term, Year 5's P.E. sessions will be every Wednesday and Friday. Friday will be swimming day. Please ensure your child is equipped correctly and ready to participate for both days. 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 for Wednesdays. 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. For swimming, a suitable costume and towel is 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.
WOW! What an AMAZING day at Butser Ancient Farm!
So much to do, from digging for artefacts to building fences....
Check out the slides below:
A huge thank you to all the parents and family members who attended the children's Tudor Exhibition - and a particular well done for trying out their variety of Tudor biscuits! (They were actually quite yummy!).
The children were particularly excited and looking forward to today as they really do appreciate you supporting their learning.
Check out the slides below and, once again, THANK YOU!
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.
