Class 5

smileyfrown WELCOME TO CLASS 5 frownsmiley

FRIDAY 2nd March 2018 

What a chilly first week back at school! We have a great time reading 'Meerkat Mail' and talking about all Sunny's adventures. I hope that you all had time to play in the snow and to go sledging while school was closed for the snow days. 

 

Due to not being in school on Thursday, World Book Day has now been moved to Monday 5th March 2018.

 

As we were not in school on Friday, our visitor 'Animal Experience' has had to be postponed. As soon as new dated has been confirmed we will let you know.

mailOur topic for this half term is:mail
Meerkat Mail

All of our English and afternoon work will be based on the book Meerkat Mail. We will be writing facts files about Meerkats and the Kalahari and learning about deserts and where they are in the world. 

          

             

 

All children should be taking a book home each day. When myself or Mrs Wright listen to the children read, we will comment (in the reading diary) on what they have done well and given them a target to work on in future reading.  ​​It would be great if you could listen to your child read about 3 times per week and write a comment in their diary to show how they are getting on with their target from previous reading sessions. Your support in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
