Another super week in Indigo 2!
In English, we have been focusing on relative clauses and semi-colons. The children wrote a letter to Professor McGonagall today as Harry. I was really impressed with the level of effort all of the children put in to ensure they produced their best writing. In maths, we have continued with place value. We have been ordering, comparing, reading and writing numbers up to, and within one million. In history, we found lots of different towns and cities that were named by the Anglo-Saxons. We ended the week by making Christmas cards (early, I know!). These will be sent off to the company we used last year and you will get the chance to by your child's design on cards, wrapping paper and gift tags.
Have a great weekend,

A brilliant first full week as Year 5s! We are well and truly stuck into our book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and have begun our English learning by writing a biography about J.K. Rowling. The children have produced some fantastic pieces of writing using relative clauses! In maths, we have begun with place value and started our learning by thinking about the value of digits, saying and writing numbers, ordering numbers and using inequality symbols. In history, we learnt all about the Scots, Picts, Angles and Saxons invading Britain and how it was split into seven different kingdoms. We finished off the week by starting to design our own house crest.
Have a fab weekend,
Friday 7th September
A busy, but fun first week back. It has been lovely getting to know you all; I know we are in for a great year! We have spent the week thinking about key written rules and expectations in books, as well as going over routines in the classroom and the school day. The children have also had the chance to draw their favourite book cover for display as well as writing a mini review to go with it.
P.E. will be Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons; please ensure your kit comes into school with you on Monday if you don't already have it here. Remember, it is Mr Honey and Jessica teaching you on a Monday morning, not me, I will be back in the afternoon.
Have a great weekend,
Sunday 2nd September
Hello new Year 5s! I hope you have all had a fantastic summer (I am excited to hear all about it!) and that you are all ready and raring to go.
When you return on Wednesday, please can you bring your P.E. kits with you. We have a lot of 'bits and bobs' to sort out in the first three days before we get started with our topic 'Harry Potter', which I know you are all going to be excited about (but probably not as much as I am!).
Make the most of your last few days,
Autumn Term Topic
Our topic for the autumn term is Harry Potter. Myself and Mr Fisher are very excited to be teaching this and have lots of wonderful things planned for you. We will be focusing on the first book (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone) in our English lessons as well as completing lots of art and D&T too.
Our science focus will be 'animals including humans' and 'living things and their habitats'.
We will also be completing most of our history learning this term. Year 5 history is all about the fall of the Roman Empire, Britain's settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and Scots and the struggle between the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons up until 1066.
