Well, we are all back from a fantastic residential trip to Whitby, where the children did themselves, families and school proud with their fabulous behaviour and good manners. I think they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have hopefully returned home with lots of stories to tell and facts to share!
This term our topic is 'The Vikings' and much of our English learning will centre around our class novel 'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo.
In Geography, we will be studying weather and climate. We are also asking children to participate in a competition related to naming all the main countries of the world. The following link allows you to access a quiz on European countries. This will provide a solid foundation for the upcoming global competition.
There are many exciting sporting events coming up including our annual sports days, Kwik Cricket at Meltham Cricket Club, Mini-Tennis, Sports Hall Athletics, Girls Football, Neiley Races and the Huddersfield Schools Swimming Gala. Hopefully, as many children as possible will get involved in these fantastic events.
Until mid-June we are joined by a trainee teacher, who will be doing the majority of teaching, supported by me (Mr Keane). Her name is Ms Corcoran and she is of course available to discuss your child's progress or any concerns you might have. Please make her feel welcome.
Enjoy the sunshine!!!
WELCOME TO YEAR 5
Well, the Summer holidays are over and we move forward into another exciting academic year in Year 5. Allow me to extend a warm welcome to our pupils and their families. I am looking forward to meeting you all over the coming weeks and working together closely to enable your children to reach their full potential and enjoy a fun and stimulating year.
My name is Mr Keane and I will be supported in Year 5 by Mrs Corley.
This term our topic is Ancient Egyptians.
Homework is set weekly on Fridays. It is due back by the following Wednesday.
Children are also expected to read for 15 minutes and practise times tables for 15 minutes every evening.
Our P.E sessions are Tuesday and Friday afternoons. On Friday afternoons we go swimming at Holmfirth Pool. Please ensure your child has the correct kit in school for each session.
Please check back from time to time to find updates and information that will be useful to both pupils and parents.
Maths Meet=This man has done lots of fraction and decimal little teaching sessions. These videos may help parents revise their knowledge if it is a long time since they have studied fractions and decimals and want to help you with your learning about fractions and decimals.
