Next Garnet Class Assembly - Thursday 28th February 2019

Welcome back to the Spring Term!  Year Five are thoroughly enjoying reading 'Stay where you are and then Leave' and are hoping that Alfie's father will come back from fighting in WW1. They have produced some fantastic writing and were further inspired by our recent trip to the fantastic Imperial War Museum... In maths we have become measurement experts and are able to convert between different units. Our focus in Science is 'Marvellous Mixtures' and promises to involve a fair few experiments. In Project we have been learning about World War One - what caused it, how propaganda was used and what life was like in the trenches.. 
If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher, and thanks for your continued support.

We expect Year 5 children to change their own reading books as often as possible, bringing their reading records in to school frequently to be checked by the class teacher.  We encourage you to read as much as you can- at least 20 minutes every day!
