Happy New Year!!
We hope you had a really fantastic Christmas and the time after allowed you to feel rested from the busy 'run up'. A huge thank you for your very generous gifts. It was really appreciated and we will spend wisely...
Friday 1st February is Mrs Dench's last day in Yr 5 and Miss Brown will start the following Thursday 7th February. From Monday 4th February the class will be re-named: 5WB. At least it sounds the same, so if you are stuck in the habit, no one will really notice!
If you have any questions about the change in teachers, please come and speak to any of us.
We look forward to a great term. This really is the term we see some improvements in the children as they begin to actually use all the new Yr 5 skills and techniques that were introduced at the start of the year.
Sorry for the long delay from the last blog update, we have all been rather busy. Life at school has been great fun since Christmas. It is always at about this stage in the academic year where us teachers find that we start to get some high quality work from the children as they have had a term to settle and understand the high expectations. 5WD have certainly been meeting our high expectations! 😊😊😊😊
Our poetry unit was a pleasure to teach as the children had amazing ideas and really thought about word choice and the effect they wanted to have on the reader. We are now loving Macbeth. Their understanding of the play is really strong and we are looking forward to producing some skilled writing next week using our noun phrases and fronted adverbials. We have truly found teaching English such a joy as every single child has been so enthusiastic. Thank you 5WD!
We celebrated our second whole class treat this week. Well done everyone. Hopefully by the time they next achieve their reward the weather will be warmer and we can get out and about.
Next week we will be completing some assessments, they will be spread out and we will complete the Maths assessment after half term. Parents evening is also next week and we look forward to seeing you all then.
