Dear Parents/Carers,

 

On Friday, Year 5 will be completing Halloween-themed activities all day. If you would like to, you may send your child into school in their Halloween costume. As with the previous letter, please ensure that accessories are not sent in with your child, such as novelty weapons etc which are prone to break or cause issues. Please ensure that your child has suitable footwear and coats to suit the weather conditions.

Kind Regards,

Choir Young Voices Online Resources

Dear Choir,

Congratulations on making such a positive start to Choir Club. Your enthusiasm has been fantastic and we have loved starting to get to grips with the vast array of music! You should now have a paper copy of the lyrics.

To practise at home, you can visit https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/music-room and type in the password: YV2021

This will give you access to the lyric videos as well as the fantastic dance tutorials.

Choir members who come prepared will be given extra house points!

Mr Banfield

I am a Newdaler

We have been amazed today by the children’s poetry skills. They have planned and perfected their own poems of what makes Newdale such a wonderful place to learn. Keep an eye out for the incredible vocabulary choices and use of repetition and relative clauses.

Which substances are soluble in water?

The children tested a variety of powdered substances to see if they would dissolve in water. This is a great experiment to try at home. Simply mix water and powders from your kitchen cupboards (e.g. salt/pepper/flour) and see if the substance appears to disappear into the water without leaving lumps. It should still be a liquid to be soluble.
