Batik

This afternoon, year 5 looked at Batik artwork and used melted wax and wells to begin creating their Batik designs. Next step: adding dye!

Homework

Dear Parents/ carers,

It is incredibly important that the children are completing their homework.

Children should be completing:
Daily reading – this can be done online through Bug Club or using the school books which they can bring home.

Daily times tables/ spellings -. After Easter, weekly times table activities will resume in their homework books. Spellings will continue to be stuck into homework books.

Additional activity – this will be stuck into their homework books and will differ weekly.

As many children are losing their homework sheets, we will be asking them to stick everything in on a Monday when their book returns home.

Books will continue to be handed in on Friday and returned on a Monday after Easter.

Please can children bring their homework books in this Thursday so that Easter homework can be given to them.

Thank you for your support,

Year 5.

Red Nose Day 19th March 2021

We will be supporting this charity by allowing children to come to school/ nursery wearing their PE kit along with something red. Please do not feel the pressure to buy something red; any splash of red will do!

Due to no cash donations allowed in school/ nursery, we have set up a Red Nose day donation page on Parentpay for you to donate. (Please note, this is not a page to buy a red nose)

Year 5 Return to School Information 08.03.21

Dear Parents/carers,

We are aware that there are a few queries regarding the children’s return to school.

PE days will continue on Tuesdays (outdoor) and Fridays (indoor). Children can continue to wear their PE kits to school on these days.

Reading diaries and homework books will need to be handed in on a Friday and will be returned to you on Monday. Please ensure that the children complete their diary with any reading that they have completed that week. The expectation at year 5 is that they read every night. It is imperative that they continue to complete reading and homework throughout the week to ensure that they can access work in every subject.

As we will be unable to see the reading diaries throughout the week, please continue to communicate with us via the year 5 email address: newdale.year5team@taw.org.uk

Online learning will cease.

Thank you for your support,

The Year 5 Team.
