We were so impressed with the poetry written by the class. Here is a poem by Layla-Faye, who has been super creative with her ideas!
We launched our topic with a South African themed day. In the morning, we looked on Google Earth to find out where South Africa is and learned many facts about South Africa. We especially enjoyed looking at the football stadiums. We tasted many different foods, including: bobotie curry, biltong and malva pudding.
In the afternoon, we had a special visitor- Mrs Butler. Mrs Butler taught us all about gumboot dancing and how it all started. We all had a fantastic afternoon and owe Mrs Butler a massive thank you for giving up her time to be with Year 5.
Welcome to Year 5! We hope you have had a wonderful break over the summer holidays. I am looking forward to working with the class this year as they start in Upper Key Stage 2. This year will undoubtedly be hard work, but will hopefully be an enjoyable one. To help support your child in reaching their targets, we would like to take this opportunity to refresh your memories about a few routines:
Help and support is always welcomed in the classroom, so please do not hesitate if this is something you would like to do. All help is gratefully accepted.
If you have any issues or questions, please do come and see us, before or after school. Our door is always open.
We hope your child enjoys their time in Year 5.
Miss Hayley Warren and Mrs Alison Robinson
