Welcome to Year 5!
We are the Falcons
Mental Health Week 18th -24th May 2020
The annual event is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation and this year's theme is kindness.
At this difficult time, we are seeing a large number of selfless acts in support of the NHS charities. Who will forget Captain Tom, 100 years old, walking his garden in support of others.
Acts of kindness don't have to be spectacular, a simple smile, helping a family member or colouring rainbow pictures and displaying them are all valuable.
The video below shares the thoughts of a number of children and outlines all the ways that kindness benefits us. Did you know that being kind helps us to live longer and fills us with energy?
After watching, why don't you have a go at completing an acrostic poem, using the provided template, or colour in the Be Kind poster.
Don't forget to send any poems and pictures in so that we can add them to our class page.
Hello Falcons and Parents!
We hope you are all safe and well and avoiding the family arguments.
As you are aware, school is now closed for the foreseeable future.
Your child's education is still important and for that reason we have put together a pack of resources for home learning.
The children have brought home a paper copy of this pack but here is also an electronic from if you wish to re-print.
Education is important during this closure and we do encourage you to try and do at least one or two activities a day to refresh your learnings or prepare for the coming terms topics. Remember you are allowed to have fun whilst learning.
Many organisations and celebrities are supporting children's education and we have gathered together a selection of useful websites, games and resources to help your child with their learning.
We look forward to seeing you all back at school when the time is right.
Mrs Wraith and Mrs Knowles.

In our first week KAYDEN made us giggle!
We were talking about measuring and we had discussed; mm, cm, m.
Mrs Wraith asked, "What's bigger than a metre?"
Kayden, "2 metres"
You were right Kayden BUT I was hoping you would say kilometres
You are an absolute star!
Claudia wrote 'hafto' in her answer. Mrs Wraith asked, "What does this mean"
Claudia explained, "When you've got to do something"
Mrs Wraith, " Do you mean HAVE TO"
Claudia " I have looked up forty in the dictionary and I don't understand what it means - it just says 4 x 10 is forty and that is what 40 is not forty"
Mrs Knowles explained " that does say 40, forty - a 4 and 0!
OWWWWWWW! sadly there were 3 more children that also did the same trick!!!!
Not just you Claudia, you just said it louder!
What children sometimes come out with 'is quality'
Mrs Wraith, "Can anyone spot a word in the word 'adorable'?"
Children " Yes miss, the word 'adore.'"
Harry, "Like 'a door' in the front of my house' (Harry knew this was a joke)
Harry, "actually 'a door able' to open in front of my house"
Harry, it was soooo BAD it was GOOD!
Our school promotes healthy eating and therefore we request that children do not bring sugary foods and drinks into school for breaks or dinner , water bottles have been provided by school for every child.
You will be given homework on Friday and you should hand it in by the following Friday The homework will alternate each week between English and Maths .
You will be given spelling lists on Friday and we will have spelling activities each morning , remember you could beat a teacher.
We will check your reading diary at different points in the week - if you are reading regularly then you will gain a sticker on your bookmark, once this is full you can choose a brand new book.
Forest School will take place every Wednesday - Please ensure you have appropriate outdoor clothes and a change of shoes.
PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday afternoon - It is beginning to get colder so I recommend that you have trousers and shorts in your PE kit. Earrings must be removed prior to lessons. Staff can not remove earrings but can offer tape to cover the earring. Children who are not able to remove their own earrings or have tape applied will not be allowed to participate in PE lessons.
Further details on this are available in our policies section on the school website
