AUTUMN 1 2017

We are all so pleased with how well the children have settled into their new classes and it's great to already see new friendships forming.  We have started the year with the magical topic of 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' which the children are really enjoying.  In Literacy, they have been making use of their interesting and adventurous vocabulary to start describing settings and to bring images of them to life.  As the half term goes on, we will delve deeper into the magical setting of Narnia and the story itself.

So far, the children have shown great resilience in Maths and have risen to the challenge of developing their understanding of place value involving larger numbers, up to 1,000,000 and also decimals.  In the next few weeks, we are also looking forward to building on their calculation skills with this wider range of numbers.

The final countdown is on for our Year 5 residential trip to Stubbington Study Centre and we know the children are extremely excited and looking forward to the fun and adventures that are ahead as they prepare for their first schoo residential.  Similarly, the children who are not attending Stubbington are looking forward to completing a range of creative activities at school.
