Our new PE tracksuit can now be ordered from Penn Sports.
We have now started our Year 5 Reading Race! Every Friday we will be taking in the children's reading records to update the chart.
Every 7 home reads = 1 box on the chart
10 boxes on the chart = a prize.
Lucky Listener signatures will also count!
Year 5 Next Week
What we will be learning next week:
Maths - Equivalent fractions

A website we have been using a lot in class is BBC Super Movers. We use this for timetables and different maths and grammar rules. If you would like to use it at home here is the link
Living things and their habitats
This half term the children have been learning all about different life cycles of animals and plants.
This week we research zoos and debated if they should be banned.
Here are some pictures of the children dissecting a flower!
Mr Lewis kindly brought in his pet reptiles for the children to see, hold and listen to facts about. He brought in a leopard gecko, corn snake, boa constrictor, bosc monitor and African snails!
