To all the children and parents of Year 5,
We have thoroughly enjoyed hearing from you all over the last few weeks. We hope you get a chance to rest, have fun and spend time with your families where possible. Have a lovely Pesach and we look forward to communicating with you again after the holidays!
We miss you lots!

At the moment, everybody has a little extra time on their hands (get it?) Why not learn how to touch type? Click on the link below and follow the levels to learn how to do this with confidence. Take your time and remember to take regular breaks. Happy typing!
We hope you have had a good weekend. We will now be communicating with you on here for a while... Remember, you can send us an email anytime and we will get back to you during school hours :-) email@example.com. Please remember that any one of us will reply to your email so don't write to one of us in particular :-)
Let us know what you have been up to, are you making any videos? Cooking delicious meals? Creating masterpieces of art or online games on purple mash...? We want to hear from you.
We are having a few technical issues with the grid and resources which we hope will be emailed to you some time tomorrow...please bare with us! We will also upload it to the blog.
In the meantime, check out the video below of Mrs Woolstone reading some more of 'Holes' so you can sit back, relax, and listen to our class book.
We miss you lots!
Mrs Goldsmith, Mrs Berger & Mrs Woolstone

Mrs Simon came to visit us today to talk about people who are deaf or deaf blind As she works for JDA. The children have been learning about Diversity Awareness Month and how everyone is different. They learnt how to sign their names using finger spelling and were taught some simple greetings. It was a very interesting and informative talk which the children greatly benefitted from.
We have been learning some techniques which will help us to solve tricky questions in Maths. We have looked at doubling and halving to help solve tricky multiplication questions and learning the rules of divisibility so that we can quickly identify which numbers can be divided.
In English this week, we have been learning about recount writing. We have given the children wide experiences of different recounts to familiarise themselves with what is expected when they write their own next week.
During computing, we have been developing our spread sheet skills using the 'how many' tool to calculate the number of vowels in words.
Reminder: please can you ensure all the girls have socks in their PE bags.
Spellings this week have been copied out in to their diaries so that children can continue to revise once homework books have been handed in.
Today we used manipulatives in maths to help us solve problems involving negative numbers.
We had a very interesting discussion around rights and responsibilities during PSHE and whether or not everyone should have equal rights. What would it be like if we did not have any rules?
