Dear Year 5,
It has been a pleasure to teach you this year, 2015-16.
Here are a few more photos for you to see! The slide-show photos were taken during our last Art lesson, 'Paint, Draw, Create!' There are also some older pictures from one of our Summer term Music lessons that I found!
Enjoy your Summer Holiday!
From Mrs Bennett
Welcome to Year 5! Summer Term Topic: 'Earth Matters & Wild Water'
Our class teacher is called: Mrs Amy Bennett.
We are lucky to have some wonderful teaching assistants who work in our class as well: Mrs Reeves, Miss Lester, Mrs Cappello and Mrs Saunders.
In Year 5...
We all work hard and we take pride in our work.
We are kind and caring towards each other and have a classroom where everyone respects each other.
We are developing 'Growth Mindset' in Year 5 to help us with our learning:
Every Monday morning we use lolly-sticks to randomly select our new learning partners and we sit next to them in the class, for that coming week!
There are no 'sets' in Year 5. Instead, our tables are organised in a horse-shoe design because we all work hard to 'grow' and to improve from our own starting points.
I thought I'd add a 'Year 5 Notes' box to our Year 5 page.
I'll try and keep updating this with anything I remember to ask you/ share with you...
Residential - day:3.
Good morning! Most of the children are already awake and reading their books and chatting away in their bedrooms this morning (at 6:30am). They were excellent at the Cathedral yesterday, the Pilgrim Badge workshop leaders even said, "They are the quietest class they've had!" They also found out more about the Cathedral on a guided tour and we will follow this up by learning even more about St. Richard. These activities were followed by a beautiful Evensong service
Year 5 Residential Day:2
After having pasta-bake for dinner, a pudding and a walk around the grounds followed by hot chocolate, a snack and a story the children finally got some sleep last night.
This morning everyone is up and about and starting to have showers.
Breakfast will be at 8am before we begin day:2 of more activities.
When we can we will update with more photos.
Have a good day!
Year 5 Residential Day:1.
The children have had a wonderful time crabbing and exploring the shore at Dell Quay today (photos to follow). They have been highly praised by the Harbour staff for their knowledge and their brilliant behaviour. When taking part in crabbing there were squeals of excitement when they found the various crabs. After putting the creatures carefully back they took part in a coastal walk and were taught about different sea defences (photos can been seen in the slideshow below). Eddie said, "It was the prettiest view ever!" Walking from Dell Quay to the marina.
Please bring in a named plastic water bottle every day. These can be kept in the classroom or in your bag. It is really important that you have enough water, especially in the Summer term.
PE days: During the Summer term our PE days will be as follows...
Monday afternoons- please have indoor and outdoor PE kit in school on Mondays.
Wednesday mornings - we have swimming.
Please be ready to leave straight after the register on Wednesdays.
It would be good if you brought in an extra snack to eat (back at school, after
swimming) and please pack a named plastic water bottle in your swimming bag.
