Years 5 & 6 Weekly Newsletters

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

This week, year 5/6 children have been looking at data within maths. We have focused on both collecting and representing data as well as interpreting data and graphs.  The children have been finalising their Shakespeare narratives, editing and peer editing their work to meet the Year 5/6 writing standards.

 

Key Stage Two Christmas Celebration – Tuesday, 12th December – 6pm to 7.30pm,

We hope you are looking forward to our Christmas celebration on Tuesday.  All places are now taken for this performance.  The children should wear their school uniform but might like to bring in tinsel and a festive headdress to wear.

 

Xmas Jumper Day – Thursday, 14th December

The School Council have arranged for children to be able to wear Christmas jumpers for the day.  These can be shop bought or home decorated.  Small donations welcome, which the School Council will use to arrange more fun whole school activities.  

 

Class party – Tuesday 12th December

We will be holding Christmas parties in Year 5/6 classes on Tuesday morning and are asking children to bring in board games to play on this day. No electronic items. 

 

A greener Christmas

Would you like to help us be a little greener this Christmas?  Instead of buying a box of cards for your child to give out in class we would like to suggest you donate this money to their Class Christmas Jar.  The children can write a message to their classmates on the Christmas Board in their class.  We plan to use the money to buy fruit trees and vegetable seeds for our allotment in the Forest School area.

 

Nethercott Farm Residential 2018

We have places available for this residential, if you are interested in taking this place please contact the school office for details.  You might like to look at Heatree’s website to see where they will be going and what they might be doing www.farmsforcitychildren.org/farms/nethercott/

 

Christmas Card Recycling

When we return to school in January, you can bring in your Christmas cards to be recycled.  We will place boxes on the KS2 landing, near the school office and outside the KS 1 classes. 

 

Lunch menu for next week is ‘Week One’. Please note, due to the school hall being in use, there is a menu change for Tuesday, 12th December – ‘fish fingers and chips, cucumber sticks and a cake in a bag’ that will be eaten in classrooms.
