Year 5 Spring Term Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

After a packed last couple of weeks at school, I hope that you all had a restful and happy Christmas and that your children are looking forward to being back in school and starting the new term with enthusiasm.

The children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 performed fantastically in their nativity show at the end of last term, they all joined together to make a great end to our Autumn term. There was plenty of talent to be seen at the first “Holbrook’s Got Talent Show” too and those who performed did so with enthusiasm. Well done to all of those who took part, you impressed everyone watching.

There is plenty of other talent on show around the school as well; the Year 2 NASA space buggies in the library and the Year 6 clay faces art gallery demonstrate the wide range of talents which your children impress us with on a day to day basis.

This term, we look forward to welcoming another Olympic athlete to inspire the children and some cross School activities with our Federated school, Bedenham. Look out for more details in your child’s Year group blog.

Happy New Year to you!

Mrs Zoë Dudley                                                                    Mrs Tracy Potter

Hello all, we hope you are ready for a great new half term in Year 5!  It may be a very short one, but we have jam packed it with great learning opportunities!

In English this half term we will be exploring film narrative and poetry.  We don’t want to give too much away, so we are going to be keeping the titles of our work a secret!  Shhhhh

In maths we will be continuing to explore number and place value.  Did you know that Miss Price and Mrs Ruchat won the lottery over the Christmas break (we wish) and you will be helping us to spend some of it wisely!

We can’t wait to teach you all about Earth and Space in science.  It is a fantastic unit where we will learn all about the stars and planets.  Get ready to show off your fantastic writing skills in your science books.

We will also be composing our own musical scores in relation to the film narrative that we will be studying in English.

PE is out side this term, so please make sure you bring in a warm tracksuit and trainers.  Then we will be nice and toasty whilst running around.

Looking forward to seeing you all this term and having lots of fun!
