As part of our healthy schools initiative, Year 5 children will be dropping their pencils at 12 o’clock each day and running around a pre-prepared course to improve their stamina and general wellbeing. Swimming has finished for most but we do have Jimmy ‘Jumpshot’, our American basketball coach, coming in to work with us on Monday afternoons. Please ensure your child has full PE in school for these sessions.
The children are doing a fantastic job earning their stars towards their badges and reading at home at least 3 times a week is helping them reach their reading rewards too.Keep up the hard work!
We hope you have had an enjoyable half term and are eager to go for our next topic. Over the next six weeks, we will be exploring the work of William Shakespeare, most notably ‘Macbeth’. We will launch by participating in Highland Games and creating art around the three witches of Macbeth. Towards the end of our topic (4th April), we will visit a local theatre for a backstage tour.
As part of our half term, we will be joining the rest of the school for ‘Shakespeare Week’, delving into the tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to develop our literacy skills. We look forward to seeing the shared reading projects you have been working on at home. These will be celebrated in school on Monday 7th March at our reading café (running until 4:30).
