The children have worked hard in Maths and calculated percentages and started to solve word problems!  Next week is problem-solving week so they should enjoy working out the Maths Challenges …

We have completed the English Unit on Greek Myths, culminating in the children writing one of their own.

We wish Bon Voyage to those Year 5 children going to France tomorrow and we hope the weather is good for the rest of us on our walk to Merry Hill.

Thank you to the volunteers who have offered to walk with the class on 9th and 23rd June.  I will confirm volunteers for 27th June when all the reply slips for Knebworth House have been received.

It was lovely to go to the garden on Wednesday afternoon in the sunshine and enjoy being outside.  In English, we are continuing to read the Greek Myths and we wrote a character description of Perseus today.  In Maths, we have been solving word problems.

Mrs Pace and Mrs Doonan visited the class for a brief circle time to discuss and fully explain the Behaviour Policy ;and to remind all children that unacceptable behaviour  results in consequences.

Please remember to return reply slips for the walks on 9th June and 23r June (I am aware the majority of Year 5 children are going to France on the 9th).
