Religious Education





Yr 5's Literacy wk commencing 24th April 

 We are focusing on the text 'Pig Heart Boy'. 

This week we will be looking at using a variety of parenthesis, varying our sentence structure, using connectives, writing from a point of view and creating a balanced argument. 


Yr 5's




This week the spelling rule for Miss Stell's set is:

The prefixes in- and re-

invisible, incoherent, reappear etc


This week (Jan 2017) the spelling rule for Mr Moon's and Mr Ridd's set is:

Words ending –able or –ible (-ibly/-ably)

For example:

possibly, incredibly, comfortable, capable, possible, terrible, horrible, workable

As a general rule, words that are complete words already add 'able': comfort --> comfortable

whereas words that are incomplete add 'ible' : poss ---> possible


PE days 2016/2017 - Tuesday and Thursday

Please can children have correct PE kit in school for these days. White t-shirt, blue or black shorts and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.  I am more than happy for children to wear jogging bottoms for outdoor PE when it is cold, but please can these be dark and plain.


Children will need to tie their hair back and ALL jewellery must be removed (earrings may be covered with tape)


Cycle training - Every Wednesday afternoon (individual emails will go out to remind you).




Our class assembly is this Friday 14th October at 9.00am!
