The first book that we will be using cross-curricularly is the poetry picture book 'Tree' by Britta Teckentrup, a German illustrator, author and fine artist.

The children had the opportunity to make their own artist-inspired peep-through poetry books.

Art continued with using watercolours to create seasonal colour palettes.

With this term being all about 'Heroes & Heroines', what better explorer to begin studying than Sir Ernest Shackleton? The children will be using the book 'Shackleton's Journey' to expand upon the term's theme. We will be enjoying geography, science, art and history as our Foundation subjects to accompany literacy, reading & maths (as well as Philosophy 4 Children).


PE continues to be on a Wednesday afternoon. Children should continue to bring in full school PE kit.

Homework continues to be handed out on Friday and due on Wednesday

Spellings have been handed out at the beginning of term but can also be found at the bottom of this page.

Grit: Year 5 China have been learning about what it takes to show true grit (perserverance + resilience) in the face of challenging learning situations. Mr E has decided to attempt to lead by example and tackle his old foe, the French language! As the children continue to show incredible grit when tackling new and/or difficult subject areas, Mr E will be also attempting to tackle French. Hopefully he'll make it through...
