Our Math’s work will involve us developing a deeper understanding of multiplication and division, in preparation for understanding and calculating fractions, decimals and percentages, we will also be using our problem-solving and reasoning skills to provide challenge.

5B will have PE, on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has their named PE kit at school at all times. The school rule is that no earrings are allowed to be worn during PE, therefore it would be appreciated if children remove their earrings before they come to school on PE days.

Some children have already created some splendid Viking models over the Christmas period, it would be great to see more of these creations, to add to our Viking display.

Children will be given one set of spellings each week and will be tested on Thursdays, sometimes through the use of dictation.
