Although a little shorter than last term, Spring term will no doubt be as packed as Autumn!
This term's topic is "Lights, Camera, Action!" focussed around Shakespearean times but also looking at more recent work.
Our Christian value this term is Courage.
Year 5's theme is to celebrate the 85th birthday of Dame Mary Quant

Fortnightly maths test
The following website has lots of useful maths information for parents and children alike:
Please practise daily - ask them about some of the spellings tips and activities they have been learning at school!
Please ensure that reading is taking place daily. It is vitally important for your children to read.
If they would like to qualify for a reading badge, they will need to read four times a week for the entire term. I will only know if they have completed this task if you sign their partnership books. The 'LF' stamp in their planner indicates that they've met the criterion for the week.

Thomas & Joe - both for outstanding improvement in times table challenge and increased confidence in maths in general.
