Guillemots - Ms Harvey
Year 5 / 6
Welcome to Guillemots Class!
Happy New Year! I do hope you and your families have had a peaceful and joyous festive season.
We are straight back into work, finishing off a science experiment as soon as the children got back! We are doing two more Science units this term, one regarding Forces, the next one, in March, all about light and vision. Our topic this term for the whole school is ‘Time Travel’, and we will be linking that with our science and another project which is a bit of a surprise! More to come in a few weeks.
The Year 6 children will be doing a fair bit of revision, with the Year 5s joining with the rest of KS2 to work on an Easter production.
We will be doing booster sessions within school, but also hope to offer some after school sessions for those who may need some more help.
There will be an opportunity to come in and see what the children have been up to on Friday 9th February, right before the half term. I will provide more details regarding times at a later date.
We will be holding a Kingswood and SATs after school session soon, please do not forget that we need the balance of your Kingswood payment in very soon, if you would like to pay it in smaller but more frequent increments, please do so via the office. The Year 5s have a trip to the Kinesis centre planned with the rest of Year 5, again details to follow.
Swimming for some starts on Monday, you should have received a letter already. Please ensure your child has PE kit every day and swimming kit if required. Please also encourage your child to get homework completed. We will be sending home revision sheets this term, which will also benefit the Year 5s. Please try to mark these with your children, we will then double check and support gaps in knowledge; homework should now be handed back on a Thursday. Spelling tests will be on a Wednesday with Miss Roberts from now on.
We have lots to look forward to again this term. I hope the children are ready to focus on their targets but also engage in some exciting projects. As always, I am available for a quick chat if you need it.
With best wishes,
