Guillemots - Ms Harvey
Year 5 / 6
Welcome to Guillemots Class!
Welcome back to school. I trust you and your families had a lovely break.
We are straight back into work, preparing for the SATs in just four weeks’ time. The year 5s are working on a pond project with Mrs Staff and her group during intensive SATs sessions, but otherwise being challenged within class with the Year 6s. We will continue with Science for the next few weeks and the children will have Art and PE with Miss Hutchinson.
Please make sure the correct PE is in school every day, as we may well fit in extra PE sessions from time to time.
On Tuesday 24th our Year 6s will go to the Fire Station to take part in Crucial Crew, which is an interactive safety initiative set up by a large group of different ages. The Year 5s will spend the day with Mr. Prior. On Thursday again, the Year 5s and a couple of Year 6s will go with Mr. Prior and Oystercatchers on their river trip and Miss Hutchinson will be taking ten boys to a football competition.
SATs week is Monday 14th May until Thursday 17th May. During this week, the Year 5s will be with Mr. Prior in our classroom, we will be decamped to various places around the school. It is hugely important during that week that the children have a restful time at home, including the weekend before, and eat lots of good brain food! (Fish and spinach?)
Once the SATs are over, we will still be doing lots of learning, but will have more of an opportunity to do Art, Drama, French etc. The children have decided to do something a little different for our end of year show this year, more to follow!!
If your child has an MP3, please could you make an appointment with the office to see me for a review.
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,
