Welcome to Giraffe class. The children have settled in well into Year 5 and it has been a great start!

This half term our history learning is focussing on the Tudors. Our key question, that we will answering at the end of the unit, is ‘how have the Tudors impacted Hampshire?’ We are developing our understanding of the Tudor period and how this changed life today.

Have a look at our knowledge organiser for this half term.

Values: The value that we are concentrating on this half term is respect. Who will be our champion? We need to continue to demonstrate our other values: Self-regulation, Focus, Boundaries, Resilience and Independence. We are celebrating our in-class achievements using Class Dojo. As a class, we need to work together to achieve our class stars. Remember to share with us any ‘Outside School Achievements’ as we love to hear about them and we will celebrate these in school!

A menu of homework choices (that are cross curricular) have been given out in pupils’ homework books- a minimum of 3 pieces need to be handed in at the end of this half term please. Also, please try to ensure that an adult at home reads for a few minutes each day with your child as this will hugely improve the quality of their learning in all subject areas. Your child will bring home a sharing book and either a Little Wandle or book banded book.

PE: This half term, Year 5 have PE on Monday and Thursday. PE kits needs to be in school on these day but it is recommended that it stays in school all week. Correct kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or dark shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. Longer hair needs to be tied up and earrings removed or covered.

Many thanks,

Mrs Black, Mr Barnes and Miss Jones.
