Y5 have been busy over the last few weeks preparing for their future roles and responsibilities as Y6 in September. They have been very excited about finding out who they are to buddy and have written lovely letters of introduction, which were hand delivered at the New Starter Coffee Morning by Miss Silvester. They have also been writing letters of application to Mrs Casserley, so that she can determine who will be the right person for the varied key roles and responsibilities in Y6.

The class worked with focus and commitment in the recent end of year assessments, which will be shared with you in the Annual Reports.

Maddie, Orlanda, Izzy and Harvey did a fantastic stint as presenters on Red Shift Radio. We hope you were able to tune in.

Our learning has focussed on city states in Ancient Greece, over the past few weeks. The children were put into three groups representing Athens, Sparta and Corinth and under the leadership of Matthew, Megan and Tom came up with a set of key questions about their city state to research. They have been responsible for all their own work from question through research to presentation outcome, now on display in class.

We have had good fun predicting and investigating which material would muffle my phone alarm the best as part of our science work on sound! They were surprised that cling film came out top!

Our new literacy focus is based on myths and legends. The children thoroughly enjoyed creating their own mythological creature and choosing its name in readiness for writing it into a quest as part of our story writing.

The children have been working on multiplication (TUxTU, HTU X U, HTU X HTU) and multiplication with a decimal eg 0.9 x 4 , 2.6 x 3 in numeracy. They have loved investigating using the numicon resource we now have in school to find calculations that would give a product of 2.4, 3.6, 4.8 etc.We will be moving onto to negative and positive numbers next.

Sport is very much in focus at the moment beyond the Wednesday afternoon lessons. Congratulations to Grace and Keelie and Tom for being Sportscape Sport Stars of the Week over the last few weeks.
We're very much looking forward to the annual Townsports competition and wish our school team but particularly our Y5 'good luck' on Monday night and Wednesday night. We will be supporting KS1 as they enjoy their sports day at the beginning of this week and we will hopefully have good weather for ours mid-week.

We have been allocated England, Germany, Ivory Coast and Nigeria as the Y5 World Cup Teams to follow during this exciting tournament. Sadly England are out but we're pinning our hopes on our remaining 3 teams to win the school's World Cup!

We have a forth coming visit to Shavington High School for a science workshop organised by 'Air Products' — It is a free event and transport is provided. Confirmation slips need to be returned before the event — thank you.

Do look out for news about our Study Work Sharing afternoon, later this term too.
