This year we plan to focus on...
- Reading for pleasure – sharing book tips with our friends and discovering new favourite writers.

- Becoming more resilient by taking risks with our learning – both inside and outside the classroom (e.g. through drama or school trips).
- Reflecting on our work and learning from our mistakes (FAIL = First Attempt In Learning!).
- Improving our handwriting.
- P.E days – Wednesday and Thursday. On these days, children will need to come to school in their PE kits (including suitable footwear) and will stay in their kits all day. They may also wear a school jumper or Rufford Park hoodie. Please ensure your child has removed earrings/jewellery before school or can do so independently before P.E lessons.
- Reading book changing – School reading books will be collected in on a Friday and new books issued on a Monday. Due to Covid, books cannot be changed at other times.
- Spellings – Spellings will be given on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday.
- Y5 expectations – Please ensure your child reads regularly and practices their spellings weekly.
- Homework - This will be issued on a Friday and returned the following Wednesday.
Year 5 Oak enjoying the new trim trail!
Friday 23rd October
In P.E, the children have had lots of fun developing their tag rugby skills and playing matches!
Year 5 Oak have had a super start to the year.
In science, the children have had lots of fun making their own periscope, a simple device that uses mirrors to reflect images through a tube. Light from a distant object strikes the top mirror and is then reflected at an angle of 45 degrees down the periscope tube. At the bottom of the periscope, the light strikes another mirror and is then reflected into the viewer's eye.
