Reading and spelling

 Please encourage your children to read as much as possible at home to an adult and record notes in the Reading log.  Spellings should be practised as much as possible as well please. 







Welcome to Summer 2 !


I can't believe we are in Summer 2 already- where has the year gone?! I hope you had a lovely half term and the children enjoyed lots of time to play outside and have some fun. It will be a very busy half term coming up- lots more work to do, lots of fun with sports afternoon, Year 6 transition activities, soup making etc etc..! Please continue to support your child with reading and spellings at home. We are having a focus on our mental maths skills so lots of times tables practice would be really useful too! Don't forget Purple Mash, Sum dog and Times Tables rockstar can all be used to help with these. 


Thank you for your continued support- Mrs Cooper smiley

In Year 5 this week we did our Christmas play and it was all about The Miracle in town.


On Monday we are having our auditions for our St Philips got talent Christmas edition and I bet everyone's looking forward to it.


This week in R.E we were tasting Christmas foods from around the world- some were delicious ~(especially Tabssum's Mums samosas!) ! We didn't like some of them though ! We gave them marks out of 5 and thought about why they had these different types of food.


In Science we made boats and raced them in a tub of water! It was great fun to see whose boat was the quickest, whose went backwards and whose didn't go anywhere!

This week we have done lots of fun activities we did Art: It was so much fun we sketched some apples and everyones was amazing! We used all types of colours like red,orange,yellow and green.


In English we designed our own adverts at the start -we picked three things, a place, a key word and an audience it was so fun! In maths we have done multiplication and subtraction with decimals! It sounds really hard but it is quite easy if you try!

We want to say thank you to God.

Class Worship - Wednesday 26th September 2017

Thank you to Ruby, Morgan, Ben ands Syd for leading our class worship this week. They performed the story of Jonah and the Whale and we learned that we should listen to what God asks us to do and obey him. At the end of the story, the people of Ninevah have turned to God from their evil ways and been saved from destruction and we saw that God loves the people he has made. It was great to welcome some of the worship leaders' parents to watch their children perform. Here are some photo's for you to enjoy! We hope you can pop in when your children are leading class worship. We'll let you know when that will be.
