Glass Works Trip
What an amazing first full week at school for Year 5! The children have settled in well and are working hard. This week we went on a trip to the Glass Works in Chatteris. The children got see a peacock tumbler being made by Stewart Hearn and ask him lots of questions relating to our topic Materials. They were able to see what materials are used in making glass and how these are changed during the process.
We hope that you all had a great summer and are now raring to get back to school!
The first topic for this term is Materials. During this unit, we will be looking at lots of different materials and doing lots of science. We have an entry point booked for next week which, I guarantee, you will be impressed with.
Reading is a key focus this year and it is important that reading takes place both in and out of school. We all need to be reading fluently, with an average speed of 90 words per minute. We also ask that the children read a variety of different texts as this will ensure that they are familiar with a range of books and styles.
We will continue to use Maths Whizz in school. You will be expected to complete at least an hour a week, with half an hour being provided in school. This will be checked each Monday morning. For those who don’t have access at home, we will continue to provide clubs both after school and at lunchtimes.
