Weekly News

In Year 5, children are set same homework each week. We encourage everyone to spend quality time reading, learning spellings and practising times tables. On Monday, children will be given their weekly spellings to learn and will be tested on these on Friday mornings. The weekly times tables test will also take place on Fridays. Many children are now taking the 'Decimal Special' (e.g. 12 x 1.2 = 14.4   6 x 80 = 480) which is fantastic!

w/c 18.11.19

 

This week is 'Assessment Week' in KS2. Whilst some children might come home and inform you that they have been 'doing tests', it is nothing for the them to worry about. The assessments in English and maths inform us of the progress that the children have made to date as well as identifying what we need to focus on in the coming months.

 

Parents' evenings will take place next week (w/c 25th Nov). A letter will be sent home in the coming days with information about this.

 

Your child will be tested on their next five spellings on Friday morning. This week's times tables focus is '7x and 9x'. Many children are now taking the 'Decimal Special' test, which is fantastic!

 

We are always available before 8:50am and straight after school if you have any questions/queries or if you need to inform us of anything.

It was wonderful to see the children back in school last week. We were incredibly busy and the week ahead looks like being much the same. On Wednesday, the children will have their individual photographs taken in the morning. On Friday, we will do our bit to support Children in Need 2019. Please read the CiN newsletter (link below) for more information about this.

They say that time flies when you're having fun, so it comes as no surprise that the final week of the half-term has seemingly arrived rather suddenly! 

 

Last week, the children in Year 5 designed and constructed rockets that were 'launched' across the school field. Although some designs travelled further than others, all of the rockets flew a fair distance.

 

There is still time to contribute non-perishable food items that we will donate to the local church as part of our Harvest Festival celebrations. All of the children will spend some time in church on Friday morning to mark the festival. KS2 children will walk to the church and return to KWS before lunch.

 

Your child will be tested on their next five spellings on Friday morning. This week's times tables focus is again 'Mixed 1x - 12x'.

 

We are always available before 8:50am and straight after school if you have any questions/queries or if you need to inform us of anything.

 

If we do not see you around school this week, we wish you an enjoyable half-term break.

Last week was yet another busy one in Year 5. The children have written their own chapters based on 'The Twits', they have been focusing on 'ordering' numbers in maths and we learned all about the different phases of the Moon and why its appearance changes throughout the lunar month to name just a few things that we have been up to.

 

Thank you for those who have contributed to the collection of non-perishable foods for our Harvest Festival. All of the children will spend some time in church on the morning of Friday 18th October to mark the festival.

 

Your child will be tested on their next five spellings on Friday morning. This week's times tables focus is 'Mixed 1x - 12x'.

The weeks are well and truly flying by in Year 5. Last Wednesday, we celebrated all things Spanish as part of MFL Week. As well as learning some Spanish phrases, we also made and tasted a paella. Everyone tucked in and the food got the seal of approval from most of the children.

 

Your child will be tested on their next five spellings on Friday morning. 11x & 12x (mostly 12s!) are the focus for our times tables this week.

It was great to see those of you that were able to attend last week's 'Meet the Teacher' evening.

 

Last week's trip to the National Space Centre was fantastic. The children learned lots (and had lots of fun!) as well as being wonderful company and a credit to KWS. Photos of the day can be found on the Y5 page of the school website.

After completing our first full week, the summer feels very much a distant memory. The children are working incredibly hard in the classroom and have embraced life in upper-school.

 

Class 5L's first swimming lesson was cancelled on Tuesday as we were informed at very late notice that the pool was closed due to a 'chemical imbalance'. Hopefully there will be no such problems this week. I have uploaded a copy of Nottinghamshire County Council's 'School Swimming Guidance' on the Year 5 page of the school's website.

 

Your child will be tested on their next five spellings on Friday morning. 4x & 8x are the focus for our times tables this week.

 

On Wednesday, we are hosting a 'drop-in session' for our annual 'Meet the Teacher' evening. The Year 5 staff will be around until 5:30pm.

 

On Thursday, Year 5 visit the National Space Centre in Leicestershire. We aim to leave KWS at 8:30am. If all children could arrive at school for 8:20am, and go straight to their classroom, it will allow us to spend as much time as possible exploring the centre and learning lots about space!
