GSO Test

'Success for all, in all we do'

Five's Fabulous First, Full Week

Wow? What a wonderful, whirlwind of a week it has been. We have both been extremely impressed by the students this week. They have all settled in to life in Year 5 with ease.

Thank you to all of you, parents and children, for making such a positive start to term and the new school year.  Thank you also for bearing with us as the arrival and dismissal arrangements have been tweaked to streamline things.  It is lovely to see the children arriving at 08:50 and get collected from 15:10.

Notes and Notices:

Maths Challenge

The children have been set a challenge to learn a rhyme about rounding numbers. Here is a poster to help them learn the rhyme.

Today the children were sent home with their brand new Topic Webs. These can be found electronically on the school website here:

Also today, all Year 5 children have been given their username and password to access their own Fircroft, Google Classroom account, which will be linked to lessons in class, home learning and other sessions over the course of the year. Spellings were sent home today and will be tested on Wednesday next week and formal Home Learning activities will begin on Friday 2nd October.
