Our Year 5 Staff:

Mr M Stewart – Teacher

Mrs L Walker – Teaching Assistant

What a great second week we’ve had in year 5.

Our topic – Asian Adventures – is well in flow and the children are enjoying learning about the countries which make up the largest continent in the world.

In maths this week we’ve ordered and compared the sizes of countries within Asia developing our place value skills.

This week was our last swimming session at Sandhill View Academy. From next week, we will transfer to the Puma Centre with a change of day – swimming will now take place on a Tuesday.

Our certificate winner, who got a dip in the box in assembly, this week is:

Alfie for his fantastic effort and attitude in maths.

Our hand writer of the week this week is:

Hudson for his fantastic presentation in all learning.

Attendance: 94.6%

Our attendance target for school is 96%. Unfortunately this week we’ve fallen short of our 96% target. Lets work together to improve this next week!

Upcoming events and reminders

Please remember to send swimming kits in every Tuesday. Swimming is part of the PE curriculum in year 5 which is a legal requirement in all primary and secondary schools in England.

Clubs continue to run this half term. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so ASAP!

On Friday it’s our Macmillan coffee afternoon. Please come to the main hall for 1.30pm to enjoy coffee, cake and raise money for a fantastic cause! Children can be collected from their normal entrance / exit doors from 1.20pm.

Welcome to our first Year 5 blog of the school year.

We’ve been particularly busy this week settling into our new classroom (and making it our own), deciding on our new school councillors, Playground Buddies and getting to know each other again after the summer break. Early indications show it’s going to be a great year in year 5!

We had our first swimming lesson at Sandhill View Academy on Thursday which went very well. Everyone who attended enjoyed getting into the water and showing off their swimming skills! We even enjoyed the walk there and back!

Our certificate winner, who got a dip in the box in assembly, this week is:

Delta for her fantastic start and attitude to year 5.

Our golden book stars this week are:

Bailey, for his super effort in swimming and Hudson for giving 100% in every lesson.

Our hand writer of the week this week is:

Ellie for her fantastic presentation.

Attendance: 96.1%

Our attendance target for school is 96%. I’m delighted to say we have achieved our target this week with an attendance of 96.1%

Lateness: 9 minutes lateness this week.

Please remember school starts at 8.50. The children begin learning straight away, so even a few minutes lateness has an effect on education!

Upcoming events and reminders

Please remember to send swimming kits in every Thursday. Swimming is part of the PE curriculum in year 5 which is a legal requirement in all primary and secondary schools in England.

Sandhill View Academy have their open evening on Monday 18th September at 6.00pm. All children in years 5 and 6 who will be attending Sandhill View are welcome to attend with their families.

Clubs start from Monday in school. You will have received a letter this afternoon which share details and booking information.
