Year 5 Kidsafe Group
Throughout October year 5 have had their Kidsafe training. They have gained lots of skills in how to keep themselves safe in many ways including bullying and peer pressure.
The children shared experiences and helped KS solve a lot of his problems. Everyone in the group contributed during the sessions and will always remember the three main messages of Kidsafe:
TELL A TRUSTED GROWN UP
Well done to you all.
We are ROCKING in KS2!!
We are signed up to and have our login details for Times Tables Rockstars which is a really fun way of practicing our times tables. The children have a letter about logging in and their username and password stuck on the front of their reading record. If you click on the link below you will be able to get started.

Part of homework every week is to go on Rockstars, have fun and get faster at your times tables. Mrs Murray can see who has been playing so watch out!

Strive for 5 - read 5 times a week and get AN ADULT to listen to you and sign your planner
Times table practice - show me that you have practiced in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be ready to show off your skills in the weekly test on Friday
Spelling practice - show me that you have practiced your words in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be able to spell your words easily on the test on Friday. remember I love to see your pictures which include your spelling words wrote over and over again inside of them.
Year 6 will have other homework which will change each week depending if we are focusing on maths, punctuation and grammar or comprehension skills.
Remember you will be rewarded for completing your homework AND striving for 5
Our new class book is The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher
The Christmasaurus is a story about a boy named William Trundle, and a dinosaur, the Christmasaurus. It's about how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure. It's about friendship and families, sleigh bells and Santa, singing elves and flying reindeer, music and magic. It's about discovering your heart's true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible.
