Dear Endeavour Class,
This week will be starting new subjects and thinking about our new topic - Battles. In maths our focus is place value. Alongside this we will be learning the skills and questions needed for problem solving in maths. This will help with reasoning and opportunities for talk, with explanation and discussion in partners and in groups.
P.E. kit will need to be worn on Mondays for everyone and for Year 6 on Wednesdays. If your child is in Year 5, then they will be doing 'Forest Schools' on a Wednesday afternoon. As such, they will need to bring in clothes appropriate for outdoor learning. Year 5s are to wear normal school uniform on Wednesday mornings and change into outdoor clothes for the afternoon session. Year 5s have already been sent a kit list of suggested outdoor wear previously, along with a permission letter. If you have not already done so, please complete the permission slip and return to class as soon as possible. Forest School starts on the 9th September.
Spellings will be sent home this week to be tested next week. Maths homework will start soon and will need to be returned on a Thursday. Please see the curriculum newsletter for more details.
