Our Current Theme!
Greece is the Word
A new school year finds us with a new theme, and this term our theme is Greece is the Word. This will remain for the whole of the Autumn Term. It is a History based theme on the Greeks as you have probably guessed!
This term we have been reading The Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. We have been looking in depth at the book and have completed lots of different reading activities. Here are some of your comic strips which retell part of the story.
Just a few reminders
Children will have a PE session every Wednesday with our sports coach and on a Thursday afternoon so please ensure that children have PE kit in school at all times.
At certain points in the year, children will be participating in 'Outdoor learning' and will be required to have suitable clothing for this activity. Children will be reminded of this when it is needed!

Important dates for Cedar Class!
For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday. Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.
Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. :)
Word Wonder Wall
In addition to this, (in class) we have a weekly spelling challenge in Upper School, where the children are challenged to learn an additional five words taken from the Year 5/6 Spelling List which will be on our Word Wonder Wall. These are all tricky words and, so far, the children are doing a great job in challenging themselves. If they get 5 out of 5, on 3 separate occasions, the children will get a dip in my goody bag!
