Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.
Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning.
All children are expected to read regularly every week; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets. When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house. Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.

St Cecilia - Class Blog - 3rd February 2017
We are St Cecilia, one half of year 5 at St Peters, and so far have had a very busy term following the excitement of Christmas.
In Maths, we are currently developing our knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages and have recently completed work on multiplication and division involving measurements.
Our new book in English is the brilliantly written, ‘The Nowhere Emporium’, a fantasy story involving time travel, magic and...well, I shall say no more so as not to spoil the rest of the story! We have used this fantastically imaginative novel to create descriptions of a range of magical items and settings plus instructions for potion making, even allowing the opportunity for a taste of candy floss.
Our current topic for History and DT is the Anglo-Saxons which is involving making models of a typical village house – thank you for the card and straw contributions! Alongside this, the children are enjoying discovering about typical daily life, approximately 1600 years ago, and are seemingly grateful they don’t have to complete the hard manual tasks that children of their age were required to do.
Science this term is full of a range of different experiments to test the properties of materials, allowing for lots of investigations to take place. In addition, we have also been fortunate enough to take part in the BBC’s ‘live experiment’ series, linked to food colouring and taste buds.
In Music, the children are learning to play the ukulele and are perfecting their gymnastic abilities each week in PE. Completing this term’s topics is Sikhism in RE. The children were lucky to have their curiosity and enjoyment of this topic supported by a visit from Mr Singh, a local Sikh, who gave an engaging, first hand insight into his religion.
Overall, a very busy and exciting few weeks with still one more to go!
