This weeks SEAL ethos statement is, ‘it’s good to be me’.
What special qualities do you have that makes it good to be you. This could be anything from being helpful in school, being able to ice skate or your extreme enthusiasm for history.
I’d like you to respond via the comment tab and explain why it is good to be you!
Hi 5 Cedar!
I think it’d be really interesting to find out what you have enjoyed learning about so far in Year 5, and what you would like to know more about.
What have you enjoyed learning about so far?
Do you have anything in particular that you would like to learn about before the end of Victorians, Vampires and Villains?
This week in History, we have been learning about people who went about changing the atrocious conditions which children were working in during the Victorian era. Both Lord Shaftesbury and Dr. Barnardo vowed to help and support poor children especially those trapped in the workhouses.
Your homework this week is to pick one of these influential figures and write a short explanation as to why they were crucial in changing working conditions for children during the Victorian era.
Remember to check your spellings, grammar and punctuation.
I look forward to reading your work.
This month is the launch of Reading Month at Copthorne. There will be lots of exciting activities throughout March including World Book Day and Read-a-thon.
We want you to let us know about a book you just can’t put down or have read it so many times that the book is wearing out. You must explain why this is your favourite book.
Mr. Rizvi and Mr. Sandhu.
Dear Year 5,
We hope you are enjoying the half term holidays. We would love to know what exciting things you have been up to over the holidays. Even if it is just catching up with some much needed sleep or meeting old friends, we want to know.
Your task is to write a diary entry about a day in your holidays. Remember to check your spellings, punctuation and grammar.
Mr. Rizvi and Mr. Sandhu
We are always working hard to help you develop your learning in school. It would be very helpful if you could tell us about the kind of activities which you have most enjoyed over the last year.
Try to use your login details for the blog. If you can’t remember them, you can just type in the space below.
It would also be helpful if you could tell us about the kind of activities you would like to do in lessons this year. You might like to ask your parents for their ideas too!
Welcome to the Holiday Challenge for this October half term.
This time your challenge is to produce an inspiring piece of work on the theme: Autumn.
Autumn is such a wonderful time of year when all the leaves are turning those beautiful rich shades and covering the ground in a patchwork quilt of colours.
You can produce any piece of work – for example: poetry, writing, painting, collage, models, photos or films – within this theme. Please take your work to your class on the first day back after the holidays. Your teachers will have a good look at your work and some of you will be asked to bring it to show in Friday’s. I am so looking forward to seeing what you come up with as I know that, as usual, you will take this opportunity to show everyone your great skills.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to produce a piece of work on the theme: ‘Weather’.
You can work alone or with your family to create anything at all to do with that theme. It can be a story, a picture, a poem, a model, a photo story, a piece of film, a survey or piece of data – it is absolutely up to you! The important thing is that you will be able to follow your own interests and show your special skills and talents.
Work should be returned to your class teacher on the first day back after the holiday – in this case June 4th. I will then visit each class to see what you have done and we will celebrate the work in our next celebration assembly.
Remember – the challenge is voluntary and not a competition but I am hoping that lots of you will take part.
Enjoy your learning.
