Welcome to the second half of the Autumn term 2019 at Englefield and here on the Year 5 and 6 pages is where we hope you will find all that you need.
We began this term with the topic of WHY DO LIVING THINGS ADAPT? This was a fascinating area of learning and we covered aspects of both history and geography within this topic. We are now moving on to see WHERE ON EARTH ARE WE? which should also present some interesting learning.
The class will have P.E. with Mr Chard on Mondays and with myself on Tuesdays. As the cooler weather begins dark, plain tracksuits need to be in school so outdoor P.E. can continue. Please make sure your child has an alternative jumper to wear for P.E. sessions. As girls move into winter uniform and tights please make sure they have a pair of socks with their P.E. kit. Please also make sure all kit is named. Occasionally the timetable needs to be changed so it is helpful if kit is in all week. As tournaments arise there might be other practices during the week too.
Our new shared learning grid is for this term leading up to Christmas. We look forward to giving your child the chance to share this learning on a weekly basis.
We try to make the field available at playtimes for as long as possible so please make sure your child is equipped with 'overs' and trainers. A carrier bag left on their peg is a helpful storage place for 'overs' too.
If you are able to come in and hear readers or play maths games with a small group please contact me or contact the office.
P.E. kit should be brought to school each Monday and be taken home each Friday. This means that P.E. kit is in school every day. Timetabled P.E. in Year 5 & 6 is on Monday and Tuesday but this is subject to change due to factors such as the weather, visits by external sports specialists and upcoming competitions.
The correct P.E. kit is:
a school games polo shirt; navy blue shorts; trainers for outdoor games. ( Girls - remember to pack a pair of socks when you mare wearing tights.)
Tracksuit bottoms and top, preferably in plain dark colours (for cold weather only).
