Year 5 - Aldenham

Weekly Update (14.06.19)


In Aldenham this week, the children have finished off their chapter on measuring and identifying angles and moved on to converting measurements in maths. In English we have looked at how to write a formal letter in order to write our letter to Donald Trump about climate change and greenhouse gases, using the information that we have been learning in topic lessons. Children have also started learning the words to the songs in the UKS2 production 'We Go Together'. Children have all been given a lyric book for them to learn the words from but it is their responsibility to not lose it as they will not be replaced.

Our current art project will revolve around collages of endangered animals, using food wrappers, such as crisp packets and sweet wrappers. Please could children collect such items and bring them in at the beginning of the week as we will be starting our art project on Thursday 20th June. Please do not sent in milk bottles, cardboard etc, we need paper/plastic type wrappers to create a collage with.

We have also began preparations for our class assembly on Thursday 27th June. I look forward to seeing you all there. I hope you have a lovely weekend
