Mrs Richards loves dancing, singing and a nice piece of cake!

Maybe you could help her by choreographing a 'Groovy Groove' to demonstrate in the class.

Welcome to Year 5

Welcome back and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! This week we will be starting our new literacy book (see below).  If you have a copy and would like to bring it in to school, that would be great!  This term we are going to be continuing our science topic on Forces, and starting a new Skills and Fieldword geography topic. In PE we will be doing gymnastics and circuit training.  As usual, we will be having music with Mr Birch on a Thursday - so don't forget your instrument!  I am looking forward to see you all on Tuesday.

Mrs Richards :-)

P.S.  Don't forget that we are going to Malbank High School on Thursday morning for the second Singfest rehearsal.  Wear sensible shoes and a waterproof coat.  Also bring a drink and a snack. :)
