Hello 5SW! 


We are now into week 5 of our Autumn term and you have really settled in well and are making great progress in your lessons.  We have started 'addition and subtraction' in our new maths sets and are working hard to plug the gaps in your grammar and punctuation in English sets. 


In Science, we have made our parachutes and we will be testing our parachutes to investigate how the surface area of parachutes affects air resistance.  Your designs for an Anglo-Saxon village are looking impressive and you are now ready to start creating your Anglo-Saxon wall hanging in your next DT lesson.........this is all very exciting stuff! 


Remember to read your own book for 15 minutes every night and complete your reading record to earn your Epraise reading points.


 Keep up the great work, 5SW   


Important information


Don't forget we have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays so you'll need to wear your PE kit to school on those days.
