Hello Class 5!

So, class 5, we have two more weeks to go of term to go! You've done brilliantly, all of you, and we want you to keep up the brilliance for just a little bit longer! . As we said last week, if you can continue with the maths and literacy, that's great!  However, the key thing is to keep occupied, and we have a few things to help keep you busy and stimulated this, and next week. We are also offering you the opportunity to take part in a very exciting initiative too so read on and find out more below!

 

Mrs B is there for you, as are we, if you need support so do email us with any questions and/or if you fancy a phone call/video chat. 

 

Here is a reminder of your maths and Literacy choices:

Maths:

Complete the daily White Rose lesson, first watching the video and then completing the worksheets. Remember to mark your work and learn from your mistakes :)

Option A: Hamilton Literacy lesson every day.

Option B: Over the course of the week, complete 3 SPaG mats, the "WORD OF THE DAY" activity and 1 - 2 writing tasks (these will change each week - try to choose things that you're interested in.

BUDDY LETTERS WRITING TASK

Try to get those buddy letters to Mrs B or ourselves - there are a few outstanding and Miss Goodchild really wants to share them with your little buddies asap!

FOREST GREEN ROVERS APPLICATION! Open to all year 5 pupils!

Are you passionate about football? Are you an advocate of "green living"? Are you confident at sharing information with others (being a public speaker)? Are you a positive role model at school?

If so, this exciting opportunity might appeal to you!

Forest Green Rovers are looking to recruit a year 6 " FGR ambassador"  from the British School. The role of the FGR ambassador is to promote the club and share with others how the club works. FGR is run in a very environmentally-friendly way - the footballers are said to live, breathe and work sustainably - and the ambassador will learn all about this and promote the values of sustainability. The ambassador will also have the opportunity to 

  • receive a free season ticket
  • be invited on the pitch to lead out the team with other ambassadors before a game.
  • invite a player into their school to talk about their career, role models, and the importance for hard work and dedication.

Further details of the role and FGR can be found by clicking on the link below:

https://www.fgr.co.uk/we-are-fgr/ambassadors-scheme 

 

If this sounds like something you would LOVE to do, we are asking you to write an application, in which you should tell us in as much detail as you can (a minimum od 20 sentences):
  • why you want the role 
  • why you think you are the right person for the role
  • how you will share what you do with children and staff at school, if you were to be given the role
  • why you think the ambassador role is important and worthwhile

And remember to give your application an appropriate title, to write neatly and clearly, using interesting vocabularly and well-structured sentences and to check your spellings! 

 

Email Mrs B or us your completed applications! Good luck!

p.s. You might have remarked that we are indoors together in our video. Don't worry - we were very careful! We kept a gap between us, had windows open to ventilate the room, washed our hands, didn't share devices and wiped surfaces down afterwards. As teachers, we have obviously had to work in school together throughout lockdown but we always ensure we take sensible precautions and adhere to government guidelines for schools. 

Hello from Mrs Amigoni and Mrs Smith
