The Beetles have made a fabulous start to their time in Year 5. I have been very impressed by their hard work and enthusiasm. It has been lovely to hear about what they have been up to over the summer and to see them welcoming Clara into our class.

On Thursday we talked about what had been the best things about the week – a different classroom and different teachers were mentioned lots but also our credit reward system, playing fizz buzz, our maths work and thinking about how our brains work, having a new start, taking on responsibility and laughing.

On Tuesday I sent home our class newsletter – a copy can be accessed below as well as our learning jigsaw.
