Welcome to 5CR
A Message from Mrs Carthey and Mrs Rose
Happy Half Term Everyone!
We will not be setting daily learning tasks this week but we have collected a couple of craft activities that you may like to have a go at. Daily learning tasks will start again next Monday.
Have a lovely half term and we hope you are all safe and well.
Please do email us on Y5CR@pelsallvillage.co.uk if you have any questions or would like to share your learning with us. We miss you! Stay safe!
Mrs Carthey and Mrs Rose
VE DAY ART COMPETITION
What a lovely way to think about VE Day. Over the coming days, design a piece of art based on the 75th VE Day anniversary. Have a look at the document below for more information and for examples.
Every entry will receive a special VE day pin badge and the winning entry from each year group (Nursery – Y6) will receive a £20 voucher to spend on yourself.

Here is a message from him:
So I decided to post a draw-along video every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am GMT that parents could watch with their kids and, hopefully, make some nice pictures. Here they all are. Feel free to watch and share them with anybody and everybody. I’d love to see the results, so please send me your pictures on social media using the hashtag. #DrawWithRob

Dojo of the Week- Poppy
This half term, our PE sessions are on a Wednesday where the children will be going SWIMMING (they will need full PE kit each week) and a Thursday. We ask that full PE kit is needed in school all week in case we have extra activities outside. These can be kept in individual lockers.
MATHS - every Thursday, our CLICs, Beat That and SAFE challenges will come home. Please go through these sheets with your child, identifying successful areas and go through the questions that were incorrect. They may write on these sheets and do any extra questions to support these areas.
READING - please read with your child as much as you can and discuss what they have read. The aim is to read at least 1 whole book each week.
PROJECT HOME LEARNING - In the yellow project books, complete some project work based on the topic your child is studying. Use the mindmap at the front of the book with ideas and bring your book back at the end of the half term or term.
Each week, we will be learning some topic based words. Use your spelling booklet to learn these words and they will be tested every Thursday!
