Welcome to Orangutans with Mrs Ferguson and Mrs Schofield.
This half-term our topic is A Civilised Bunch.
All of our reading, writing and history is based around ancient civilisations: the Ancient Egyptians, Indus Valley, Sumer and Shang Dynasty.
On the first day back, the teachers became experts in each civilisation and persuaded the children that their civilisation was the best.
On Monday 21st January we will be having an Egyptian day where the children will be dressing up and we will be having visitors into school.
In science, we are learning about circulation and we will be having a science morning in a few weeks where the children will get to explore blood, the heart and lungs.
Homework - We will now be setting Maths and English homework on Monday's and it must be handed in on Monday too. We will mark it in class together. Copies can be found in the year 5 information page.
