All The World’s A Stage!


Welcome to an exciting Year 5! Many thanks to all of the parents who came to our New to Year 5.meeting on Monday 17th September; those who were unable to make this meeting can look at the PowerPoint presentation we used by following the link above. This tells you all of the important information which we feel you need to know at the start of term: days on which we do PE etc.

Although our topic this half term is based on the Rainforest (we will be looking at the question Is The Amazon Indispensable?), much of this term will be taken up with the exciting opportunity presented by the Shakespeare for Schools Festival . This will involve both classes putting on a 30 minute version of a Shakespeare play on Tuesday 13th November at 7.00 pm. Prior to this, we will have the afternoon to rehearse at the Mumford Theatre. We will be sharing the evening with Meridian Primary who will also be performing. We will let parents know about ticketing for this event as soon as possible – please note that we have a limited number of tickets available and expect to be able to offer approximately two tickets per child.

We will also be visiting the Mumford Theatre on Tuesday 25th September to attend drama workshops – many thanks to the parents who have volunteered to come!
