Thank you to all the parents who were able to make parents evening over the last two evenings. If anyone has any further questions or queries do not hesitate to come and speak to me. Looking forward to our final week before half term, Skylarks will be looking at multi-step problems using their knowledge of addition and subtraction. The children will be planning their final write to plan and write a series of diaries about significant events in Annie Edson Taylor’s life.
The children will be going on their trip to the Lion Salt Works on Monday 21st October, they will need to wear their uniforms and will require coats.
Next Friday 25th October, it will be a non-uniform day and the children are asked to bring a bottle in for Friends Of Lostock.

The children in Skylarks have been working super hard this week with their rounding of numbers to estimate answers to addition and subtraction questions. We will be continuing the practice this skill next week. They have been working hard to plan a recount of Annie's journey from the top of the falls until she gets to the edge of the falls. They have begun to write the recount and will continue this into the new week.
As we look forward into the new week, parents' evenings will take place on Tuesday 15th October and Wednesday 16th October. Appointments have been sent home but if there are any problems please come and speak to me.
The book fair has arrived in school it is located in the year 5 classroom and will be here 3:15-4pm on the 10th, 11th and 14th of October and then 3:15-6pm on the 15th and 16th October.

Skylarks have had a fantastic week this week. I am extremely proud and pleased with the children's telling of the stone soup story at our harvest service. The children have completed some great maths work on place value this week and have made an excellent start to our new topic of addition and subtraction. The children have also written some great reports using different viewpoints about Annie Edson Taylor.
Looking forward to the new week:
Please come and share our KS2 come join with us event on the 9th October at 2pm. The children will be delving deeper into their understanding of addition and subtraction. We will be continuing to produce work based on our 'Queen of the Falls' book.
The children have been allocated their instruments this week and letters will be sent out in the next couple of weeks to give permission to take instruments home.

This week in Skylarks class we have produced some fantastic pieces of writing. We have been writing letters to Annie Edson Taylor telling her why she should and should not go down Niagara Falls in a barrel. Next week, we will be working towards creating a newspaper report announcing Annie's arrival to Niagara. The chidren have continued to work on their place value and will be looking more at negative numbers next week.

We had a great time at the go run for fun event at Moss Farm leisure centre. Looking into next week, we will continue to work on our place value skills in maths and we will be working on and completing letter writing to Annie Edson Taylor (from our class book ‘Queen of the falls’). The children will be taking part in our National fitness day on the 25th September. They will be working with Teresa in the morning and there is lots of activities ready for the children to take part in.
Our new GCP books for maths homework have arrived in school and the children will be given them this Friday and they will self-mark the pages they have been given and bring their homework back in on the following Friday. Should anyone need any help with the homework before then, please bring these books back in on Wednesday. From this, I can support the children with aspects of the homework they do not understand.

Welcome to Skylarks class weekly blog. Every Thursday evening a blog will be posted containing information on what the children have been up to during the week and with expectations of what is to come in the following week. I would like to stress how pleased I am with how the new year 5 class have settled into the daily routine. Their behaviour is impeccable and our new behaviour policy is ensuring that their positive behaviour continues. Thank you to all of the parents who attended our ‘meet the teacher’ evening, it was lovely to meet you all.
This week we have began our learning on place value with some fun games and tricky problems.Next week, the children will be continuning to build on these skills of place value looking at Roman Numerals and comparing numbers.
Skylarks have loved inferencing ideas on what our new class book is, from which, we have began to create some brilliant pieces of writing. Next week, we will be writing up begin to create descriptions of settings based on pictures in the book. The children are working collaboratively to ensure that they are meeting expectations during lesson time.
Homework will consist of weekly spellings, reading, times tables rockstars and a piece of maths homework. Spellings and maths homework will be given out on a Friday and is due back the following Friday for marking and testing.
I hope everyone has a fantastic week and if you are unsure of anything please feel free to come and speak to me (Miss Thwaites) or Mrs Hulse in the mornings.
