Use your mouse to interact with the puzzle and test your ideas.
Very challenging!

Divide

Split a block of wood into a given number of pieces. NOT EQUAL pieces,
just any size pieces! Sounds too easy, right? Yes, but there's a catch.

International Day

 

 

 

Class V really went for it on International Day this year!

Thank you to all parents who helped the children prepare to share all kinds of fascinating facts, costumes and food!

I certainly learned some new things, along with Mrs Swaffer and Year 6 who joined us for a sharing session.

 I'm sure you'll want to enjoy some memories of our day so here are some photos to give you that international flavour we created!

"The Star of Kazan" by Eva Ibbotson - It is full of mystery and I enjoyed every moment.

Welcome to Class V's page for 2017 - 18

 

I hope you've all had a wonderful summer break and are ready for what is bound to be a busy year!

 

PARENTS:

We have our Class V Parents Information Meeting scheduled for Tuesday 5th September at 3pm, so I'm looking forward to meeting you, the parents of my new class. Many of you I know already of course as I have already taught a number of siblings of this year's Class V. I hope the information will be helpful and there will be a chance to ask questions as well. I've added the timetable and this term's curriculum overview below for you as Word documents - feel free to print and put them on the fridge!

 

CHILDREN:

I hope you had a great summer break. Let's hope the weather stays summery for as long as possible... see you all soon! :-)

 

Here's to an educational, productive, creative and fun year!

Regards,

Mrs Heseltine
