YEAR 5 HOMEWORK - 5th July 2019

PESE POWER POINT - please click for details

Kent Test Paper Flyer - please click for details

The children’s homework task for the next two weeks is to take items of rubbish and then turn the rubbish into a flower (or flowers) to decorate our school float for this summer's Hythe Venetian Fete. This year the Venetian Fete organisers are focusing on how to make the event eco-friendlier. This is a great opportunity for our children to become more environmentally aware by thinking about the different types of rubbish we generate. It is also a great way to put their creativity and design skills to the test! The flowers can be as big and as bold as you like and made of anything! The children were shown a few examples of flowers made from plastic bottles and drink cans in assembly this morning. FoSA will be donating prizes for their favourite flowers handed in before Friday 19th July. The more flowers we have the more prizes we will give out! We can’t wait to see your wonderful creations.


Please remember that Monday is the very last day that costumes can come in for our Olivia play. Costumes in a bag all labelled, please. 

We will be meeting our buddies next week as well . Year 5 children have all said that they will bring in picture books to share on Monday with their buddies.

For our KS2 school play, most Year 5 children will be in a market scene and later be attending the opera. If your child is playing an alternative role, and needs an alternative costume, you will already know this. Therefore the remaining children will need the following costumes:

For Market Scene

All children (boys and girls) to bring in a basket to sell things from.

Boys (typical Victorian costume) - dark coloured trousers (No jeans!) shirt and possible waistcoat/ suit jacket, braces if you have them and a cap/hat. Also regular school shoes please - no trainers.

Girls (Also typical Victorian costume) - long skirt and belt from mum/grandma! Blouse/shirt, bonnet/hat, accessorises such as scarf, beads, handbag and appropriate shoes.

For Opera Scene -  As above but please adapt costumes by making slightly smarter, i.e. add beads, tiara, hats, flowers, gloves etc…..

Please do not feel you need to buy anything.  Just adapt clothes you already have or borrow from friends.

Please see Mrs Crook or Mrs Watson if you have any problems.  Please can all costumes be in school on Monday, 8th July.  Please label your costume.

Have a good weekend.

Mrs Crook & Mrs Watson
