Welcome to Year 5 - Bowden
Hello! My name is Miss White and welcome to our class page. Our class is named after Sir Frank Bowden who founded the Nottingham based Raleigh Bicycle Company.
- This term's newsletter can be found on the side panel (right) under downloads.
- 12th December - Theatre trip to see Black Beauty.
- 15th December - 2pm Christingle at St George's.
Please make sure that PE kits are in school every day. This is so that when there are changes to the timetable, children do not miss out. This term our sports coach Gemma will be visiting on a Thursday afternoon to teach us tag rugby!
Who said homework had to be boring?!
Lots of English and Maths games and activities can be found on the side panel - just click on the links and have some fun!
Don't forget to learn your spellings!

Reading books and diaries should be in school every day. I will check your child's reading diary every Friday to make sure they are reading at home.
Children are expected to keep practising their times tables at home up to 12. Your child should know and be able to use the commutative method. E.g. 2x4=8 in the 4x table and 4x2=8 in the 4x table.
Next week (11/12/17)
In Maths, we are focusing on fractions.
In English, we are continuing with our narrative unit on Black Beauty.
So far this term, we have made a great start to our Viking topic and have also begun learning some German. We have been exploring materials and their properties in science.
