Trip to NUAST

Upcoming Trip: Think Tank Wednesday 21st March.

As stated on the newsletter sent out at the start of the year, we have an incredibly exciting trip coming up in March. We are going to Think Tank in Birmingham where the children will explore many galleries and there are two experiences for the children to take part in; ‘Space Mission’ & ‘Cauldron Chemistry’. Please remember that payment will be required prior to the trip and whilst payments are optional, it is easy to understand that without money, trips and experiences just will not happen. The cost of this trip (including coach travel) is £25. There is a letter coming home this week for parents/carers to sign alongside the payment.

Thank you for your continued support.


Children must continue to read as much as possible.

Children are to practise times tables every week - we are trialling TT Rockstars.

Who said homework had to be 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!

There is also a document you can download with the website addresses on.

Superstar Readers

In year 5, we expect the children to read every day. It’s vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. You can earn a raffle ticket for every 3 reads recorded in your reading diary and raffle tickets mean prizes! Children can read anything that interests them; recipe books, newspapers, comics, information books and even cereal boxes!

Times tables

Children must keep practising their times tables up to 12 at home so they can complete their challenges in school. 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.

Our class name - Fothergill

Fothergill Watson (he later changed his name to Watson Fothergill) was one of the leading local architects practicing in the Nottingham area from about 1870 to 1906. During these thirty or so years he designed over a hundred buildings including houses, banks, churches, shops and warehouses; many of which still survive today.
