Happy Half-Term!

We made it!

I have attached the spellings to be tested on the first Friday back after half-term.          Spellings 28. 05.21

Forest school and P.E. days remain the same after half-term.

I hope you all have a super break and enjoy the sunshine!

Well done Year 5 for another week of working hard and learning lots! We have been working on persuasive writing in English. The children began working on an advert for a new healthy snack bar – thinking up names and slogans and using persuasive devices in their writing. I’m sure they will enjoy discussing slogans/advertising with you as they were very enthusiastic about it in class. We also began learning about healthy lifestyles and the importance of looking after our minds as well as our bodies over Mental Health Awareness week. This work will continue until half term.

New spellings for this week: Spellings 14.5.21

Remember that next Thursday is ‘Dress up as a Pirate’ day!

Have a super weekend!

Mrs Smout


We have had a lovely week back at school! The weather has been kind enough to let the children have some time for outdoor-learning, every day. We have planted our sunflowers in our garden and are excited to be able to watch them grow. We have been looking at Aesop’s fables in English, this week, started our Science unit on Living things and their habitats and begun our History topic, which is about the Middle East.

Please continue to hear your child read at home. If you are struggling to find reading books or have exhausted your bookshelves, then please do drop me an email at  smout.a@pontesbury.shropshire.sch.uk

The children are continuing to learn their times tables in school and practising at home will benefit them, also.

Here are this week’s spellings to be tested next Friday: Spellings 23.4.21

Enjoy your weekend,

Mrs Smout

Welcome back!

I hope you all had a lovely break.

Here are this week’s spellings which will be tested on Friday. New spellings will normally go out on a Friday. Spellings 19.4.21

Forest school continues on a Thursday afternoon. Children should come to school in their play clothes (preferably long sleeves and trousers, wellies or trainers which you don’t mind getting muddy).

P.E. remains on a Friday afternoon. Children should come to school in their P.E. kit.

Please send your child to school with a water-bottle, everyday.

Thank you

Mrs Smout
