Reminders for Friday

2 reminders for Friday.

Firstly, can all children please bring a full PE kit, this should include a change of trousers/shorts/leggings as well as a Rosendale PE t-shirt. We have discussed the importance of changing when we do PE, especially now the children are getting a bit older and won’t want to be in sweaty clothes all day.

Secondly, we are having an open morning on Friday. It will be from 8.30 to 9.15 and will be a chance for parents and carers to find out a bit about what their children will be studying in Year 5.


In Metacognition we continued learning the skill of juggling today. This week, we focused on how to coach someone well.

We thought about 3 parts of coaching first:

  • Praising what they’ve done well.
  • Identifying areas which need improvement.
  • Giving steps or skills to practise which will help with improvement.

We also came up with phrases of encouragement we could use when coaching, for example:

  • Believe in yourself.
  • You can do it.
  • Never give up.
  • Keep on trying.
  • Excellent.
  • Keep up the good work.


Today in Maths we looked at sequences. First, we identified the patterns, then corrected the mistakes. Can you try solve one?
