Hi Year 5 , Parents and Carers.

A 'BIG THANK YOU' to all the parents for making it possible for the children to be part of the School visits to Thertford Ancient House Museum and to the Gressenhall Museum for the 'Christmas in the Workhouse Day'. The children looked amazing in their Victorian costumes and the staff at Gressenhall praised them all for their behaviour and enthusiasm during the entire day.  I will upload the pictures from the last two trips in Year 5 Gallery as soon as I can.    Thank you once again for all your support over the Autumn  Term.

Good Morning,

Just a quick message to say a big,  'THANK YOU'  to you all for the way you represented Redcastle Family School yesterday during our visit to The Ancient House Museum, your behaviour was excellent and your enthusiasm was noted by all the staff there. They can't wait to see you again next month.

If you would like to show your parents a few of the activities of what you got up to look in the Class Blog.

See you in school.










Hello, Year 5        

Do you know who this person is?

Hello Children 

We are at a very busy time in Year 5's calendar.

On Monday, as a class, we will be walking to the town to visit the Ancient House Museum where we will meet the staff to  discover the story of Norfolk’s ‘Black Prince’ (picture above), and find out how Duleep Singh is remembered in Thetford today. We will be learning about  his early life in the Punjab and his friendship with Queen Victoria. We will also be trying our hand at  Indian cookery and gaining a better understanding  about his Sikh faith.

It will be a trip that will develop your learning of the Victorians as well as adding to your knowledge and  understanding of the local area.

I'm really looking forward  to sharing the experience with you.

Please make sure you wear school uniform plus comfy shoes and a warm raincoat for walking to the museum (windows may be open in the Museum for ventilation so children need to have their school sweatshirts on) 

Tuesday - PE, please make sure you have your PE kits ready for your lesson. 

See you Monday 

Mrs Chrystal






I hope you are enjoying your week off.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.

We have a very busy but exciting few weeks ahead of us so I hope you will be returning to school refreshed and eager to learn many more new skills  and a bucket full of interesting knowledge.  

So enjoy the next few days, remember to open a book and enjoy reading a few pages of a story or find out something new from an information book.  Also refresh your memory by making sure you know all your times tables to 12 x 12, and your number bonds. This can be achieved  by challenging yourself to completing a few calculations.

See you soon

Mrs Chrystal
