Welcome to Year 5!
We are very excited for the start of the school year and are looking forward to working with you to achieve the best that we can.
This half term our topics are: Wales in Geography and Properties of Materials in Science. The book we will be reading it 'The Clockwork Crow'. We will occasionally send home projects based on these areas of learning - please look out for them!
Homework will be set on Google Classroom. It will be posted on Friday with the expectation that it is returned by the following Wednesday.
The children also have 'Reading Eggs' and 'Mathletics' logons. Children should be spending about 20 minutes a day on each of these programmes.
Reading records should be filled in daily by children, there is no expectation for parents to sign these. School uniform (red school jumper, grey trousers / skirts; red checked Summer dresses or grey shorts and red / white t-shirts in Summer) should be worn everyday, including BLACK shoes or trainers.
Our PE days are Monday (pm) and Wednesday (am). The PE kit (black bottoms and plain white t-shirt) should be brought in a bag ready to change into. Children should NOT be wearing their PE kits under their school uniforms. We will be swimming on Wednesdays, please provide a swimming suit, swimming cap and towel on these days.
