Welcome to Year 5 - Spring Term 2
Welcome back! We are very excited for the continuation of the new year (2024) and are looking forward to working with you to achieve the best that we can.
This half term our topics are: The Stuarts in History and Earth and Space in Science. The book we will be reading is 'Harriet Versus the Galaxy'. 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 30 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. No tracksuit bottoms or leggings are allowed.
Our PE days are Wednesday (pm) and Friday (pm). 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 have a trip to The Planetarium planned - please look out for dates on the school website calendar.
We will have a 'soft-start' form 8:45 Tuesday - Friday. Please encourage your child to attend this as it is a chance to address misconceptions from the day before and ensures we start learning promptly at 9am.
If there are any problems or questions regarding this information, or any aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please do not hesitate to come and speak to one of us.
