Welcome to Year 5 - Summer Term 1
Our topics this term are Animals and Humans, Sikhism and stories from other cultures! We will occasionally send home research projects for the children to work on - please support your child as best you can with this.
We are also continuing with Mathletics. Please support your child by encouraging them to use this programme daily.
Year 5 have PE lessons on Tuesday (pm) and Friday (pm). Children should bring a PE kit with them on both days as they will get changed during school time. It is important to ensure that children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene. The PE kit remains unchanged - white t-shirt with black bottoms and black trainers.
School uniform is a red school jumper with a white or red shirt underneath or a red school fleece. Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts, not tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Shoes should be black.
Reading Records need to be filled in daily with a comment from the child about what they have read and new words that they have learnt. Parents do not need to sign the record as this is something that your child should take responsibility for. However, please check that your child is doing this properly. Homework is handed out on Friday and should be returned to school or be submitted on Google Classroom on Wednesdays. Weekly spellings and times tables are given out on Thursday - in time for testing the following week (Thursdays).
School begins with a 'soft-start' on Tuesday - Friday at 8:45am. Please encourage your child to arrive on time as this is an excellent opportunity for children to respond to marking or address any difficulties or misconceptions they may be having with their work and ensures that lessons begin promptly at 9am.
If there are any questions regarding this information, or any aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to speak with one of us.
