Welcome to Year 5
Welcome back to all the Year 5 children! We will be learning some interesting and exciting topics this year (please see the curriculum outline for further information on each half term topic).
Each half term children will have a home learning project (details will be sent hone in a letter). Children can share work by emailing in photos, posters or PowerPoint presentations.
There will be no homework books, school reading books or reading records for the time being. However, children will have 10 spellings to learn each week and a mental maths 'learn it!' They should practice these at home daily and will be tested every Friday. Scores will be sent home to monitor progress.
Reading at Home:
Children are expected to read everyday. Each half term there will be a suggested book to get hold of to read at home together with parents and carers. Further comprehension support and activities will be sent out for each child and book reviews completed.
This is an excellent resource to support your child's reading and develop comprehension skills. Please use everyday and make sure children are logging on and using Reading Buddies with Google Chrome and not Internet Explorer!
Daily Mathletics is a fantastic way to boost learning in maths. Activities are linked to the maths curriculum and when children play regularly it is really noticeable in lessons. Please encourage your child to use Mathletics.
Year 5 will have PE on Tuesdays. Please ensure that children come to school in their PE uniform on that day.
Year 5 have soft start beginning at 8:45. School ends at 3:30pm. Please make sure you pick up your child promptly as the playground will need to be clear for the next class bubble to leave.
If you have any questions or would like advice on how best to support your child with their learning at home please don't hesitate to contact the office to make an appointment.
