Welcome to Year 5
Wow - What an exciting half term we have planned for Year 5!
We will start the 2nd half of the Autumn term with our Anglo-Saxon experience day on Tuesday 31st October. Please remember to wear your costumes!
We will be immersing ourselves in this historical period throughout the rest of the term so be prepared to take a journey back in time.
We had an amazing day and really flexed our Building Learning Power muscles.
Here is a taste of some of the activities.
Miss Moasci will be teaching in Year 5 on Mondays. Mrs Singh will be teaching Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We will be supported this year by Mrs Ponchaux.
Homework will be set every Friday and this will need to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to complete their work on time and to a high standard.
We would like the children to read for 30 mins for a minimum of five times a week and record their reading in their reading record. Reading comprehension activities will form part of their homework. In addition, we will be reading in class and responding to our reading both orally and in writing.
The children will receive a set of weekly spellings each Friday. They will be tested on these the following Friday. Please help your child to learn their spellings through the week. We will also teach the children the rules and apply the spellings in our spelling sessions, as well as in their daily work.
Year 5 will have PE every Monday and Friday - please can the children have both indoor and outdoor PE kits in school.
If you have any queries please feel free to come and speak to us.
