- Year 5 PE days are usually on Wednesdays and Thursdays, however children need to have their PE kits in school every day of the week as we may take PE opportunities at other points in the week should we feel this would benefit the children.
- Weekly music lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. The children will be continuing their knowledge of how to play the recorder (from Year 3) but will focus more on intonation, reading sheet music and learning different tunes.
- If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 5 we strive to achieve greater independence. We operate an open-door policy and welcome parents and guardians to approach and discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher. Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
New Maths or English tasks are set every Monday and collected back on the following Monday, unless specified differently by the class teacher. The children receive their spellings termly and all homework tasks are outlined/linked under the subheadings below. If you cannot access these files, or would prefer a paper copy to be sent home with your child, please can your child let their class teacher know and this will be arranged.
This week, we would like children to take part in a Times Table Rockstar battle; this will begin on Monday 16th March at 9am and will end on Sunday 22nd March at 8pm. Good Luck!
Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week for approximately 20 minutes each time. During this time, they should record their own comments in their reading journals. They may choose to read to themselves, but are advised to read out loud to an adult at least once a week. We ask that parents sign the last box of every page in their child's reading record so that this is being monitored at home as well as at school. It is imperative in Year 5 that children are reading regularly to help improve their writing and to prepare them for future years. It is equally as important for them to discuss and reflect on their understanding of the story. This is done in their reflective comments but should also be addressed through discussions with adults at home. If you would like some support on helping your child with their reading. please see their class teacher - we are always happy to help!
Children need to practise their set spellings every evening in their ‘home spelling books’. There are lots of spelling strategies to refer to at the front of these books.
Over the last two weeks the children have been working hard to develop their persuasive writing. After looking at language skills used to persuade - they were assigned a planet to research and advertise as a new holiday destination! In order to do so, they have combined their English and Computing skills to create and publish leaflets! Please click on the link below to take a look through our creations:
To kick off Term 3, Year 5 became detectives! Investigating a crime scene left in the small hall, the children pieced together a police report of what they think happened and who they thought was involved...
