Welcome to Year 5!
PE days for the Summer Term 2022 will be every Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. Children will need to bring their indoor PE kit on a Tuesday and their swimming kit on a Thursday. It is essential that the children bring a change of clothes.
Homework will be set each Friday and is due back in the following Wednesday. Children will need to put their homework book into the designated homework box in their classroom. Homework will consist of one activity from the Topic home learning sheet, reading to an adult three times each week, timetables practice and weekly spellings. We ask that adults at home sign and date their child's reading record when they have been heard read. Children need to bring their reading book into school each day even if it doesn’t need changing.
Times Tables Rockstars is an excellent way to encourage your child to practice their timetables at home. We will also be using this website in class to help develop recall of these important facts.
Children are able to bring a water bottle, with water only, in to school which is clearly labelled with their name. These need to be placed in the designated space in your child's classroom. At break times, children are allowed to bring in their own healthy snack.
Topic home learning is set termly from the home learning tasks in your child’s homework book and class pages. Children should choose one activity to complete each week.
Spelling Shed is full of games, which are designed to encourage your children to develop their spelling of the year 5 and 6 curriculum words. Logins can be found in the back of your child's Reading Record book.
Bug Club is a great way for your child to continue improving their reading and comprehension skills. The book bands correspond with the book band that your child is on in school and completing the quizzes by clicking on the Bug's face on pages throughout the books will improve your child's comprehension skills further. Logins can be found in the back of you child's Reading Record book.
Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots is a great way for your child to practise their times tables and number skills. Logins can be found in the back of your child's Reading Record book.
