Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5's class page,
This half term we continue our History work, now concentrating on the Viking period of History. We have already had a fantastic visit from a real life Viking, Wayland. Much of our cross curricular and English work will continue to link to the Vikings.
On this page, you will find details of homework and PE days. We continue to have swimming lessons on a Friday.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or queries,
English homework and spellings will be given on a Monday and due back in to mark in class on Thursday. Our class spelling test will take place on Fridays.
Please check your child's reading journal for which day of the week their book should be returned to school. It is important that your child reads at home daily for 10-15 minutes, to an adult whenever possible. Please comment in the reading journal after listening to your child.
Maths homework will be given on a Tuesday by Mr Kendall, due in on Friday to be marked in class.
We ask that you encourage your child to plan out their week to ensure they are able to complete their homework. If they are struggling with a task that has been set, please encourage them to ask myself or Mr Kendall for help.
Homework must be signed by an adult once it is completed to say that you have seen it and are happy with their effort.
PE lessons are on Mondays and Fridays. Children will need both an indoor and outdoor kit, which should be in school at all times.
Indoor kit: white t-shirt, blue shorts, socks and black pumps.
Outdoor kit: a plain blue tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.
"I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”
