Welcome to Year 5
Dear Parents and Carers,
The first half term flew by in the blink of an eye! This half term is sure to be another busy one with the run up to Christmas.
This half term we will be continuing to learn about the Vikings and their way of life. We will be using our knowledge to write a non-chronological report about Viking villages.
Homework has been discussed with your child, English homework will be given out on Monday each week and maths on a Tuesday. English homework will be due in and marked on Thursday, and maths homework due in and marked on Tuesday. Please encourage your child to plan out their week to ensure they are able to complete their homework. The earlier they begin their homework in the week, the more time they have to come and ask for help if needed, which will allow them to complete their homework independently.
Homework must be signed by an adult once it is completed to say that you have seen it and are happy with their effort.
Spellings and times tables need to be learnt for a test on Fridays, and then new spellings will be given out the following Monday.
Your child will be given a new reading book each week. 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.
Thank you for your support,
Mrs Campbell, Mrs McCloughlin, Miss Ditta and Mrs Cooper.
Please make sure that your child has a water bottle in class - ideally a bottle with a sports lid to avoid spills.
The children will complete their homework by hand in their homework books and bring it into class on the necessary day.
- English homework will be set on Monday and due in on Thursday.
- Maths homework will be set on Tuesday and due in on Tuesday.
- Spellings will be given on Monday and a spelling test completed the following Friday.
The children will have their own set day to return their reading book each week, this will be written in their reading record.
We encourage the children to come and ask for help if they need some support, ideally before the the homework is due so that they still have chance to complete it independently.
As always, we ask that you check your child’s homework and sign it to say that you are happy with their efforts.
PE lessons are on Mondays and Fridays. Children will need both an indoor and outdoor, which should be in school at all times. Swimming kit to be brought into school on Fridays.
Indoor kit: white t-shirt, blue shorts, socks and black pumps.
Outdoor kit: a plain blue tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.
Swimming kit: swim shorts (boys), one-piece swimsuit (girls), goggles, towel, swim cap (if girl's hair not tied up).
