In Year 5, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday (it will be marked every Wednesday). Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday.
Spring Term 2
This half-term the class will be going swimming every Monday afternoon. Please make sure that the children have a swimming costume for girls (no bikinis) and swimming trunks for boys. Children will also need a towel, swimming hat and preferably some swimming goggles in a named bag with an extra plastic bag for wet costumes and towels.
The class will continue to have P.E. every Thursday afternoon, so please ensure that your child is wearing the correct kit, which is a school PE T-shirt, plain black shorts or plain black jogging bottoms and trainers.
Our turn for Forest School will be in the summer term. For this, children will need to wear their PE kit and bring in wellies in case of wet weather.
If you have a child that is unable to attend school as they are waiting for the result of a Covid 19 test, then there is work for children to complete at home on the Remote Learning page. Regularly practising times tables is always a good thing to do at home. Don't forget that you can use Times Tables Rockstars or Hit the Button. Keep up the reading too!
