We have had a great start to the new school year and everyone is settling into life in year five, extremely well.
Over the next term we will be reading and learning about a variety of fantasy fiction books.
Including Harry Potter (Chamber of Secrets), J K Rowling, How to Train your Dragon, Cressida Cowell and My Brother's Ghost Allan Ahlberg.
Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and will be collected in on a Tuesday (including home reading books and signed reading records). If you/your child have any questions about the homework, please do not hesitate to speak to myself or Mrs Dolman.
Homework catch-up session are run on a Wednesday lunchtime in Year 5.
It is important children practise times tables and spellings every week as they are regularly tested on this throughout the year.
Have a go at using some of these Reading Questions at home with your ‘home reading’ books or any other texts, you enjoy reading.
Swimming and PE:
This term on a Thursday we will learning a range of skills through gymnastics. Children will be exploring different movements, actions and balances, linking and sequencing them together to perform and evaluate. This will allow children to work on their resilience, understanding the importance of good-quality performance, evaluation, communication and reflection skills.
Please ensure your child comes with suitable clothes, every week:
- Black jogging bottoms, trainers, socks, a black/grey jumper/sweatshirt or jacket and a white t-shirt.
This year P.E. will take place on Thursday but for ease, we have suggested that all PE kits are brought into school on a Monday and returned home on a Friday.
* If your child wears earrings, please ensure they come with something they can store these in to prevent losing them during PE.
* If your child has long hair, please ensure they bring a hair bobble that day.
Swimming is not running for year 5 this half term, but should be available after October half term.
After half term, unless children are attending a sports related club, or taking part in school canoe club (every Wednesday), they will not be doing gymnastics and should not need to bring their kit in every week, unless requested to by the class teacher.
PE will be covered through a range of activities held throughout the week by the school/class teacher.
