Welcome to Year 5!
The team working with your children this year will be Miss Turner, Miss Gilham, Mrs Ranyard and Mrs Lundy.
The topics for this term are 'Space' and ' The Mayans' and we will be teaching most subjects to fit with these themes. PE will be taught on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (children should have appropriate kit in school on these days). Art will happen at various points during the week, so please send your child in with an art apron (an old shirt will do!), which will stay in school.
Homelearning is given on a sheet for the half term. We will request the homelearning logs randomly, with notice. In addition to the homelearning sheet, the children will be expected to complete an arithmetic test when they are sent home and to go through it with an adult. Alongside home learning, children should be reading to you for 30-40 minutes a week on top of independent reading. This should be recorded in the new reading records and signed each week by an adult at home. Teachers will also be setting targets in these fortnightly for you to develop with your child.
The spellings for the whole term will be sent home during the first week. Tests will be every Friday.
Speedy Spiders tests will be each Thursday.
If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see us at the end of the school day
