Welcome to Year 5!
The team working with your children this year will be Miss Turner, Miss Law, Mrs Beanlands and Mr Young.
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 Wednesday 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!) to stay in school.
Home learning is sent out on Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. In Year 5, children are expected to complete two pieces of work (one more formal piece as well as the former creative one). 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 we have adopted this year 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.
If you have any questions, please feel free to come and see us at the end of the school day
