Welcome to Year 5!
The team working with your children this year will be
Mrs Hanham - Fir
Mrs Carter - Rowan
Mrs Skinner, Mrs Jones - Elder
The topics for this term are 'Earth and Space' and 'The Mayans' and we will be teaching through a cross-curricular approach, where possible. PE will be taught on Monday and Wednesday 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.
Home Learning is given on a grid for the term. We would like the children to complete at least 6 pieces from the grid, per term. In addition to the home learning grid, the children may also be asked to complete an arithmetic test at home. We would ask that you listen to your child read regularly each week and provide opportunities for them to read independently. This should be recorded in the reading records and signed each week by an adult at home. Teachers will also be setting targets in these for you to develop with your child.
Spelling tests and Speedy Spiders will be every Thursday.
