Welcome to year 5 for the Spring term! Please check the website for updates and pictures of events.
Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Calvert and Mr Hunt. Both classes made great progress last term and we can't wait to get started with the summer term.
Our policy for homework will continue to be little and often. Children are given spellings to copy in to their planners each Friday/Monday depending on the class, which needs to be returned and completed the following Friday/Monday ready for a test. A list has been sent home with the termly overview of all the spellings tohelp you support your child this term. Reading books come home daily and we encourage children to read for approximately 10 minutes a night. Please would you also encourage them to record this reading in their planner. To help with their maths, children are given SMIRF targets are encouraged to practise these skills daily.
Our class novel this term is 'Danny the Champion of the World' by Roald Dahl. We would like to encourage parents to purchase a copy of this book for their children if possible but we do have a few copies in school if this is not possible. This book has proven extremely popular in the past and helps to support our 'Woodlands' topic well.
Children require indoor shoes at school and will need P.E kits on Tuesday and Thursday if in 5WC and Thursday and Wednesday if in 5JH.
We hope your children have another great term and please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information.
