Key Information

PE is on a Monday and Dance on Tuesday. Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit in school at all times (where possible with the weather, we will be utilising the school field so please ensure children have suitable outdoor trainers).  Also please remember that all jewellery needs to be removed for PE and Dance sessions (we are unable to take out earrings, this must be done by the children themselves) and any with long hair must have a hairband to tie it back.

Some of the main topics for the Autumn terms are Coasts, Ancient Egyptians, Life Cycles and Earth and Beyond.



Autumn Term News

There is a lot to look forward to this term as you will soon see in the curriculum newsletter. We have a visit to Aylmerton in October which we are all looking forward to.

Home Learning

Homework expectations in Year 5 are as follows:

Maths - The children should aim to achieve a minimum of 500 points on Mathletics each week (deadline is Sunday at 7pm)

Reading - Your child reads weekly in a guided reading group with a member of the Year 5 team. We ask that they read their own books regularly at home and complete a weekly task on their own book (in their reading journal) to present to the guided reading group the following session. Please remember to read with your children whenever possible (even if they are fluent and very able readers) as it is really important for them to share their books and hear others read to further develop their understanding of more challenging texts, through questioning, inferring details and predicting events.

Spellings - The children have a weekly spelling session on Friday mornings where they will be tested on the spellings they received and worked on from the previous week. The children will bring home their spelling list and then complete the test in the back of the book the following week.  it is important that your child remembers to bring their spelling book into school each Friday.

Creative Homework - The children have demonstrated incredible enthusiasm for the creative homework so far in Year 5. We have been amazed by the level of effort and commitment shown to these projects. This has resulted in stunning displays in our shared area of everything Ancient Egyptian, followed by all things space - from constellations, planets, satellites, solar systems and even to machinery. They then produced some interesting map work and most recently some stunning examples of their understnading of the UK coastline..
