Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ...

 

 

 

Our class novel this half term is ...  

Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse by Chris Riddell

 

Spelling - we will hand out spelling homework each Friday for a test the following Friday – please help your children practise their spellings at home. Work will also be set each week on Spelling Shed to complete.

Maths – each week your child will be set some work to consolidate what they have been learning that week on Sumdog – this will help embed their learning. They will also be given a worksheet as homework when necessary. Please ensure your child completes their homework to assist them in their learning.

 

Spellings-  we will also be looking at the year 5/6 word list and will be randomly selecting them from the list to test each week.

 

Reading- every day for at least 15 mins with an adult.

Reading Books  

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal.  For every three reads that the children complete and log with an adult, they shall receive a golden ticket to be entered for a prize draw at the end of the half term.

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.

 

 

Don't forget to bring your flute to school every Tuesday!

 

PE days for Year 5

PE will be on a Tuesday and swimming on a Wednesday Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on Tuesdays

PE Kit =  black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 

 

Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school
