Welcome back to school!
You have all worked incredibly hard while returning to school and should be very proud of yourselves. We have been reestablishing our school routines again, below are a few things to remember:
PE is on Mondays. However, you can bring your PE kit in on Monday and leave it in the cloakroom for the week. You must take it home at the end of the week.
Please bring in your school water bottle, reading record and reading book, everyday.
You should be reading at home as well as practicing times tables and the weekly spelling at homes. Our spelling and times tables tests will be every Friday.
In Year 5 we have begun to learn how to spell the Common Exception Words for Year 5 and 6 and vocabulary relating to our handwriting and text. It is expected that we will be able to use half of these words appropriately and to spell them accurately in independent writing by the end of year 5. Each week, pupils will have a spelling list in their reading records and be expected to learn these words for Friday.
In class at the end of the day we read together. Currently, we are reading 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl.
In English this term, we are using 'The Lost Thing' by Shaun Tan as inspiration for our own dystopian story. Our grammar focus is around descriptive language and in developing our voices as writers.
We're starting our journey with Power Maths this year. We will be completing a variety of tasks as a class to support pupils in mastering the year 5 curriculum. Currently, we are developing our understanding of place value to 5 digits with a variety of resources.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
