During the last half term there was an emphasis on year 5 grammar and spelling. Spelling can be practised on the spelling shed website which is linked at the bottom of the page and we would expect them to be practising their spellings every evening.
Every child has the opportunity to read to discuss and read to enjoy. They are able to choose a new library book weekly and are encouraged to change their banded book when ready. Children are expected to read daily.
During the last half term, every objective from the year 5 target maps was covered at least once. As such, this term we will be consolidating that learning and progressing children onto harder examples or asking them to use their knowledge in more abstract ways.
To help us build upon the foundations that have already been laid, it would be great if all children had the ability to quickly recall their times tables up to the 12x table. More than this, practising written methods for the 4 operations would also be useful.
Children are encouraged to use the TT Rockstars website every day. There is a link to the website at the bottom of this page.
PE will be taught on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Please ensure your child comes to school in P.E kit and that they have appropriate clothing for the colder weather. We ask that children wear non branded clothing in plain dark colours.
At the start of each half term, a homework grid is given to all students and one task is expected to be completed weekly. You can find a copy of the homework grid at the bottom of this page.
Please ensure that your child has a quiet place to complete their homework and support them when needed.
Spellings will be handed out on a Tuesday and tested on the following Tuesday.
