Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!
 
We have a very busy term ahead and are looking forward to all of the exciting things we have planned. First though, there are some key dates and information to share......
 
Our Value word this half term is...
Cooperation.
 
Important Information:

1. PE, will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. All kit MUST be in school on these days.
 
2. Home Readers; it is essential that you read with your child every night and sign with a brief comment in the passport detailing what you have read together. Please can you make sure that the book title, the author together with the pages read are noted down and a signature is recorded. As was stated at the reading meetings and in the letter which came home, without these things a strike will be given. If a child leaves a planner at home, please send a note in to confirm they have read.
 
3. If someone different is picking your child up from school, please make sure the adult knows the password. Please also inform the office ahead of time, or write a message in their reading planner, so that class based staff are aware of this.
 
 
Homework:

  1. Spellings: These will be sent home each Friday (stuck into their planners) and then tested the following Friday. We will look at the spelling rule in class prior to spellings being sent home.
  2. Children must complete their reading homework (red homework book) on the evening that they finish their book - this will also be part of their reading for that day.

What a great start to Year 5 the children have made! 
We have already had an amazing start to our topic with a WOW day on the first day of term. The children were:
  • searching for clues on a scavenger hunt
  • taking part in cooking activities
and even completing pyramid addition 

This allowed them to discover our topic for this half term - The Mysterious Maya.
 
We have made a brilliant start to our topic looking at who the Maya are and where they lived.......although we were all quite glad that we weren't living in the hot sticky jungles of the Amazonian Rainforest
