Year 5

Year 5 had a brilliant first term! Keep up the hard work!

Teacher – Miss Moss

Teaching Assistant – Mrs Young

Term 2a

PE Days – Tuesday and Thursday AM. Please remember full kit on those days and long hair must be tied back.

Homework will be given out on Friday and should be returned to school the following Thursday. Reading journals on a book read from school should be completed fortnightly and handed in on a Friday.

Spelling tests are weekly and the children should practise as much as they can during the week.

Children are encouraged to read daily at home and discuss the text they are reading with adults or other children to improve their comprehension skills.

Multiplications (up to at least 12 times tables) should be practised as often as possible throughout the week.

Our class topic this term is ‘Pharaohs’. We will be learning all about life in Ancient Egypt across all areas of the curriculum.

The children will be writing a balanced argument based on ‘Pandora’s Box’. We will also be developing our poetry skills and continue to develop our writing by using higher level punctuation and sentence types.

In maths we will continue to work on our arithmetic skills alongside area and fraction work.

Thank you for your continued support.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch with Miss Moss or Mrs Young.
