Year 5


Teacher – Miss Moss

Teaching Assistant – Mrs Etchells

Term 2a

PE Days – Wednesday PM and Friday PM. 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 researching Ancient Egyptian beliefs, studying historical sources and recognising continuity and change.

The children will be writing narratives based on ‘The Tear Thief’. They have been busy researching the mysterious eggs that have arrived in school.

In maths we will be focusing on area, perimeter and fractions.

Thank you for your continued support.

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