Welcome to Year 5. This year we will be looking at a range of topics from Tomorrows World and Lost in Space to Living arts and Awesome Egyptians. We have a visit to the Barbican for a Bernardos concert and other trips to look forward to, that will support our learning and ethos.
Our PE lessons are on Monday with Mr McCarthy and on Friday with Mr Prentice or Mr Foster. Children are expected to have their PE kits in school at all times. Please ensure that children have an inside and outside kit as the weather is getting colder.
This year the spellings that will be focussed on can be found in the back of the childrens home learning folders. Each week your child will be tested on 5 homework spellings and 5 random words from the list. Encourage your child to practise these words as often as possible.
Please ensure that your child reads on a daily basis. They should be reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. It is important that they read to an adult/older sibling as often as possible. Reading books can be changed at any point in the week once they have completed the book and you have signed their home learning diary. Please ask your child questions about what they have read and encourage them to give opinions about the book.
If your child has permission to walk home on their own at the end of the school day it is essential that you provide written consent, which should be handed directly to the class teacher. Children without written consent will not be given permission to walk home on their own.
Please find attached below the stadards that we will be working towards and achieving as a year group. These standards are high and hard work will be required to achieve them. I look forward to going on the learning journey and achieving with the whole class.
