Year 5 and Reception have been reading for pleasure together. We have been sharing our love of reading, by reading with younger children and sharing books we enjoyed.
Our house dodgeball competition was launched by an England and Team GB athlete, Mark Allan.
Year 5 sports leaders enjoyed leading and running the event along with year 6.
Everyone worked collaboratively to follow the School Games values scoring system.
We’re thoroughly enjoying leaning the ukulele as part of our Upbeat music lessons. We’re showing persistence and determination.
Year 5 stayed overnight at school, sleeping in space pods, learning about space in an indoor planetarium and then star gazing outside. It was out of this world!
Year 5 have been resilient and persistent artists, learning how to improvise, edit and create wonderful Lowry influenced artwork of our school.
PE is on a Tuesday and Friday. PE kit should be left in school and can be taken home to be washed at the end of each half term.
Children should bring in a named water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.
Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.
As a guide children in Year 5 are expected to do 1 hour of homework a week.
Children must read at least three times a week and you are expected to record in the reading record that you have heard them read, this is checked in school every Friday.
A home learning task is set every other Monday and children will be given 10 days to complete it. The task is on a printed sheet which is stuck in the children’s home learning books. Books must be returned to school on the given date for marking.
We recommend children access Mathletics regularly. They will be set a maths homework each week.
Children have a spelling test every Friday, they will be given spellings in a yellow book which must come back to school the following Friday to allow them to be given their new spellings. Test will take place in a red book which remains in school.
