The children will be given homework tasks each Friday. The homework will be used to consolidate the children’s knowledge of what has been covered in class. There may also be tasks asking the children to find out information for a topic. It is very important that the children complete these homework tasks to the best of their ability. If they are having difficulty, please ask them to inform me and I will be happy to explain it again. The homework is due in on the following Wednesday. If homework is not completed there is the consequence of missing break times the following day until it is completed.
Please could the children have a PE kit in school all week as there are times when the timetable changes and our PE lessons move to another day. We will be having outdoor PE session on a Monday afternoon and indoor P.E session on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.The P.E Kit should include black shorts and joggers, white t-shirt and pumps/trainers. Please note that jewellery, other than small ear studs, should not be worn to school and to prevent injury all earrings should be removed for P.E. Children with long hair will need a hair tie for P.E.
Class Dojo is a new way for teachers to encourage pupils and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS/Android. (Please ask if you require a copy of your log in). We will be using this in class alongside our Good to be Green system. We will discuss the ways in which points are gained or lost during circle times to ensure that it fits in with our behaviour policy. Children can access at home to personalise their avatars.
It is very important that the children have their reading book in school every day. We will hear the children read as often as possible each week, however this isn’t always possible with such a busy timetable in Year 5. Any help from home with the children’s reading towards greater intonation and fluency within would be appreciated. Please complete their reading journal to reflect the practise being done at home.
Please note: We do not have a designated "Changing Book Day". The children can change their school reading book once an adult has signed their reading record to show that the book has been completed.
Library Launch Day
Year 5 celebrated Roald Dahl day with the launch of the school library. They were able to choose from a wide selection of books and had the opportunity to scan their own books out to take home and enjoy.
In the afternoon they had the opportunity to show off their acting skills. They were given a script of a scene from the BFG and worked in groups to perform it to the rest of the class.
Here are a few pictures of the day
