Welcome back to the Summer Term! We hope you had a wonderful break and are ready for this half term's excellent learning.
We have included above, our Year 5 Curriculum Overview for the first half of the Summer term, to let you know what we are covering in each subject and what parents/carers can do at home to help further their child’s development. Please take a look.
Please continue to encourage a love of books and reading with your child, which is vitally important to their life chances, by, for example, joining your local library, reading with/to your child, listening to your child read, discussing books and asking ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions; you can check out our ‘Reading for Pleasure’ section on our school website for further ideas. Your child should be reading at home for at least 20 minutes every day and complete their reading record book at least three times during the week. Please could you sign this.
Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom. This links to English, Maths and Topic work. Please support your child to complete their homework, in small chunks, by the following Tuesday evening. Your child should also practise 2-3 spellings each day on paper. They will be checked on these at the end of the week.
A reminder that P.E. days are as follows:
Ash Class: Wednesday and Friday
Beech Class: Tuesday and Wednesday
Elm Class: Tuesday and Wednesday
Please ensure your child is wearing the correct P.E. kit to school on their elected P.E. days.
