WELCOME TO TERM 5!
It is going to be another fun-filled term! Our whole school theme is focused on sustainability. In Year 5, we will be looking specifically at allotments. It would be of great help if you can collect any 2ltr plastic bottles of pop for our recycling garden projects.
We are looking at a picture book in English this term: Window by Jeannie Baker. We will predominantly focus on fiction writing. The skills that we will focus on are: developing cohesion within paragraphs; refining our use of punctuation and the passive and active voice.
In Maths, we will continue to build our knowledge on fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also keep revisiting previous learning through our starter activities to ensure that they can keep all that learning alive in their brains!
We will have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. It will be athletics and dodge ball this term! Ensure that children have the correct and complete PE kits in school on those days.
Please continue to read with your child at home and keep practising those time table facts! Children have been sent home with some spelling words and ideas for practising spelling. It is important that they secure themselves with these.
