We have another fun-filled term coming up! 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!
This term, our PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Year 5 will be taking part in athletics the Akeel and dodge ball with Bristol Sports Coaches - what a treat! Please ensure that children have the correct and complete PE kits in school throughout the week, in case we have extra PE or our session is swapped.
Please continue to read with your child at home and ask questions to check their understanding. Additionally, keep practising those number facts and time tables! Remember, that any work done at home will earn extra housepoints. It is important that they have a secure knowledge and understanding of these facts.
Hope you all have a lovely break!
