Welcome to class 10. In year 5 we will be working very hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and targets and to prepare ourselves for an important year next year! Each morning we will start with maths based activities such as times tables practice, problem solving and group maths followed by English and Maths lessons. Afternoons will begin with Reading Plus followed by topic lessons.
Dates for your diary - Autumn term 1
Children are asked to bring reading books into school every day. Children who bring in reading books everyday will have more opportunities to read in school and change their books. We also ask that as parents, you encourage daily reading at home with your children. Lunchtime clubs and weekly helpers will also be organised to provide extra reading opportunities and to encourage a positive attitude towards reading.
We are very lucky to be able to access Reading Plus every day during our afternoon reflection time. This is personalised to each child and helps towards building up their comprehension skills, reading speed and to develop their pleasure in reading.
This term our class we will be taking part in Swimming as part of our PE. This is every Tuesday morning. Please ensure your child has their full swimming kit with them including: towel, swimsuit and swimming hat.
In our class we love to celebrate our achievements and feel proud of what we do. We have a 'Request a selfie' station where the children can place a peg on their work to request a 'selfie'. We upload these images to our SeeSaw class page but will also aim to share some on here!
