YEAR 5 HOMEWORK - homework will be set every Monday and is due in the following Monday. Sometimes children will be given the option to use SEESAW to make and upload a recording as part of a learning log homework.
YEAR 5 READING - please can all children read 3/4 times to an adult so that they can be questioned about the text. Picking out authorial features such as similies, or asking children to name synonyms or antonyms for key words would be useful. In addition, you could try a 'quotation hunt' by asking children to find a statement in the text to support an idea.
PE - Please make sure that P.E. kits are brought into school at the start of every week and if necessary taken home to be washed on the Friday. Year 5 will have PE sessions with Mr Cowling on Thursday and Mrs Bradford on Friday. Children can bring in an anti-antiperspirant to keep them feeling a little fresher during our P.E. sessions. However perfumed sprays are not really suitable; a 'stick' deodorant or 'roll-on' would be more appropriate.
YEAR 5 SPELLINGS need to be practised regularly over the year. Spellings will be given out on a Monday for children to be tested on the Friday.
TIMES TABLES -
It is important that children can quickly recall multiplication facts to 12 x 12 and their related division facts. Children will have a short times table test each Friday, which will build up to include all multiplication facts by the end of the year.
