Year 5 PE is on Mondays at Failand and Fridays in the school hall. Your child can come into school on Mondays in their PE kit, but they must have their uniform in their bag. On Fridays, they should wear uniform and bring their PE kit in.
Homework will be set and due on Tuesdays. Spellings will be set on a new programme called Spelling Shed. More information on this will be coming soon.
In school, reading will be taught through a combination of whole class and small group reading sessions. In addition to the homework set, your child should be reading at home 4-5 times a week. This can be independent but we do encourage you to read with them (or even to them) some of the time.
The children have had a brilliant start back to school this week. We have been getting used to being back to the school routines and have started some exciting learning already.
On Wednesday, the class spent some time thinking about how we should be behaving in the classroom and around the school. We also had a discussion about kindness and gratitude and the children shared some excellent ideas about how we could show kindness and gratitude in our lives.
In Maths, we have been re-capping place value, looking at numbers with up to 5 digits as well revisiting number bonds and our times tables. In English, we re-enacted the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. We then began finding out about some of the creatures from Greek mythology and thinking about how to use exciting vocabulary to describe them.
