Hello and welcome to year 5's class page!
We will try and keep you up to date with all the activities and exciting events as we go through the year. This year, we have P.E on Monday with Anthony and we will be swimming on Wednesdays. Please try and keep PE kits in school all week, just in case. Spellings are given out on Friday and the test will be on the following Friday. You can find a copy of the spellings below.
Mr Sellors, Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mrs Wyles and Mrs Smith.
In line with our revised spelling guidance, from this week, spellings will be given out on Fridays with the test the following Friday. There will now be only 16 spellings including our word of the week. Your child will be coming home with their spelling score on their new set of spellings to share with you. Children who do not wish for their score to be read out in class will be given their score privately. We are working on tenses in SPaG over the next week. I will put some links on below. Have a great weekend and keep up the TT Rockstars work!
A few parents have asked about how they can best support their children's learning at home. The two biggest ways are by practicing spellings every week including writing them in sentences to help with application and understanding and also by climbing the ranks through TT Rockstars. So much of the maths we do has roots in being secure in times tables and the TT Rockstars app is a brilliant resource to help with this. If your child needs their login details again, please let me know. Our class novel this term is Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. It would be great if a few more children could get their own copy which they could read in class when we work on the book. It can be found on eBay and Amazon as well as other book shops. I will also try and add some websites which will help to consolidate the work we are doing in class each week. Please keep checking back regularly for the links which will be added below.
