SPELLINGS FOR 25th March; test on 29th March
Welcome to Year Five
Welcome back to school. We hope that you had a lovely half term holiday. Please find our termly newsletter and curriculum map below.
Reading and Spelling
Children are reminded to read at least three times a week. Reading records for both classes, will be checked on a Monday, by Mrs Anning, and reading points will be allocated accordingly.
New spellings are given out on a Monday, for a test the following Friday. We will practice these words in school and would like the children to practice at least 3 times a week at home.
We continue to use Class Dojo as a means of communication with parents and carers. In order to be part of the class group, and receive general information from Mrs Sharp and Mrs Cooper, as well as specific information for your child, you need specific login details. If you haven't signed up for it yet, please make sure your child asks their teacher for the information.
Thursday: Outdoor (please send you child in with appropriate outdoor clothing)
Dear parents and carers
Welcome back to term 4.
In class, our topic is Inventors, in particular Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
Our PE lessons will be on a Monday morning, in the school hall, and Thursday afternoon, on the MUGA. Please ensure children have appropriate PE kit, including footwear, and outdoor clothing.
Our focus for home this term remains to be on reading and spelling. Please remember to encourage your children to read, at least three times a week, and record this in their reading records. These should be brought in on a Monday. It is your child’s responsibility to change their book once they have read it. If you happen to have any at home, please hand them into your child’s teacher. Children are encouraged to practice their spellings, at home, daily. This can be done by simply saying, writing and checking their spellings. The children have also learnt many other ways to practice their spellings at home, please see your child’s teacher if you would like support with this.
Finally, if at any point, you need to talk to us, please call the office, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or try and catch us at the beginning or end of the day.
Mrs Sharp and Mrs Cooper
