Welcome to Year 5!
Your teachers this year will be Mrs Saunders and Mr Cochrane!
Could all children ensure they have the correct PE kit in school each week, ready for our timetabled lessons on Mondays and Fridays as well as any other opportunities to be active during the school week.
This half term, Year 5 will switch from their Geography studies to having a History focus. This will be based around the Ancient Egyptians. During this focus the children will cover more diverse aspects of this important period such as their impact on the world, the uses and importance of the River Nile as well as their religious beliefs and many other interesting areas of life. The children will use a range of skills and present their work in engaging ways as well as accessing learning opportunities they may not have experienced before.
This year homework will be handed out on a Friday and expected to be completed then handed in by the Wednesday of the following week.
Homework will consist of an English based task, a Maths task as well as spellings.
Spellings will be tested each Friday.
Housepoints will be awarded for completed homework and the children will have the opportunity to display some examples around the classroom.
As well as homework, the children will also be expected to take responsibility to change their reading books on a regular basis using the school library.
To encourage the children to read regularly at home, we would appreciate it if adults could record, in Reading Records, each time the child has read.
