This half term, our PE days are a Monday (Netball) and a Friday (Tag Rugby). Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school. Children will require outdoor PE kit this half term, including suitable footwear.
Times tables: In Y5, it is expected that most children should be able to rapidly recall their times tables facts, especially as it helps them with many other areas of mathematical learning. To maintain this skill, children will have a weekly times tables test, every Thursday. Children can practise their times tables skills at home on TT Rockstars.
Spellings: As well as the 100 word list of spellings for Year 5/6, children will continue to follow the RWI spelling scheme. Please see the log book for the rule and words your child needs to practise.
Reading: If you are a free choice reader, you can change your book as often as needed. For those who are still on the reading scheme, reading scheme books need to be handed in during morning job on a Friday each week, so they can be changed before hometime.
Rememeber: Race your reading rocket along our track in our cloakroom to earn rewards! Each reading turn at home counts!
Other homework: Written homework is set each week on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday.

TOPIC – Around The World In 80 Days
Children will begin the first fortnight of this topic by exploring the lifestyle and culture of Japan.
After that, they will continue on their journey to explore and learn about the climate and vegetation of the rainforests.
The next stop will be a trip to South America where children will also learn about their climate, physical environment and economic activity.
The final part of the journey will be a trip for Year 5 as they go on their own adventure for their first ever residential (Cote Ghyll).
Last half term, Y5 enjoyed a trip to Eden Camp so help them learn about some of the experiences of life in World War Two. They enjoyed getting to see artefacts up close and even sat inside an Anderson Shelter.
