PE days

This half term, our PE days are a Monday (Orienteering) and a Friday (Dance). Please make sure your child has the correct kit in school. Children will require outdoor PE kit this half term, including suitable footwear. Some PE sessions will be delivered outside so they will need warm, suitable clothing.


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.

TOPIC – The Highwayman

We will be starting this half term by reading the famous narrative poem 'The Highwayman' written by Alfred Noyes. Already in class children have commented in our reading review area how they are inspired by the bravery theme of the poem. Children are also interested in learning the new vocabulary choices.

Children will learn all about the classic poem, focusing on figurative language, and using this to stimulate all areas of the curriculum.
