We are looking forward to an INCREDIBLE year...
Games lessons will be on a Monday afternoon and the children will require kit suitable for all weather conditions, as they will take place outside whenever possible. P.E. is swimming on Friday mornings (until Easter 2019).
Spelling tests will be weekly on a Friday afternoon and all homework will be set via Mathletics and Reading Eggspress.
It is important for children in Year 5 to read every night. Please remember to record any reading your child does in their reading diary. These will be checked every week so please make sure they are in school every day.
Class teachers are available on the playground every day if you have any questions.

Talk for Writing
We are using 'story maps' to help us learn, understand and write challenging text.
We are debating 'Should Britain have used underage soldiers in the Great War?'. It's a BIG discussion and a BIG story map, however the children are now pros and are fascinated by the topic.
The second Autumn term has started with 'Jim's War', a powerful narrative linked to our First World War Centenary learning.
In October, we rehearsed our first non-fiction story map - 'How is aluminium recycled?'
In September, we learnt 'The Promise'.
Ask your child to tell you this story, we think you'll be impressed!
