Welcome back year 5 and a Happy New Year! 

We are looking forward to this first half of the spring term. 

 

*  School clubs are continuing unless notified otherwise.

 

 * Homework - We have transitioned to digital homework.  There is a set number of games on spelling shed which should be completed, as well as a good amount of time spent on Times Table Rockstars, practising times tables.

We have lots of interesting topics to cover in Year 5.  This half term we will be covering the following: -

Maths

Working on the four operations

 

Perimeter and Area

 

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

 

Please continue to support your children with learning/securing their times table knowledge through Times Table Rockstars. 

Reading/VIPERS

Our Spring Term 1 book will be Street Child by Berlie Doherty.

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read for at least 20 minutes each day.  In Year 5, we would like children to write comments in their Reading Records to keep track of the books they have read, whether they would recommend them to a friend and if they enjoyed the text.
