New Homework Rules

Unfortunately some pupils are still not bringing their spelling homework back each Friday, practising their multiplication facts or reading frequently enough at home. As a reward to those who do, I will give them with an extra break time on a Friday afternoon, as the KS2 pupils do not regularly get a break during the afternoon session of school. For those children who are not completing the set homework of:

  • Spelling practice (returning their sheet)
  • Multiplication practice (all known facts up to 12x12)
  • Reading book (4 x a week for 20 minutes minimum)

They will need to spend their free time (lunchtime & break time) completing that which has not been given in.

Please can you encourage and support your child to complete these tasks, they are incredibly important to the progression of their learning and are basic skills that they need in many areas of the curriculum, regular practice is essential.

Thank you for your help and support in this matter.

Science Topic - Forces

The children were set the task of investigating the 'Perfect Parachute'. They had a number of variables that they could choose from and had to plan, design and make their own parachutes.

We then tested them! The winners were challenged to save an egg...we had some survivors and lots of fun!

As part of our Earth & Space topic we have completed work in science. art and drama too.

The Leopards joined with the Penguins in Y3 to help edit and improve their writing. They were excellent writing mentors.

PE Lessons

Are Wednesday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times.

 

Water Bottles

Should be brought and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated.

 

Spellings

Sheets should be returned, completed, on a Friday.

 

Reading Books

Your child should know which is their reading day. However, it would be helpful if children can have their reading books and diaries in their bags at all times in case of an interruption to the weekly plan or an opportunity for extra reading occurs. Please ensure that your child is reading out loud to an adult, they are more likely to spot their own mistakes or misunderstandings if they can hear themselves and also you can engage them in discussion about their understanding and enjoyment of a book.

Here is the curriculum outline of the Year 5 learning for the Spring term.

Year 5 Recommended reading list. If your child is struggling for inspiration with reading, this recommended reading list from Educating Together may help. Happy reading!!

Year 5 & 6 are expected to spell the above list of words correctly. Some will appear in the spellings which they practice at home. Please include these words in any work you do with your child at home.
