Welcome to Year 5!

Parent  Information Letter November 2018

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I hope that you all had an enjoyable half term break and feel refreshed and ready for the run up to Christmas. I look forward to meeting you all to discuss your children's progress at parents meetings during the first week of December. We have a very busy half term ahead of us with the residential trip to Alton Castle surely the highlight for the children!

 

You will find on this section of the website the Curriculum Planner for the Autumn 2nd Half Term. This contains all of the information that you and your child will need regarding the curriculum for this half term, but please feel free to catch me in the playground after school if you would like to discuss any matters.

 

PE lessons will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays this term. Please ensure that all kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

 

Homework in Grammar and Maths will be set each Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday – children will have a number of pages of a grammar booklet and an arithmetic test to complete each week. There will be no Topic project homework this half term - children will have another project to complete in the new year. Spellings will be sent home on a Friday to be tested the following Monday.

 

As in previous year groups, the children will bring home a school reading book and reading diary. Reading books should be brought into school every day so that they can be used during quiet reading sessions. Please try to hear your child read at least twice a week, and sign and date in the reading diary when your child has read at home. House points will be given for each time your child does this. As in Year 4, children will be expected to complete two activities in their reading journal each week. 

 

As a general point, it is really important that your child is now confident with all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. Please continue to work on these at home – focusing particularly on the division facts as well as the multiplication (i.e. children should know that 56 ÷ 8 = 7 as well as knowing that 8 x 7 = 56). If your child is confident with all of their times tables, please move on to practising all squared numbers 13 x 13 = 169, 14 x 14 = 196… etc). They will be tested on their times tables every other week on a Monday morning. 

 

I will be asking that all children have the opportunity to work as part of a small group to prepare a short prayer service to lead to the class in Year 5. I will give children examples of these in the first few weeks and will ensure that all children have sufficient advanced warning to ensure that they prepare a service that they feel proud of. Please have a look at the Year 5 website pages for further information about prayer services.

 

I look forward to more learning and fun in Year 5 this half term. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Mr Caddick
