We are so impressed with how all the children have settled into year 5 and have come in every morning ready to learn.

They all worked very hard during the first week of English to write an informal letter, a formal letter and an advert. In week two, the children will be starting their science fiction unit of work which will build up to them writing their own science fiction story. In Maths they have been learning about place value and recapping year 4 objectives as well as covering year 5 curriculum.

  • PE – please help the children to remember their PE shoes on the days they have PE
  • AR5 – Tuesday and Wednesday
  • RL5 – Wednesday and Thursday
  • SJ5 – Tuesday and Thursday

This year the children will not have reading diaries so please send a message on Dojo each weekend to tell us if your child has read 3 times and we will award them with dojos. If we do not receive a message then we will presume they have not read at home and ask them to read in class during play time. Don’t worry, we will be kind and ease them into this rule slowly.

Children will take the quiz for their book in school like they did last year. We will keep an eye on the quizzes that the children are taking to see if they are finding the book too easy or hard and once they have done a few quizzes we may decide to change their ZPD.

Staff in school will be changing books for the children once a week in their library slot so that the children have two books from the library. One book will stay at home and the other book will stay in school. If your child has finished their book, please help them to remember to bring their book in for their library day so it can be changed. The class library days are listed below.

  • AR5 – Monday
  • RL5 – Thursday
  • SJ5 – Tuesday

Homework will be set on MyMaths every Friday. Please also continue to encourage the children to read and go on TTR at least three days a week.

The quickest way to contact the class teacher is to send a message on Dojo and they will get back to you as quickly as possible.
