Spellings are given out on a Thursday and are to be tested the Thursday after. Children will have an opportunity to learn these in class but it would be beneficial if your child could revise these during the week and write them out on their test sheet which will go home.
Please ensure that your child is reading their home reading book at least three times per week. Your child needs to return their reading record book at least once per week so that staff can check their progress. Children can bring their reading book in any day once they have finished it to get it changed.
Children will be visiting the library on Friday morning. We are excited to have an interesting range of books and we hope that your children will enjoy reading these at home.
P.E is on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings the correct kit. It should consist of a black pair of shorts, a plain white t - shirt and black pumps. When the weather gets colder, children can wear jogging bottoms.
Autumn Term 1
This half term we will be learning lots of interesting things and learning some new skills.
This term we will be focusing on diary writing and journalistic writing. We will be using the book FArTHER as a stimulus for our diaries and building up our vocabulary to make our writing have more impact for the reader. We will be looking at the features of newspaper articles and writing our own exciting news stories.
This half-term in maths we will be focusing on developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction - consolidating our knowledge from Year 4 and building upon it. We will also be having fun with angles and the perimeter of shapes.
Our topic this term will be all about the Anglo Saxons. We will be finding out about where they came from and where they settled in comparison to modern English counties. We will be researching what life was like in Anglo Saxon times and investigating what evidence they left behind.
Our science topic this half-term is Properties of Materials. Children will be able to use appropriate vocabulary to describe materials and will carry out a range of fair tests to compare materials.
