Learning this week:
It has been another fantastic week of learning in year 5, capped off with a planetarium visit on Friday which the pupils (and staff) really enjoyed!
Our topic of place value in maths has come to an end and we will be starting addition and subtraction next week. In English, the pupils have started to think about writing a non-chronological report describing ET’s home planet. Both classes have also been excited to start working with their year 2 reading buddies once a week.
Hopefully, some of you were able to look at the Moon on last night and think about which phase of the lunar cycle we were in. Science continues next week with a lesson focussing on day and night on Earth.
The pupils are making fantastic progress with their space themed maze game in computing. Using the Scratch platform, they have started to code their game and create their own space character, background and maze.
Can all pupils continue to record homework in their purple homework books and remember to bring them in each Friday to be checked. Times table rock stars need to be completed each week – 10 garage and 3 sound check. Reading is x5 per week. Please let us know if your child needs more support with this.
Please put spare trainers in your child’s bag. In the event of rain, wet play and PE are result in wet, damp shoes. Thank you.
Please remember to read the Head teacher’s letter for this week.
Please can your child read 5 times a week, preferably out loud. They have a reading log which will be checked every Friday morning. Please ensure their reading book comes in every day.
TTRS is up and running. We are asking everyone to complete about 30 minutes a week please. This is best split into 3, 10 minute sessions. Once the garage and soundcheck tasks are complete, children can choose what they play on there. Each child should have their tables set on the garage tasks, which enables them to practise comfortably. The other games are all tables.
Teachers will check the online logs every Friday. Please let your class teacher know if there is a problem.
As soon as the spelling homework books have arrived, spelling homework will start. Children should record spelling practice in their purple homework books. This will be checked every Friday. Please see the spelling menu and word list below.
