Welcome to Year 5 where our topic this half term is called Stargazers. We may have only been back a week but we have already had a visit from Starlincs planetarium and started to plan our space-inspired experience afternoon ready for the end of the topic.
Our PE session with JB sports is on Tuesday mornings but PE kits need to be in school all week so that if the time changes or we include extra sessions then all children are prepared.
Reading books need to come to school every day as we aim to listen to the children read as often as possible. Please remember to write a short note in your child's reading record when you listen to them read at home so that we know how they are doing with their home reading and when their book needs changing. Also we have a reading reward scheme whereby the children can earn rewards for reading at home!
Homework will consist of spellings, maths and a longer topic based piece of work. Home learning will be sent home on a Wednesday and is due in on a Monday morning. We encourage the children to take a responsible attitude towards their homework but our door is always open if any questions or queries arise.
Myself and Mrs Cobb are looking forward to an action packed year full of lots of learning and laughter!
