Home Learning Summer Term First Half

 

Spellings will be given out each Friday.  Spelling lists will consist of words from the statutory Y5 word list and one or two spelling patterns per week.  We will be making use of a resource called 'The Spelling Shed' which provides activities related to the weekly spellings.  These will be used to support the children's learning and some may be sent home.

I will alternate reading home learning with maths home learning, this half term. The maths will be an arithmetic check. Whilst the content of the arithmetic check will be similar each week, it will be good preparation for maths in Y6.
 
Times tables to be tested will be given out on a Friday and will be assessed each Friday.
 
Reading is also extremely important.  A recommended Y5 book list has been given to the children. We hope that they will read as many of these as they can, over the course of the year.  Some will be shared in class, as they relate to our topics, and we hope that others will be read with family members and independently. 

A weekly reading task will continue to be posted on Tuesdays.  The task should be completed and submitted, on Google Classroom, by the following Monday, at the latest. Please, support your children to complete this task to a good standard.  I would like the children to continue to read books off the Year 5 recommended list.  There is a chart on display in the classroom and the books are ticked off as they are read.

 

 

P.E. - Summer Term First Half

Physical Education PE will now be on a Wednesday (swimming) and Thursday (City in the Community).

Please, ensure that your child comes to school wearing an appropriate kit on these days. PE kit can be worn for swimming to make changing easier. If your child wears their swimming costume/trunks under their clothes to start the day, please ensure they pack their underwear in their swimming bag.

The children will need to be in the school building for 8:40 on swimming day.  An outdoor kit will be required on a Thursday.

Snacks

In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime.  Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars.  School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.
