Summer Term 2016


Reading comments are due in on Monday.  We have to do at least 4 reads a week and record it in our home school contact book. If we read the same book each time we just need to record the date and how many pages we read. Some of you might like to do a reading challenge but you don't have to. When you finish a book you must complete a genre review sheet.


Spellings are tested every Friday. Platinum spellers must do their homework and get 18/18 to get a doughnut point.  Remember practise makes perfect.  If you forget, don't worry because there is a link to the sheet below.


Maths homework is handed out on a Tuesday and needs to be handed in the next week to the teacher who set it. 


PE is on a Tuesday morning and with an extra session on a Wednesday if you are not going swimming.  PE kit should be in school all week just in case we have to swap with another class.

Our AWESOME lake posters

Dear parents,

This is the shortest half term of the school year and we’ve packed it full of learning opportunities for the children.  Our topic this half term is focused on Lakes of America, where the children will be comparing life in Wellington with locations around the Great Lakes.  The first week will be a curriculum week where we will immerse ourselves in the topic, exploring elements of physical and human geography.  Hopefully the children will keep you informed about this.


Next week it is book week and a letter has gone out to all about the events of this week.  We will be exploring some stories from around the world as part of this event.

The final two full weeks of the half term we will be having a maths focus because the first two have a literacy theme.  It is an opportunity to investigate and problem solve in a variety of ways.  


Homework will be of a maths based theme supporting work completed in class.  It will be given out on a Tuesday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday.  Spelling day will be on a Friday.  At the moment all the Year 5 are in the middle of a reading genre challenge – speak to the children about what this means!


If there are any problems then please contact any of the Year 5 team who will be happy to help.
