Welcome to Year 5,
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead! Our first topic will be "Mysteries" where all of our foundation subjects will have a mysterious link. Our Active Reading book is Skulduggery Pleasant and our Science focus is Earth and Space. We are really promoting a big push in improving vocabulary in school, so please test your children's knowledge on the words and facts they are learning in school.
Pupils will be given homework every Friday and will be expected to return the homework on the following Wednesday. Homework will be checked by adults in the class and all pupils will be expected to complete it. We have an additional "Lucky Listeners" homework this year, where pupils are competing to read a piece of text to as many people as possible on a weekly basis. So please sign the back of their homework sheet when you hear them read.
Maths homework is now online and is completed on the Mathletics website. Please find the link to their Maths homework below.
Our pupils are also subscribed to the following educational sites and have been given login details for each of them:
Bug Club (reading) https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0
Times Table Rock Stars: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student
Spelling Shed: https://play.spellingshed.com/#/login
Please check back to our class page on a regular basis for updates, pictures and news :)
I am personally looking forward to a great year ahead
