Our current RE topic is Mission. We will be learning about the mission worker's within the church and community and that each person has a mission from God.
Your child will be given a dedicated day when they need to bring their home reading book into school so that they can read with an adult at least once a week. Please make sure that you read with your child for a few minutes each night and talk about the book to help them develop their comprehension skills. It is vital that your child(ren) return their book(s) on the appropriate day to ensure that they are changed regularly enabling them to access a variety of texts and genres.
For maths this term, we will be focusing on multiplication and division! We will investigation factors, multiples, prime and composite numbers. We will be multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, 1000, 10,000!
In our basic skills we are focusing on our times tables and will be tested every Friday. It is important that we learn and practice these as much as possible at home!
Every Monday morning the children will be given a weekly spelling mat in class. Children will be given half termly spellings at the beginning of the term. They will complete these spelling mats throughout the week and do activities relating to these spellings during grammar lessons. They will then be tested on the spellings every Friday morning.
Times Tables Test
Your child will bring home a times tables card at the start of term. Please spend time with your child to help them prepare for their fortnightly test (every other Friday). This will also help your child in all areas of Maths covered in Year 5.
Homework Menu: Every half term, a homework menu will be given out with a selection of tasks to be completed, across all areas of the curriculum. It is your choice how many you complete, however you must do at least one and hand it in by the end of the half term. Your completed work will be celebrated.
