Weekly Spellings

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.

Here are the spellings we will be learning throughout the year:

Home Reading

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. 

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.
