Well, it may be freezing cold outside, but this won’t stop 5M from learning!
In our first week back, we had a great time dressing up to celebrate Book Week. As the school theme was Shakespeare, we have been reading Romeo and Juliet. Next week, we will be writing our own tragedy stories.
On Friday 9th March, 5M have been invited to Crestwood Secondary School to take part in a Science morning. This is a great opportunity for us to extend our science learning.
Monday 12th March- Friday 16th March is our Science Week. We will learn about famous explorers and find out what it takes to be an explorer.
Our topic of work will finish with a class trip to the Space Centre in Leicester! Click on the link below to start exploring.
Booster Club Update– Letters have been given out for this half term. Booster club will now take place on Thursdays.
Children’s homework is recorded in their diary each week.
In Year 5 children are set homework on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday. It is the children’s responsibility to ensure that this homework is completed by the day required and they will need to stay in and complete it if it is not done. It will be either Numeracy or SPaG linked to work completed in class.
Reading: Children need to be reading to an adult at least 3 x a week. Please make sure their diary is signed so they can earn the reading reward!
Times Tables: Children will have different times table focuses each week. They need to learn the multiplication and division facts. EG 7 x 9 = 63 63 ÷ 7= 9. They need to know these in mixed order and be able to answer in less than 5 seconds.
Spelling: Children will be given spellings each week to learn and they will be tested every Thursday. Click on the link to access the bronze, silver, gold and platinum spelling lists: year 5 olympic spellings 2018
