In Year 5 the children will be given three pieces of homework a week, English, Maths and Reading each week. Their homework will be given out on different days of the week however every class will have a full week to do their homework.
This year each class will have 2 sessions of PE which will be held outside weather permitting. Your child is not required to bring in a PE kit this year but must have suitable footwear. If you choose to bring a PE kit to school, please only bring them on your PE days and then they should be returned home to be washed that same day. If your child wears jewellery, in particular earrings, they must be able to remove them themselves or alternatively choose not to wear any on a day they will be doing PE. Please send your child in with a bottle of water every day, clearly labelled with their name.

Our work- Spring Term:
In Art we have been creating drawings that have a three-dimensional look. We have created these by using a vanishing point on the horizon.
Our work- Autumn Term:
In Guided Reading we have been reading and listening to the story of the ‘Explorer’. The children have been able to answer comprehension questions as well as create storyboards of what is happening in the chapters we have covered.
In Art for this half term we have been designing and sculpting vases. We have researched different vases through the ages as well as looking at different patterns for our designs. We even had a practise run at modelling them using plasticine. We made our final products out of clay and painted them with acrylic paint.
In Maths we have been focussing on all the operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). The children have been able to use their abilities to use column method and short multiplication and division. We have even been able to complete word problems and test like questions as practice for next year!
