Year 5HW 2019 - 2020




Welcome to 5HW! Mrs Hodges and Miss Wendt are delighted to be teaching your child this year!

There are lots of interesting and engaging topics to learn about in Year 5, including the Greeks, Space and the Victorians (that's Mrs Hodges' personal favourite!). We will be improving our reading and writing through investigating different genres and exploring different sentence structures and vocabulary. In Maths, we will be driving to perfect all the times tables to 12 x12 and learning lots of interesting maths facts about numbers, triangles and angles!

Things to remember!

P.E. kits and Book Bags

It’s very important that your child is appropriately dressed for P.E. We would recommend that your child brings in their P.E. kit every Monday and take it home again on Friday, as there may be additional opportunities for various physical activities throughout the week.

For INDOOR P.E. children should wear black shorts or leggings and a white t-shirt.

For OUTDOOR GAMES children should wear black shorts, leggings or tracksuit and a white t-shirt. As the weather becomes more chilly, please ensure they have a warm jumper too. They must wear footwear that is suitable for running and jumping in, trainers are ideal.

Our PE day (for both Indoor and Outdoor PE) is on a WEDNESDAY.

Please ensure that your child brings in their book bag, with their reading book and signed reading record in it, every day.
