Year 5HW 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 5HW - we're so pleased to welcome you back to school!
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 and the one we learn about first!). 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!
It’s very important that your child is appropriately dressed for P.E. We are asking that the children come to school wearing their P.E. kit on their P.E. day. They can stay in their P.E. kit for the day, and do not need to bring normal school uniform into school as well.
As much as the weather allows, all P.E. will be OUTDOORS, therefore children should wear black leggings or a black tracksuit, a white t-shirt and either a black jumper or school jumper. They must wear trainers.
Our P.E. day is on a Wednesday.
Reading Books and Reading Records
Every Monday, all children will choose a reading book which is suitable for their reading level, and bring this home along with their reading record. Their reading book and reading record must be kept at home and brought back to school each Friday.
Reading every day is very important; in Year 5, we encourage children to read their book for at least 15 minutes each day. To show that they have done this, we would still ask that you sign your child's reading record every day during the school week. We will check the reading records when they are returned each Friday, and for every day they have read (and had it signed by you), they will receive a stamp in their bookmark. 20 stamps means a prize from our special prize box!
Please remember that if your child brings their own packed lunch into school, it must be in a disposable bag.
