Summer Term - Year 5

 

 

English & Maths: Our English this term will begin with looking at the animation of “The Piano” and using this as a basis for writing and then media presentations. After half term, we shall travel back in time to look at Myths and Legends from Ancient Greece.

Maths will cover a range of topics including handling data, word problems, all four calculations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication) and problem solving.  Times tables tests, set on a regular basis, will keep pupils on their toes, as will regular arithmetic tests.  Please encourage your child in learning these for speed and accuracy.  Please remember you can access TT Rockstars at home.

 

 

Spelling: Pupils will continue to receive regular spellings for the summer term and are tested on that week’s spelling list every Monday.  Please encourage your child to learn these thoroughly; we find that practising little and often works best! You can access Spelling Shed at home.

 

Humanities: Our next topic will look at life cycles, starting with plants, and we will write to you about how this topic fits in with the School’s Sex and Relationships Education Programme. For History we shall investigate how people lived in Ancient Greece, whilst pupils will continue with Spanish, Music and R.E lessons.

 

 

Reading Homework:  Although guided reading regularly takes place in school, it is important that your child reads a wide range of texts at home (both independently and with an adult or older sibling).  Reading diaries should be filled in regularly and brought to school each day along with your child’s reading book. Many children are enjoying the challenge of completing the Book Bingo grids. It would be great to see more Year Fives receiving their certificates before the end of the year. Reading diaries are checked regularly, but if you have written a note for your child’s class teacher, please remind them to show it to us!

 

 

 P.E.: PE is on Mondays on Wednesdays. Following our visit to Hathersage, we will enjoy adventurous outdoor activities and athletics.  Weather permitting, we will also have a go at various catching and fielding games.  Indoor P.E. kit should consist of a red or white T-shirt, black shorts and indoor sports shoes.  For outdoor P.E., children should have two layers of clothing: a long sleeved jumper or hoodie, T-shirt, jogging bottoms for chilly weather and shorts for heatwaves, plus outdoor trainers. Please make sure that children have an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times as our timetable can change depending on the weather.  Unless this gets very dirty, we will send kit home at the end of each half term.  It is a good idea for children to have a hat, sun cream and water bottle when the weather (hopefully) gets hot. 

 

 

We hope this information will be useful for you and your child. Should you have a special interest in any of the areas we cover and are able to support the class in any way, we will be delighted to hear from you.  If you have any questions or would like to have a chat about any aspect of your child’s progress at school, we are always happy to meet with you.

 

Many thanks for your support and co-operation.                                                         Mr Gingell (5Gi), Mrs Greig (5Gr) and Mr Mawer (5M)
