Welcome back to Summer Term 5

 

Our topic this term is the Anglo-Saxons. We will be exploring this topic through all areas of the curriculum.

 

In Writing, we will be presenting our work neatly; using different layout devices and a range of punctuation; linking paragraphs; spelling the Year 5 words; editing and improving our work and writing in the genre of a play-script, a discussion text, a debate, a biography and story writing. 

 

In Guided Reading, we will be exploring texts and answering comprehension questions about them.
 

In Maths, we will continue to practice and consolidate all learning linked to number, geometry, angles, position & direction, converting units of measure, prime numbers, perimeter & area, measure-volume.

 

In Computing, we will be communicating and presenting ideas.

 

See the Summer Topic web for a full list of learning objectives.

 

P.E Times:
Monday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that your child has a change of t-shirt, shorts and suitable P.E. shoes on these days.

 

Homework:

Children are expected to read daily and practice times tables and given spellings. Optional topic homework will be given out every 2-3 weeks, including 'chatter topics', which are ideas for conversations around the children's learning.

 

Drop off/pick up:

All children are to be accompanied by an adult to the KS2 gate in the mornings and to be collected from the same gate at the end of the school day. Please wait with your child/children until the gates are opened at 8:45am. 

Useful websites to support your child's learning.

They will open in a new window.
