This week the children will continue their work based on letter writing. The children will show their understanding of letter writing as well as applying that knowledge to write letters of their own.
This week the children will focus on misconceptions that arose in the quizzes. They will discuss strategies that they can use to help them solve similar problems in the future.
Welcome to the Autumn Term in Year 5
It is great to see the children again, looking re-energised, smart and ready for the new year ahead. We have started this year with our Arts week, which this year is based on the film Robin Hood. The children have already studied the story, characters and settings and have begun practising skills that will help produce some fantastic art work. The completed art work will be displayed near the library. Please come and take a look. You won’t miss the arrows and targets! This half term, our topic will be ‘Prince of Thieves’, and the children will be learning about newspapers as well as studying leavers, pulleys and gears by studying medieval catapults in Science. We will again be using ‘Times Table Rockstars’, as this was hugely successful and popular last year. Children in Year 5 should be able to immediately recall their times table facts up to 12×12, and it is a great program the children can access at home. Additionally, we will be launching the ‘Spelling Shed’, which is another online app the children can use to improve their spelling strategies. Username and passwords will be available in their diaries soon, and we would ask that you encourage the children to use these at home. We have really enjoyed hearing about all the reading the children are doing at home, and this continue to be a primary focus for us in Year 5. Children should read at least five times a week and record this in their diaries.
