Welcome to Y5 Juniper
Welcome back to what I know will be a fun-packed and exciting Spring Term. I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break and are ready to embrace the challenges ahead in this term. to fully grow our brains and learn from our wobbles.
Tuesday – Home learning should be returned to class completed. Spelling test completed in class.
Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits. Regular school uniform is not required on this day. Reading records brought to school.
Wednesday –New home learning will be set for the following week.
Please remember to be dressed in full uniform in September, including black shoes.
We expect children to read at home on a regular basis in year 5 and keep practising the rapid recall of their times tables up to 12x12. For the first half term each week, children will receive a piece of literacy home learning, a piece of maths home learning and fifteen spellings to learn. In the second half of the term, children will receive a home learning project to last the full half term as well as weekly spellings.
If there are changes to the weekly routine or there are any issues that arise, please let us know by contacting school either by phone or email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Art Gallery
Art is a lesson which gives us the opportunity to express our creativity. Sometimes our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is linked to festivals and celebrations in the calendar. Our units this year will be closely linked to drawing, printing and sculpting. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us! We hope you enjoy the images of our work that will be shared on here and our twitter page throughout the year.
As a school, we have been pushing a focus on reading for pleasure. It is very important for year 5 children to read regularly and read texts appropriate for them. In class we have our own bookcase and take part in a weekly reading for pleasure session where the children can choose to read in their own way! Children are also encouraged to share books they have been enjoying on our Recommendation Wall.
Methods In Maths
We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.
