Welcome all to Year 5 - Autumn.
I know that starting a new school year, in a new class, with a new teacher after being off school for so long can seem daunting. Be assured that you are in safe hands and I have many exciting, fun and challenging activities that will keep you engaged this term. Thank you to all those children who have introduced their parents/ guardians to me. Everyone feels better when they can put a face to a name. If I haven't managed to see you yet, I am on the playground every evening; wave and say hello!
I will attach our newsletter with full details below, but curriculum highlights this term include:
Place Value and Written methods
Written addition and subtraction
Our topic this term is The Vikings. We will be doing all manner of exciting things including learning about:
Geography and History:
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. Each week, children will receive a piece of literacy home learning, a piece of maths home learning and fifteen spellings to learn.
PE Kits - Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day.
Reading Records - Reading records will be checked and book changing will take place each Friday if needed. We encourage the children to also read on BugClub which can also be accessed at home on any device.
Home Learning - Home Learning will be handed out on Friday and should be returned to school no later than following Wednesday (you can return it to school on Monday or Tuesday).
Don't forget you can track our progress throughout the term on Twitter @firsprimarysale #Year5DT. I have also included a picture of our classroom so you can see what it will look like when you return. I am excited to see you all.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mr Liddell, Mr Tumilty & Mrs Reynolds-Smith
