I know that starting a new school year in a new class with a new teacher can be daunting. Be assured that you are in good 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; come 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
Writing Kenning poetry, riddle-like phrases used by Vikings and Anglo-Saxons

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 homelearning, a piece of maths homelearning and fifteen spellings to learn. Homelearning is usually given out on a Friday and should be returned no later than Wednesday to enable us to mark and feedback.
