In English, the children have been working on warning stories and developing their setting description skills. They have been using dictionaries and thesauruses (and colour thesauruses) to improve their writing.
In maths, the children have been working on developing their place value knowledge and are beginning to work on the four operations.
Below is some key information that you may find useful.
Please ensure you record any reading that takes place at home with a simple comment inside your child’s Reading Record. Children will be awarded with a reading bead every time their Reading Record is signed. We currently have three children that have over 20 reading beads! If the children read certain books from our reading recommendation list, they earn a sticker and 5 house points. Six children have read a book from the list, a good start 5IB!
Spellings are handed out on a Friday ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week. Children can practise their spellings in any way they like – we have sent home a list of suggested techniques (some are quite fun!) to help the children learn the weekly spellings.
These are also handed out every Friday. At the start of the year, all children in year 5 started on their 3 times tables. It is essential the children practise their times tables every week ready for their test on the following Friday. When the children have answered all 60 times tables questions correctly they can then move up to the next level. We currently have 2 children on their 6 times tables! I have attached a couple of recommended websites for children to use to help with learning their times tables below.
