What have Year 5 been up to in the Autumn term…
We have been learning to read and write nonsense poems based around the Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. Acting out the poem was a lot of fun!
Every Friday afternoon we enjoy a relaxing session of yoga. This has helped us focus on our well-being and take time to look after our mental and physical health.
Butterflies of Britain have continued to run our woodland session this year. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves this year. Our favourite session was shared with the Nursery class!
Our class PE days this half term are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has the full and correct PE kit on these days.
As I am sure you know, reading is an essential part of your child’s education. This year, the student council are continuing to run a reading challenge with the chance to win a small trophy for the class each week.
The minimum time spent reading at home is four times a week.
Outdoor learning will continue as usual on a Friday. It is important your child has an appropriate change of clothes – Long sleeves and trousers and suitable footwear.
Class Dojo will continue to be used this year. It is a great space where you can view photos, videos and information about what is happening in Year 5 and across the school. If you require another invite, please don’t hesitate to ask.
A homework menu will be given out at the beginning of each half term. Your child will need to complete a minimum of 5 activities each half term, handing one piece in each week on a Thursday. There is a homework club available if help or resources are needed.
As it is the beginning of a new school year, many of you may have new belongings. Please can you ensure that all belongings and named (PE Kits – Wellies – School Uniform – Bags – Coats – Water bottles etc).
Many thanks, Miss Beard
