Useful Information

Homework - Homework will be given out on a Thursday and due in the following Tuesday.  Homework in Year 5 will be Literacy, Maths and Spelling. Children are expected to learn their times tables and these are practised daily. 

Reading - Children are expected to read at least 5 times a week at home.  Please record reading at home in reading records.  Reading records will be checked daily. Their achievements are shown on their class reading tree. Every child has an apple on the tree which moves around as their days reading at home increase. It becomes very competitive to be the first one to reach the 'Golden Apple'!

PE - We have 2 PE lessons per week.  Please ensure PE kit is in school (including a change of footwear) Monday to Friday.

Summer 2 - Take One Culture

Our Take One Culture this term is Mexico. We shall be looking at different aspects of the country, such as its food, its festivals and its economy. Looking in particular at Mexico City, we will compare the city to Buenos Aires in Argentina and think about the difference in physical and human geography and the difference in their economies. Mexico will link with our D&T project, where we will design, produce and decorate biscuits based on the festival of The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos).
