Our new class book is called 'Welcome to Nowhere' By Elizabeth Laird.

This text is closely linked to our refugee project as it about a boy from Syria who becomes a refugee. Your child can bring in their own copy of the book if they would like to. 

Summer term in Y5

Our topics this term are 'Kings and Queens' and as one of our TED activities (Transform Enrichment Diploma) we are also doing on refugees and will be doing a project to support the local community.

Science

In Science, we have been learning about Forces and have carried out investigations, including designing parachutes for a sky diving company and creating our own balloon rockets! It was lots of fun and we learnt about forces in action.

How can you support your child at home?

Here are a few things which will really help to support your child's learning:

  • Listening to your child read at least 4 times a week
  • Practising spellings. Try look, cover & write. Your child could practise using and writing the word in sentences. Try a spelling scribble- your child can show you this!
  • Your child can use IXL regularly to independently practise their Maths skills.
  • Your child can use Read Theory independently to practise their Reading comprehension skills.
  • Your child will bring home 'Beat That' maths homework on a weekly basis.
  • Practising letter formation and neat handwriting always helps and when children improve their presentation they tend to feel more proud of their learning.
