'Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.' (Philippians 2:3)
Welcome to Year 5!
For Science Week, we had some special visitors come into our school called Safari Phil and Spiky Dave. They brought in an amazing variety of animals which included a tortoise, cockroaches and even a SNAKE! Check us out holding them and even putting one of the animals on our heads below.
In D&T this year we have researched, designed and made our own Granola bars with personalised packaging. Take a look at the process of creating our Granola bars below!
Year 5 researched the Easter story during an R.E lesson, working in groups to read and reflect on different aspects.
Our homework policy is 'little and often'. Daily homework includes reading and five minutes practising spellings and times tables. This work should be recorded into your homework book and signed daily by an adult.
Seesaw (home learning)
Daily reading is the best way we can help our children succeed, so it is the most important part of the daily homework. Aim for 20 minutes each day. Your child will be given a reading book that is matched to their reading level. They will also choose a book from the school library which they can read for pleasure. In your children's homework books, you will find two sheets (one for fiction, one for non-fiction) that you can use to support you with your questioning for your child.
Useful Websites for Learning
You will find log-in details for these websites stuck into your child's homework books.
