Look at what have been learning...
Last term we learned about Volcanoes! We started off with a science lesson about mixing materials to create a volcanic eruption! We learned about tectonic plates - using jigsaws to help us understand - and the layers of the earth. We created Van Gogh inspired pictures using a variety of different media and enjoyed learning how to mix paint colours.
We also visited the Holy Cross Church as part of our RE work on places of worship! Of course we didn't forget to fit in some maths and English too!
Look at some of our pictures!

Reading At Home & Online
A reading record can be found in your child's homework folder. It should be completed at least 3 times per week to record reading completed at home. This can be from a school book, an ability appropriate book from home or online reading (see below)
Children can now access reading books online. The class teacher will have set up reading books online at each child's current book band. Login details will have been given to each child at the start of the year. Click the image above to link to the 'Bug Club' website.
All reading at home should be recorded in the reading log book so that children can be rewarded for their efforts.
Spelling /Handwriting Homework
You will find copies of the spelling/handwriting homework in your child's homework folder, pupils are only expected to complete one sheet per week.
English & Maths Homework Books
Different pages will be set each week to reinforce work we have covered in class
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each Wednesday - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets in their homework folder, but a spare copy can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
Further Homework Support
Purple Mash is a fantastic resource that allows your child to word process, create images, create code and much much more. Every child has a login for Purple Mash and this can be used both at school and at home. Please click on the image above to link to this site.
Please ask your child's teacher if you require a new username and password.
Additional times table challenges can be created from the website below.

Fitness Fridays - with Elite
All classes in Y5 get a chance to work with the Elite Coaches on a Friday. To make changing between classes easier, we would prefer pupils to come to school wearing their official Green/Black PE kit on Friday instead of their regular uniform.
This term we will be doing athletics outside. Children will need to wear their school black PE shorts/black tracksuit bottoms & t-shirt for these lessons. Black school hoodies maybe worn over the top to keep pupils warm for the rest of the day. As this is the uniform for the day we ask that children wear the official school PE kit rather than sports clothing from other clubs etc.
5D - Change 4 Life & PE Elite Coaches
5U - PE Elite Coaches & Topic Lessons
5P - Topic Lessons & Change 4 Life
5G - Art
(5P, 5U & 5D will need to bring PE kit in a bag to change into for the afternoon session)
