Look at what have been learning...
Last term we learned about WW2 in Britain. We had a brilliant start to the term with an Air Raid drill in the hall with Air Raid Warden Williams! She taught us how to put on our gas masks (pretend!) and how to take shelter during an air raid! The siren was very loud! Weeks later, we were eveacuated for the day to Murton Park where we spent the day in the 1940's. We took part in all kinds of activities from doing the laundry with a poser and mangle, putting out the incendary bombs with the Chief Warden and baking on the ration! When we got back we learned how to 'make-do-and-mend' by making a teddy bear our of an old t-shirt! We loved our class readers 'Letters From The Lighthouse' and wrote some amazing stories based on the text! We used our science skills to work out which was the best types of blackour curtains and designed and made a 3D air raid shelter in our computing lessons!

Each week your child will be set homework in the following areas:
- Maths - work linked to this weeks work in class
- Maths - key mental targets (see below to download a spare copy)
- GPS (Grammar/Punctuation/Spelling)
Reading at Home
Children will also be expected to complete reading at home to an adult. The expected amount is at least 4 reads of 20 minutes per week it is vital that your child completes this as it supports the learning that takes place in the classroom
All reading at home should be recorded via the NEW GO READ APP
Ask your teacher for the login if you need a replacement!
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets uploaded to their seesaw home learning space, but a spare can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one page 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.

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.
PE Sessions in Spring Term 1:
- 5 Dragon - Elite Sports - Monday Afternoon and Friday
- 5 Phoenix - Elite Sports - Monday Afternoons and Friday
- 5 Griffin - Elite Sports - Friday

Children in 5D and 5P will need to wear PE kit on both Monday and Friday this half term
