Welcome to Year 5
Everyone is very excited and is settling into life in the school. Please do not hesitate to speak with us if you have any queries. Thank you for your continued support in helping your child with their reading, times tables and other homework.
We look forward to continuing to work alongside you in educating your child for the rest of the academic year.
Ms Perezenetseva and Mr Jewels
Here is the Year 5 homework grid for the Autumn Term.
A reminder that homework is due in every Thursday and will be given back on Friday.
Optional maths homework will be given out weekly. This is an opportunity for you to practise some of the skills we have been learning in class. We do not expect to see this back as it is for the children’s practise at home if they wish to do it.
Anti Bullying Week 2017
This year’s Anti Bullying Week theme was – “All Different, All Equal”. The slides on the document can be shared with your child about the feelings they have around bullying. Bullying is a serious issue in schools and one we work hard to teach the children about in terms of the impact such behaviour can have. It is never something any one should experience but by teaching the children about the ways it can be stopped and dealt with it should help them to feel confident to speak about it. We hope that you find the information useful.
Throughout the academic year 2017 -18 homework will be set for each year group via a range of different activities every half term. Children are expected to complete one activity per week and to hand it in on Thursdays. They should complete each activity once. It is our hope that by setting homework in this way, it offers families a more flexible approach and parents more of an opportunity of supporting their children’s learning. Activity grids will be put on the school web site under Year Group pages. Please click on the documents below for further details.
The slides from the presentation given by Mr Soyka about next year’s residential trip to Stackpole can be found at the link below. We hope that you find them useful. If there is anything further information that you require please speak to Mr Soyka.
