Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to Year 5!
We all hope that you have had a wonderful summer!
The first topic for this term is Materials, which is a science unit.
Reading continues to be a key focus this year and it is important that reading takes place both in and out of school. We all need to be reading fluently, with an average speed of 90 words per minute. We also ask that the children read a variety of different texts as this will ensure that they are familiar with a range of books and styles. The children will have their records and reading progress checked and tracked weekly. This reading can be independent or shared.
All the children need to continue to complete Maths Whizz and as part of their homework, they will be expected to complete at least 35 minutes at home each week. For those who don't have access to it at home, they can use Maths Whizz at break and lunchtimes.
Any questions, then please do get in contact with us.
