Spellings will be handed out each Friday and tested the following Friday. We will also carry out spelling sessions in school, which includes learning about the words, spelling patterns and daily word practice. As part of our weekly homework, we also ask that your child completes the dedicated spelling tasks, this may also include a spelling quiz on Purple Mash (a website that your child has individual login details for).
CLIC is our daily maths skills practice! Each day, as a starter for our maths lessons, we will ask the children to take part in some quick maths tasks. These will help your child with both their maths knowledge and also their quick recall speed. CLIC stands for Counting, Learn Its (facts you just have to learn), It’s Nothing New (building on existing facts) and Calculations.
This week in CLIC
C – Counting in multiples of 0.8
L – The 6 times table (revision)
I – Jigsaw numbers involving decimals
C – Using smile multiplication to mentally calculate 1-digit x 2-digit
The year 5 teachers are Mr Czartowski (5 Chipmunks) and Mr Miller (5 Macaws), they will be supported in class by Mrs Czartowski and Mrs Macdonald. Mrs Crook and Mrs Norfolk will be working with the children during PPA sessions (Monday afternoons)
Year 5 is an important year and sees the children make the transition to upper key stage two. In year 5 we look to place more responsibility on the children by encouraging them to be more mature in their approach to their learning. It is important to see the children taking greater ownership of their learning becoming more independent and reflective.
We have recently moved away from Mathletics in school and are trailling a number of other websites where your child can improve their maths skills and fluency. Please ask your child about the following sites (click on the links below).
The children will be expected to read regularly at home and have a reading record to record this in. Although we encourage the children to read regularly, this may only be a couple of pages or 5 to 10 minutes. They should also make sure they regularly (at least once a week) bring in their home reading record.
Games and PE
Can we ask that the children bring a full indoor and outdoor kit with them at the start of the week. Normally, indoor PE will be on a Friday and outdoor games will be on a Wednesday afternoon.
