Welcome to Year 5! What’s this year all about? Working together for your child ‘The education of the child is a partnership between home and school.’ Your child will be writing their statement for the home/school agreement then it will come home to you to sign and return to school. What it means to be in Year 5 Responsible Independent Organised A good start to the day • Punctual • Organised and ready to learn • A calm start to the day What your child needs in school PE Kit We will do PE on Thursdays but keeping the kit in school is a good idea – you never know when we will get an extra chance for a quick PE lesson. Swimming Kit This half term we will swim on Thursdays and Fridays. More about this in a minute….. Book Bag This should contain your child’s reading book, reading record and homework. A fruit snack for break time. Homework •Daily reading to be recorded in the reading record and initialled by an adult •Spelling homework (we are working on spellings in class at the moment and will be providing homework later on in the year). •Literacy homework every fortnight •Maths linked to the areas learned every fortnight •Project linked to topic (to be completed over a number of weeks – watch this space!)
