Important information.

Year 5 timetable

Homework books will be given out every Friday. Children must choose one piece of homework from the designated box and return their completed homework the following Friday. The class teacher will explain which box they will be able to choose from each week.

Please sign your child’s reading record each evening. Regular reading helps children to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, and  in turn helps them to access the rest of the curriculum. Children may change reading books at school when they have finished them.

Children will receive spellings on Fridays. These should be practised in preparation for a spelling test the following Friday.

At the beginning of every half term your child will have a new homework task sheet glued into their homework book. Each week, children should choose one task from one of the boxes (the teacher will tell children which box we are working on each week). This will be set on a Friday, to be brought back to school by the following Friday at the latest. The new homework is designed to help children to refine a wide range of skills, and all tasks are related to our half termly learning challenge.

Our Class Book

This half term, as part of our Second World War topic, we are reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.

The book follows the main character Bruno, who becomes friends with Shmuel – a boy who lives on the other side of the mysterious wire fence near Bruno’s new home. It is a fantastic, emotive book and I am sure the children are going to love learning about some aspect of the war through it.
