Welcome Back to Autumn 2

Week 1 Autumn 2

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term

This term we will be looking at World War 1 in our Learning Across the Curriculum Lessons. We are planning a trip to support this learning and will give an update when we have a booking in place. Unfortunately the Imperial War Museum is fully booked for the rest of the year but the Year 5 team recommend a visit, especially as it is free and local.

In Maths we are looking at Multiplication and Division, so there has never been a better time to practise Times Tables at home. There are various apps to accommodate this, ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ is especially effective.

Calipso will be doing Swimming every Monday afternoon and will need swimming kits. Girls need one-piece swimming costumes, and children with long hair will require swimming caps (in line with the swimming pools policies.)

PE will continue on a Thursday and all children need the bring in kits (not wear them in), unless they have a medical reason- accompanied by a signed note.

Reading Records will be sent home as usual and checked on Mondays and Fridays, children need to be completing at least 3 tasks every 7 days.

Every week children should be completing Maths, LAC and Spelling Homework.

Spellings need to be written out 5 times. Maths needs to be completed in their book and they should choose one LAC task every week and spend at least 30 minutes completing it.
