Year 5 - Adders and Foxes
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely summer. We are looking forward to working with your children this year. This page is designed to provide you with the information needed to make the year as successful as possible.
This half term our topic is Victorians. This is a History and Geography themed topic. The children will be learning what life was like in the Victorian era.
After the half term break, our topic will be CSI. More information will follow closer to the time.
Year 5 P.E. days this year will be:.
Foxes: Monday’s and Tuesday’s
Adders: Tuesday’s and Thursday’s
Your child must have their P.E. kit on these days. Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
Homework and Spellings
Homework and spellings will be given out on Thursday’s and will be due in the following Wednesday. Spellings must not only be practised, but also written into full sentences. If your child does not know the meaning of the word and is unable to find a definition, please make sure they speak to a member of the Year 5 team about the meaning. If homework is not completed, then children will be spending their Wednesday lunch time completing it.
This year we are continuing promote a love of reading across the school. It is incredibly important that you read with your children daily, and, where possible, ask them questions about what they have read to support their comprehension. Please make sure you fill in your child’s reading diary.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point throughout the year, please speak to either your child’s class teacher or another member of the Year 5 Team.
