Welcome to 5B!

W.B. 18th March 2019



PE kits will need to be brought in on a Tuesday and if you were originally in 4P, you will need to bring in your swimming kits on a Thursday. 






This week's learning:




We will continue reading our new class book 'The London Eye Mystery', focusing on writing a newspaper report .


Our shared reading topic for this week is 'Summarising'. 


Our spelling rule is 'words with the ee sound spelt ei'.





This week, we will be looking at the properties of polygons and completing our assessments for this term. 



If your child does not know their times tables, please practice these at home with them.

It is imperative that all children learn these as without this knowledge they cannot access the Year 5 Curriculum.




PE / Swimming:


Please bring PE kits for Tuesday.

PE: Black plimpsolls, black shorts and white t-shirts.




If you were in 4WS last half term, you will be swimming this half term. Please ensure your swimming kit is in school every Thursday. 

Please bring:

- a towel

- a swimming hat 

boys: snug-fitting shorts

girls: a one-piece swimming costume

If you prefer to cover up, you may also wear a tight-fitting one-piece with arms and legs - no skirt attachments.





You may bring a roll-on deodorant but no aerosols or sprays please! 


This week's homework:


The children will be set a maths task linked to their learning this week. We will also set two English tasks which may be spelling, grammar or reading comprehension based. There will also be activities on Mathletics for the children to work on as well as the expectation being that the children read one book from Bug Club weekly.




Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Chapter 12 - The Mirror of Erised
