Welcome to 5B!

W.B. 17th September 2018



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




This week's learning:




We will continue reading Arthur and the Golden Rope in English. We will be focusing on editing and proof reading our letters, focusing on how to use our 'Purple Pen of Power' and our target cards.





This week, we will continue to work on subtraction and addition skills and how we apply these to worded problems. 



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 as well as be expected to complete an X-Factor from their X-Factor booklet. We will also set a spelling and sentence structure activity for them to work on. 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 (passwords currently being raised for this).  





Maths and English homework is given out on a Friday and returned the following Tuesday


Daily reading

All of the children are expected to read every day and to write their own comment on their reading record books which must be brought in every day.

If you've any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with Miss Brunswick!
