Welcome to 5L
Week Beginning 11th February 2019
I will be your teacher; Mr Lafafian.
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 in on a Thursday.
This week's homework
The children will be set a maths task linked to their learning this week. We will also set a spelling, grammar and or reading comprehension 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.
This week's learning:
This week we will continue reading our book 'King of the Sky'.
The expectation is that the children read every evening to an adult. Said adult then makes a comment in their reading record based on the shared reading focus, which this week is making predictions. If an adult does not read with the child, the child must read independently and comment in their reading record. Reading records must be brought to school on a daily basis.
Our grammar focus this week is past and present tense verbs.
Our spelling rule this week is words with the suffix 'ence'.
This week in maths we will be:
completing our half-termly assessments as well as looking at bar charts.
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.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Have a wonderful week,
Mr Lafafian and Mrs Storer
