Welcome to 5S



Week Beginning 15th October 2018


I will be your teacher for this half term. My name is 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

NB: WB 15.10.18

We will not be setting any formal homework for the half term; instead we would ask that the children read daily, read at least 2 books on Bug Club and complete the activities set on Mathletics.


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).  

This week's learning:



This week we will continue reading Arthur and the Golden Rope and completing our newspaper report. We will also be completing Bug Club tests during this week. 



This week in maths we will be:

assessing what we have learnt this half term through arithmetic and reasoning tests. 


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
