Welcome to 5WR
Week Beginning- 11th February 2019
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I will be your teacher, Mrs Warren-Searle. On a Friday, you will have Mrs Ridge.
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 homework
The children will be set homework based on spelling, grammar/reading comprehension and an activity based on their maths learning this week. They will also be expected to access the activities from Mathletics and to read at least one book on Bug Club.
This week's learning:
This week we will continue reading our class book, 'King of the Sky'.
The expectation is that the children read every night at home, preferably to an adult. Whomever reads with the children/or if the child reads independently, they make comments linked to our shared reading focus. Our shared reading focus for this week is 'Making Predictions'. Reading records must be brought to school on a daily basis.
Our spelling rule this week is words with the suffix 'ence'.
Our grammar focus this week is on past and present tense verbs.
This week in maths we will be:
completing our 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.
PE / Swimming:
Please bring PE kits for Tuesday.
PE: Black plimpsolls, black shorts and white t-shirts.
If you were in 4WS last year, you will be swimming on Thursdays. This will start next week. Please bring in your swimming kit.
