OUTDOOR LEARNING SESSIONS
Forest school sessions will be every other Tuesday.We'll put up the dates on the classroom window so children know when to bring in their clothes. As the weather gets colder, long sleeves and layers are a must. Snow boots (or similar) will help keep their feet warmer than wellies, but any waterproof footwear can be used. However, it would be helpful for them to have a pair of wellies in school at all times. We do a lot of our learning outside, and as the winter draws in, wellies will help prevent soggy feet.
PE will be on a Monday.
Homework Tasks, Reading & Multiplication Facts
Homework is an important part of school life and should help you to build confidence in key skills. In Year 5 we expect that you will be doing approximately 30 minutes per night.
Currently, our weekly homework schedule is as follows:
Thurs: Literacy and Maths homework will be given, to be returned by the following Tuesday.
Alongside written tasks, it is essential that you should continue to read at home with an adult at least three times per week. Reading to, and with, others will help you to develop your understanding of the plot and characters of your story and will also help you to discuss the meaning of any new vocabulary that you might come across.
Daily practice of multiplication tables facts is also very important in year 5 as you're going to need these facts on the tip of your tongue to help you to complete more formal calculations in class. We recommend that you spend 5-10 minutes each morning, possibly after breakfast, practising. There are lots of ways that you can practise: singing, matching cards, writing them down, using a timer to beat your score or using an app on a tablet are all very useful methods.
