UPDATE ON HOME LEARNING:
Home learning spelling tasks are being sent home on a paper copy this week as Google Classrooms is still in the hands of our service provider who is working on transferring classes. Apologies for this delay. Please send in your child's home learning on paper by next Thursday. Please help them learn their spellings using the spelling menu provided. Please see the home learning sheet below for this week's home learning sheet.
Welcome to Year 5
How fabulous to be teaching our class again after our truncated time back in Year 3! I have two thriving lavender plants from the lavender we planted in 2020 before the first lockdown - a sure sign of hope for the future!
The class have settled in very well to the Year 5 expectations of work and behaviour and they have a retained their zest for learning and special enthusiasm for science, history and stories.
Basics routines reminder:
HL will begin next week and will be set on Fridays and should be submitted on line by the following Thursday.
Home learning will be on google classrooms. Please contact the office if you need help with this in any way and they will advise. We would like all children to have the equality of opportunity that Google classrooms offers so it important that we try to make this happen where possible. Obviously, a paper copy can be provided but it may not offer the rich learning experience where links to the worldwide web can be made to enrich learning.
Spellings Home learning:
Children will be given spellings to learn each week and a spelling menu of ways to practise at home. Parents will also receive a hard copy of the spelling test so you can see how your child is getting on and practise any errors. Some children will be working on the Year 5 and 6 word list and others will be revising Year 3 and 4 word list. All statutory spellings can be found in your reading record. Everyone has a new one of these! All children will receive the Year 5 spelling rule lesson in school to ensure we are all on track.
Maths Home learning:
Maths will be set on professor assessor each week.
Reading Home learning:
As always, reading is a key part of home learning so please sign the reading record to let me know of great comprehension discussions taking place around a text or comments on fluency or expression. We are focussing on VOCABULARY Victor this term so jot down any juicy or interesting words that you read or hear in your reading record so we can discuss in class.
As always, please let me know any issues that arise ASAP so I can 'nip it in the bud' or indeed let me know any good news we can celebrate in class! I am always available at the end of the day or from 8am in the morning.
The Year 5 team and I look forward to a great year ahead!
Best Wishes from
Miss Wilkinson, Mrs Oborne, Mrs Valentine and Mrs Clermont
