Year 5 2019-2020
YEAR 5 TA
Welcome back to school,
Myself and Mrs Ormerod hope you and the children have had a restful summer break. We're very much looking forward to further developing your child’s learning journey in year 5. We have a very busy year ahead.
This half term in literacy we will be tying in our WW2 topic into our writing. We will be exploring the vocabulary and structure of letters and diaries of the time and producing our own. We will also be looking at the text ‘Letters from the lighthouse’ again drawing on the vocabulary used. We will also be creating a short story focussing on new vocabulary and setting description. I have put on the website, information regarding the expected grammar for year 5 that we will be covering, on it there are some examples to help to explain some of terminology.
In Numeracy we will be focussing on number and place value and statistics.
The children will need their P.E. kits for Thursdays as they will be doing sport activities with the sports coach. The children will also need to bring their swimming kit on Wednesdays.
Once again, I must reiterate the importance of reading, this not only develops a love of reading but also develops imagination which is essential for story writing. Please wherever possible encourage your child to read at home and bring their Home reading and library books back into school when they are ready to change them. Keep checking our new website for updates about new library books
As I mentioned before we are wanting to inspire a love of reading if your child is not enjoying their school book and prefers to read a book of their own please just make a note in the reading book journal so that the children can be rewarded for reading for pleasure.
In science we are looking at forces and examining and testing different forces.
Homework as usual will be spellings and times tables with the optional homework on the homework grid.
Mrs K Taylor.
