Thank you!
Year 5
* Highlights of the Week *

Week Commencing 16th September 2019
This week saw the first school trip of Year 5 2019-20! Both classes were able to visit Jodrell Bank together and we all had a super busy, but fantastic time visiting all the exhibits, and our favourite - the inflatable planetarium.

In English, we applied all our learning so far to creating our very own Greek myths! Again, we carefully planned, then created and finally edited. The final results are very impressive, and will make a fantastic addition to our Showcase Writing book.

We have worked on our knowledge of timelines this week also, and in Maths, have deepened our understanding of place value to include number lines of incremental jumps.

Saturday will be the ColourRun - if you taking part, have lots of fun and a rainbow day!

Next Monday is our Curriculum Evening, and we look forward to seeing many of you there. We will also be giving some introductory details about the Anderton Centre. Don't worry if you are unable to attend, the presentations will be held in the E-Bag of the website.

Please keep encouraging your child to read, and practise their times tables daily. A little and often has a much bigger impact on their confidence and ability, particularly with times tables. Thank you for your support.

PE Kit - PE does take place outside, please ensure your child has tracksuit/ jogging bottoms and a jumper, please. (Indoor kit, which is the same as outdoor, plus the warmer layers, is a house t-shirt, black shorts and trainers/ black pumps).

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in-touch. Either come and see us before or after school, send a message for us to call you, or email the school for our attention.

We look forward to sharing this year together, and getting to know both you and your amazing children.

Learning Goals
There is so much to look forward to this term. We will enhance our scientific learning with a trip to Jodrell Bank, a highlight of which is always the inflatable planetarium. There is of course, harvest festival and the first class assembly of 5KB.

We will be looking at place value, and using it to underpin our learning in addition and subtraction. We will look at data in graphs and tables, then change topic to consider multiplication and division before moving to area and perimeter.

Throughout the year, we will constantly be applying our learning to real world problems.

Our fiction work will incorporate adventure stories using the theme of myths and legends. We will entertain using performance poetry as well as expressing preferences regarding haikus, kennings and limericks and will also create a variety of pieces within the theme of science fiction.

A key development in Year 5 is the ability to self-assess and improve work so we will be enhancing our skills of editing and improving our work. We do daily independent reading, and children are welcome to bring in their own books.
Further details of how homework will be presented and returned will follow soon.

Weekly spellings will continue as normal, and children should be encouraged to read on a daily basis, with progress logged within their Reading Record book. (This book is also a useful method of communication for quick messages, so do please drop us a note if helpful).
