Y5 Aspen - Miss Ponter

Welcome to the world of Year 5. I hope your child has enjoyed the first few weeks of their new school year (I know I certainly have.) We have got stuck straight in and they are all working very hard already.

We are enjoying our new topics already: Ancient Egypt, Earth Sun and Moon, designing Homework Diary Covers and lots more. Look out on Twitter for photographic updates of these and give us a like!

I hope you received your Dojo invitations and are set up. We would like to also remind you about signing the charters in the new homework diaries (from pages 9-11.)

READING 
Your child is now either Lilac, Turquoise or Dark Blue and we will monitor their progress on these bands. I look forward to communicating through the diaries and offer the children a Dojo per reading recorded (when they have read three times) with an adult’s signature but I am happy for the children to take ownership of the other boxes. 


 

TIMESTABLES AND ARITHMETIC
Timestables and arithmetic tests will take place each week and your children need to be practising these skills at home. Spellings are also tested each Monday and new ones delivered. I have encouraged children to share their results with you at home and continue to work on those they are still struggling with. Each term, we will also be testing the 50 Year 5 Spelling List words and these will also need to be practised and reviewed at home.

HOMEWORK
From now on, homework will be sent out every 
Friday and will need to be back in school by the following Friday. Children should also place their work in their own folders. Year 5 Homework club is on a Monday evening. This club is for children who do not have access to computers/internet at home or who struggle to complete their homework independently. Please find more details of the homework on the ‘Homework page’ and spare maths sheets are available in the classroom.

PE AND SWIMMING

Our class will have a coaching session on Thursday afternoon and for the first half term they will have Swimming on a Wednesday afternoon, where they will need to have the correct uniform with them. (Now it is getting colder, they will need their tracksuits.)

I look forward to meeting you all at school at our coffee morning and at the end of this half term.

Best wishes,

Miss Ponter.
