Hope you are feeling refreshed and ready for another busy (yet fun!) half term in Year 5! I cannot believe that we are half way through our time in Elephants class. 

This half term our topic is World War 2.  You will learn when and why this significant event began and find out about the key individuals and countries involved. In addition to this, you will discover all about evacuation, learn what it was like to live with food rationing and learn the Lindy Hop. 

The value that we are concentrating on is boundaries. Who will be champion? We need to continue to demonstrate our other values: focus, self-regulation, resilience, respect and independence to help us achieve our best. We are celebrating our in-class achievements using Class Dojo. As a class, we need to work together to achieve class stars.

Homework: Year 5 will be given spellings to learn and will be tested the following Friday. Times tables and related division facts need to be learnt to aid fluency. A menu of homework choices (that are cross-curricular) is given out. A minimum of 3 pieces are to be handed in over the half term. I will run a homework club Wednesday and Thursday lunch if anyone would prefer to complete it in school with my support

PE: We will have PE on a Monday and Thursday. PE kit needs to be in on these days but it is recommended that it stays in school all week. Correct kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or dark shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers or plimsolls. Longer hair needs to tied up and earrings removed or covered.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hawkins
