An excellent start to Year 5 – well done! You have all demonstrated resilience and hard work in your first half term. I know that this will continue and because of this you will achieve great things!!

This half term our topic is The Environment. We will be looking closely at the world around us and the impact we as humans are having upon it.

The value that we are focussing on is self regulation. Who will be champion? We need to continue to demonstrate our other values: focus, resilience, boundaries, 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. They will be given a menu of homework choices that are cross-curricular.

PE: We will have PE on a Tuesday 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.

Another busy half term is planned with the run up to Christmas. Therefore keep a close eye on Class Dojo and the school newsletter for dates of planned events.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hawkins
