Year 5 - Owls and Foxes
Welcome back to what we hope will be the start of a great academic year. We hope you all had a lovely summer holiday! We are sure your children are eager to start in their new Year 5 classes. Please note the following information needed to make this year as successful as possible:
This half term our topic is the Anglo-Saxons. This topic links into our History curriculum. We will also be focusing on Computer Skills during weekly computing lessons.
Year 5 P.E. days are Mondays & Tuesdays. Your child must have their P.E. kit on these days. Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
As you may be aware, Cooks Spinney has adopted an online homework policy. Your child’s Mathletics homework will be set on Thursdays. Reading Eggs is optional; however, we do encourage children to read with an adult at least 3 times per week to build up their vocabulary and comprehension skills. If you do not have access to the internet at home, an after-school homework club held on Fridays will be running soon. Please enquire with the reception office to secure a space for your child.
Any queries please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 5 team.
Mr Beaumont, Mr Lucas and Mrs Whitbread
